Jacob E. Wyke, the E. is for Ellsworth is my grandfather. He was born in 1862 and died in 1951. He was a civil war orphan, and was put into boarding school in Penn. I have all of his papers from the time he enlisted until he was commissioned. He served with Teddy Roosevelt and was Gen Perishings aide de camp. He is buried next to Pershing at the Presido in California. He married Helen Godfrey. Is this the same man you are looking for?

Jacob E. Wyke was my paternal gr gr uncle. Bryan is my nephew and was looking for information on Jacob Wyke/Wike (Jacob E.'s father) his gr gr gr granfather who was killed in the Civil War. I believe Bryan has a new email address. I will forward your message on to him. I would appreciate any information that you could share with me on Jacob E. I did see him listed along with one of his brothers in a Civil War Veterns' Orphan School in PA in , I believe, the 1870 Federal Census.

I guess this makes us cousins

I am Jacob Ellsworth Wyke's grandson. When he married Helen Godfrey, one of their children was Jack, born in 1911, he was my father. Jacob was 50 when Jack was born. I was born in 1951 when my dad was 40. I have all of Jacobs photos and orginal war documents. He is buried in the Presido, beside Gen Pershing...and there is a reason why. I believe my Dad used his middle name of van to the last name when he married a Van Loben Sels.

It's correct that Jacob Ellsworth Wyke is buried in the San Francisco National Cemetery in the Presidio of San Francisco. (see http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=32...) However, General Pershing is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Check the VA Gravesite locator.

New information (from the 1920 Federal Census) indicates that Jack van Wyke (son of Jacob E. Wyke) was actually born in 1902. It is not known why his birthdate was altered at some point but was thought by his family to have been born in 1911/1912.
