Jasper County, Indiana

Jasper County is a county located in the U. S. state of Indiana. As of 2010, the population was 33,478; the county seat is Rensselaer. Jasper County is included in IL-IN-WI Metropolitan Statistical Area; the lands of present NW Indiana were explored by French explorer Robert de LaSalle. At that time the area was inhabited by the Miami Confederation of Indians. Through White settlement and confrontation, the various indigenous groups were forced to cede their claim to the area. In October 1818, the Pottawattamies and Delawares ceded their lands west of the Tippecanoe River to the government. In a treaty dated 23 October 1826, the Pottawattamies and Miamis ceded all their lands east of the Tippecanoe. A treaty dated 26 October 1832 with the Pottawattamies ceded control of the northwestern part of Indiana; until the 1832 treaty of 1832, the future Jasper County area was not open to settlement. Northwestern Indiana was less desirable for initial settlement, the land being described as alternate swamps, sterile sand ridges and flat, wet prairies.

It did proliferate in game and settlers found it. The first recorded settler was William Donahue, he was a justice of the peace during the period prior to the county's establishment. Although the settlers were sparse, the state legislature provided for two counties to be established in the area. An act dated 7 February 1835 described the boundaries of Newton and Jasper counties, although their governing structures were not established at that time; the area was attached to White County for civil purposes. In 1836 all the area north of the Kankakee River was partitioned from Jasper as Porter County. By 1837 preparations were being made to create the Jasper County governing structure, with a county commission being elected that year, they first met in January 1838 at the house of Robert Alexander in present-day Benton County. After that, the pro tem county seat was designated as the residence of George W. Spitler, in present-day Iroquois Township, Newton County, where the first meeting was held in March 1839.

The official date of formation of the Jasper County government is given as 15 March 1838. Jasper County was named for Sgt. William Jasper, a famous scout for the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. Jasper became famous in 1776, during the bombardment of Fort Moultrie, for erecting a new flagstaff under fire after the American flag had been shot down. Jasper was killed during the Siege of Savannah in 1779. Jasper County's twin county, Newton County, was named after Jasper's friend and comrade, John Newton. A state legislature act dated 29 January 1839 caused the consolidation of Jasper and Newton, with Jasper retaining the name, Newton being erased, the consolidated area being seated at the Falls of the Iroquois River, with the name of Newton. In 1840 the county of Benton was formed from Jasper's area. In 1859 the county of Newton was revived but with smaller area than before, leaving Jasper in its present form; as early as 1825, the majority of the population were against slavery.

By the time of the War, Jasper County was one of the few counties of Indiana that had a military organization under the law of 1855. The war affected Jasper County when 935 soldiers were enlisted on behalf of the Union; this was considered an impressive amount at the time with the average population around 5,000. Although there were several companies from Indiana, the 9th Indiana Infantry Regiment produced Robert H. Milroy, the "Gray Eagle of the Army". Milroy became famous for suppressing Confederate mountain rangers, which caused the Confederate Congress to declare a $100,000 bounty on his head; the 9th Indiana Infantry Regiment became known for its involvement in the Battle of Philippi, one of the earliest battles of the Civil War at Laurel Hill. In comparing the proportions of men able to fight, Indiana contributed more soldiers than any other state to the Union. According to the 2010 census, the county has a total area of 561.39 square miles, of which 559.62 square miles is land and 1.76 square miles is water.

Until the middle of the 19th century when it was drained to make farmland, this county was part of the 2nd largest freshwater wetland in the US, with abundant flora and fauna. This is caused by the Iroquois River, one of the main tributaries of the Kankakee River that flows throughout Jasper County, a major water source for the area.

Epineurium

The epineurium is the outermost layer of dense irregular connective tissue surrounding a peripheral nerve. It surrounds multiple nerve fascicles as well as blood vessels which supply the nerve. Smaller branches of these blood vessels penetrate into the perineurium. In addition to blood vessels which supply the nerve and fibroblasts are present and contribute to the production of collagen fibers that form the backbone of the epineurium. In addition to providing structural support and fibroblasts play a vital role in maintenance and repair of the surrounding tissues; when the spinal nerve leaves the vertebral canal via an intervertebral foramen, two layers of the spinal meninges, the arachnoid and the dura invaginate the nerve to form a dural sleeve of connective tissue, the epineurium. The outer portion of this sleeve comprises the external epineurium which permits longitudinal nerve excursion and absorption of longitudinal stress; the layer of the epineurium that extends within the nerve to define the fascicles is termed the internal epineurium.

Together, these two layers form the epineurium, which varies in thickness along the course of a nerve. The epineurium is most abundant around joints, as its function is to protect the nerves from stretching and subsequent injury. A common surgical procedure to repair a torn nerve via the epineurium is termed an epineurial repair.

Senwabarwana

Senwabarwana is a town in the Blouberg Local Municipality of the Capricorn District Municipality in the Limpopo province of South Africa. The town is the seat of the Blouberg Local Municipality, it is located about 93 km northwest on the route to Doringpad. The colonial name may refer to the German industrial city of Bochum or be a corruption of Bochim, a biblical name; the place was named by the German missionary Carl Franz and his wife Helene to a mission station they established there in 1890. The majority language group of the area, Northern Sotho peopleand they refer themselves as Bahananwa, call the town Senwabarwana, a commemorative name for an incident that took place in a pond where the Khoi people found and drank water in their travelling, thus passing by. Due to their height they are proclaimed dwarf by natives which means Morwana in Northern Sotho and in a plural form is Barwana, hence Senwabarwana". German missionary Carl Franz and his wife Helene founded a hospital that used to cater for people with leprosy.

The missionary station was part of the attempts of the Berlin Missionary Society to christianize Southern Africa in the 19th century. The hospital is now known as Helene-Franz hospital, it has a bad reputation because of its high mortality rates stats and it is referred by old people as "the hospital of death". The hospital offers basic primary health care; the town grew around the hospital, founded by a strong black businessman named Mr. Stanley Thema, who started the first building in the area and expanded to businesses. Bochum is now one of the fastest-growing rural towns in the world; the place is known for its diverse people from chieftaincies such as Ga-Manthata, Ga-Matlala, Ga-Mmalebogo, Moletši and the small town of Mogwadi.
