    Here lies the body of Jacobus Wynkoop, who departed this life the 4th of May, 1795, aged 74 years. [#167, Captain Jacobus Wynkoop - chw.]

You that pass by, behold the scene and weep,
Beneath a father and mother sleep.
True, as the scripture says, man's life's a span;
The present moment is the life of man.

Notes:

    The numbers and notes above, refer to Richard Wynkoop's 1904 edition of the Wynkoop Genealogy in the United States of America.

    I had assumed that Jacobus, as a longtime resident of Kingston, New York, would be buried there, but apparently I was wrong. Patricia Law Hatcher in her book, Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Vol. 4, Dallas, Pioneer Heritage Press, 1987, has this to say:

    WYNCOOP Jacobus    Albany rural cem, Albany NY 31

    If anyone can tell me where this "rural cemetery" can be found, I'd appreciate hearing from you. I can be contacted at chwynkoop@hotmail.com.

    All my best,

    Chris
