Obit taken from the 01/16/1953 edition of "The Lebanon Enterprise" from Lebanon, Kentucky

Friends here were grieved to learn of the sudden death early Saturday of the Rev. Albert Capwell Wyckoff, pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Columbia. Though he had been under a doctor's care for high blood pressure in recent months, he had gone about his duties as usual. The fatal attack came late in the night, and he passed away only a short time later.

Mr. Wyckoff, who was widely known in church circles in this area, in 1930 & 1931 was located in Lebanon as a Sunday School missionary under the Board of National Missions of the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A. This was a post he filled in the mountains of Kentucky & Arkansas for 12 years. Later, he was for two years superintendent of home missions in Transylvania Presbytery under U.S. & U.S.A. boards. He served four years as a pastor of Madisonville Presbyterian Church, & would have been at Columbia five years in April, this year.

Mr. Wyckoff also was the author of 31 books, including two series of boys' books & several novels. Both he & his wife, Mrs. Edna May DeKyne Wyckoff, were active in young people's work & in community affairs.

He was a native of Elizabeth, N.J.

His wife survives. Also surviving are two daughters, Miss Dorothy Wyckoff of Louisville, who was born in Lebanon, while the family resided here, & Mrs. Robert Chapman, Jr., of Columbia; one granddaughter, & a brother & sister, both of Newark, |N.J.

Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Columbia church by Dr. George S. Watson of Louisville, assisted by the Rev. Joe T. Sudduth of Campbellsville. Burial was in the cemetery at Columbia.
