Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Sarah Jane Booth {Gen 4}

It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Sarah Jane Booth (Harriet Houston, Sarah, James, William) was born in  Orange Co, New York March 19th 1823, to parents Harriet Houston and John Barker Booth.

Sarah Jane married William Tell Wynkoop (1817-1870) February 28th 1850 at the First Presbyterian Church in Goshen, Orange Co, New York.

Sarah Jane and William had at least seven children: all born Bellevue, Jackson Co, Iowa

  • Isabella Houston Wynkoop b. 30 Sep 1851 d. 2 Aug 1914 m. Hiram W Ray
  • Benjamin Wynkoop b. 7 Aug 1853 d. 23 Dec 1910 m. Elinor Strobridge
  • Ella Mary Wynkoop b. 7 Feb 1856 d. 23 Jul 1897 m. Frederick Fuller no issue

  • Catherine Wynkoop b. 6 Oct 1863 d. 12 Sep 1864
  • William Trott Wynkoop b12 Sep 1865 d. UNK

The newlyweds removed to Iowa shortly after their marriage, appearing on the 1850 US Census dated September 10th 1850, in Bellevue, Iowa. In 1857 Wm Tell purchased 80 acres of government land in Jackson Co, Iowa. William Tell Wynkoop was a merchant by trade.

Sarah Jane Booth Wynkoop's death is unknown. She last appears on the 1885 Iowa State Census. William Tell Wynkoop died tragically January 30th 1870 when he was thrown from a sleigh. He is buried in the First Presbyterian Cemetery in Bellevue, Jackson Co, Iowa.
