Family History :  
Family Genealogy : I enjoyed the article about the Wyckoff house in New York City.  The name rang a bell and I went to my 15 generation chart.  Although I am still proving my connections to Rulof Rulofson, Loyalist who settled in New Brunswick it appears that he is related to Pieter Wyckoff.  Pieter Wyckoff married Grietje Cornelis Van Ness.  Their daughter Annetje Wyckoff married Roelof Martense Schenck.  Their daughter Margaretta married Cornelis Van Kouwen Hoven.  Their daughter Annetje married Abraham Van Horne (ancestor of the Canadian railway builder William Van Horne).  Their daughter Margaretta married Hermanes Abraham Rulofson.  Their son is Rulof Rulofson.
