Nicholas 393, Judge Henry 157, Nicholas 46, Gerret 5, Cornelius

County, Penn. : married, in 1850, Anna McKnight Decatur Twiggs,
daughter of Major Levi Twiggs, who fell at Chapultepec, Mexico,
and niece of Captain Stephen Decatur, Jun., who was commonly
known as "Commodore." They had no child.

Francis commanded a regiment of militia, in Schuylkill
County, Penn. One of the companies volunteered for the war
against Mexico, under the call of Governor Francis Rawn Shunk,
and Wynkoop went with it as a private. At Pittsburg, he was
elected colonel. He was at the capture of Vera Cruz, and in the
battles of Cerro Gordo and Huamantla, and in numerous skirm-
ishes, and he exhibited bravery and skill, and received honorable
mention for gallant service.

General Scott wrote also of him, as follows : "Some days since,
[Jan., 1848], Colonel Wjmkoop, of the ist Pennsylvania Volun-
teers, tendered his services to go, with a few men, to seize the
guerilla priest, Jarauta, at the head of a small band that had
long been the terror of all peaceable Mexicans within his reach,
and who has frequently had skirmishes with our detachments.
The Colonel, having missed that object, heard that General
Valencia and staff were at a distant hacienda, and by hard
riding in the night, succeeded in capturing that general and a
colonel of his staff, I consider this handsome service, worthy of
being recorded." (Memoirs of Lieut. Gen. Winfield Scott, 1864,
vol. ii, pp. 449, 567, 568.)

He was editor of the Miner's Journal, at one time; and he
established the Anthracite Gazette, at Pottsville, Penn.

He left the Whigs and joined the Democrats, because the
former had opposed the war. Under President Franklin Pierce,
he was Marshal of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. On
retiring from office, he made his home at Valencia, on the line

of the Catawissa Railroad, in the northeasterly comer of Schuyl-
kill County. He bled to death, from a wound in the leg, re-
ceived accidentally from a gun in the hands of an attendant,
while he was hunting birds, to tempt the dehcate appetite of his
wife. His death called forth concurrent testimony to the manli-
ness of his form, the eloquence of his voice, the warmth of his
heart, and his hold on the affections of the public.

The compiler received from him a transcript from the record
of Judge Henr}' Wynkoop [157], which is mentioned elsewhere
