Van Sickle Towns in the United States
Posted by: L. Glenn Van Syckle Date: February 22, 2002 at 11:46:15
  of 1585

Can anyone provide a brief history, regarding the town of "Van Syckel", Hunterdon County, New Jersey, location is 4038'59"N 7458'15"W, elevation is 300 feet, was named in the year 1941; or the town of "Van Syckles", Sussex County, New Jersey, location is 4116'15"N 7434'42"W, elevation is 640 feet, or "Vansycle Canyon", Umatilla County, Oregon, location is 4556'53"N 11843'19"W, elevation is 1,419 feet? The Vansycle Canyon, also spelled Vansyckle, opens into the Walla Walla Valley, east of Wallula. It's post office operated from 1882 to 1890. There is also a town of "Sicklerville" in NJ.

Any background information on freebooter and pirate, Jan Janse Van Haarlem (b. 1588 Netherlands), his son, Anthony Jansen Van Salee or Van Fez (b. 1607 and arrived in New Netherlands in 1633), or his daughter, Eva Van Salee, whose husband was Ferdenandus Van Sycklin, the progenitor of all the Van Sickle's in the U.S.?

Lastly, any background information on Samuel Van Syckle ( for related story) and America's first successful petroleum pipeline?

Thank you. Glenn Van Syckle and Family
