Vessels and Voyages, a manual, D. Van Nostrand, 1886; also,
the Wynkoop Family, a pamphlet, 1866; and the Wynkoop
Genealogy, 1878; and he is the compiler of this work. He wrote
also the Schureman Genealogy, a pamphlet, 1889, published by
Melanchthon F. Schureman; and the Schuremans of New Jersey,

1902, published by himself. Also, the Schuremans of New York,

1903, published by himself. Also, outline genealogies of several
families, which were published in the N. Y. Gen. and Biog. Record

His name, in Dutch, would be Rijkaard, with Rijk as a diminu-

to Dederick, derived from Theodorick. See Judge Dirck [292].
