Biography of Simon Van Wickle
Wayne County, NY Biographies





Van Wickle, Simon, was born in Lyons, Wayne county, September 2, 1817, and died at his home in Savannah March 8, 1894, of exhaustion following an attack of la grippe. His father was Evart Van Wickle and his mother Catharine (Dorchester) Van Wickle. They were natives of the State of New Jersey. In 1845 Mr. Van Wickle married Maria Lloyd, daughter of Peter and Sarah (Erickson) Lloyd. Five children were born to them: Sarah C., now Mrs. E. J. Carris; Charles D., Simon H., Amelia A., and Mary E., now Mrs. W. H. Sweeting. In 1869 Charles died of inflammation of the brain, and in 1877 Simon died of inflammation of the spinal cord. The loss of these promising sons saddened the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Van Wickle for many years. In 1891 Mrs. Van Wickle died suddenly of apoplexy. Her death coming so unexpectedly was a blow of almost crushing force to the surviving members of the family. Mr. Van Wickle's chosen occupation was that of farming, in which he was very successful. In closing this brief biography of Simon Van Wickle, it may truthfully be said that he was a conscientious, upright, honorable man, and died respected and esteemed by all who knew him.
