Ohio reader discovers Columbia author Albert Wyckoff's books

Related: Adair County authors: Albert C. Wyckoff, by Mike Watson, contains a comprehensive list of the books written by Rev. Albert Capwell Wyckoff

Scott Brenneman writes:
I found a couple of Mercer Boy's books in my Dadís book collection. I do not know how he came about these, but I have really enjoyed them and have added a couple of the Mystery Hunters books to my collection. These books are well written and I really feel I am there inside the stories. Wish authors today would put out suitable books like these for youth. Sincerely, Scott Brenneman, Mount Vernon OH
Thanks, Scott, for writing. Adair County is proud of having been the home of Rev. Wyckoff for many years. Though he did not write any of the Mercer Boys works in Columbia, he continue his authorship here while pastor of the Columbia Presbyterian Church, and the Union Presbyterian Church (in a sanctuary now the home of Living by Faith Church). He and his wife are buried in the Columbia Cemetery.
