Family


1. Frederick Anton Leopold Wilklow was born about 1737 in Germany. Frederick's marriage record says he was "of Hanover" but more possible is that he was born in the Principality of Lippe. In the 1730s and 1740s the Wilkenloh families in Germany lived in the area of Germany that is on the map, below. Fred probably also came from this area but no proof has been found. Many of the older records from the New Paltz Dutch Reformed Church have the name spelled "Wilkenloh" as in Germany. He died after 1790 in Ulster Co., NY.

Isaac never married. He, along with many others, bought the school lot in Lloyd in 1804. There is a legal notice of his death in the Albany Evening Journal on 19 May 1859. This legal notice includes a very long list of heirs which is very helpful in putting together the early generations of the family.
