SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Joris Jansen Rapelje

Joris Jansen Rapelje was a member of the Council of Twelve Men in the Dutch West India Company colony of New Netherland. He and his wife Catalina Trico were among the earliest settlers in New Netherland. Joris Rapelje and Catalina Trico were married 21 January 1624, at the Walloon Church of Amsterdam. Rapelje, an illiterate 19-year-old textile worker whose origin was noted in the registry as'Valencenne', his 18-year-bride, had no family present to witness the ceremony. Four days on 25 January, the couple departed from Amsterdam, bound for North America, they were traveling aboard the first ships to bring workers to New Netherland. The Rapalje family were first employed at Fort Orange, in what would become Albany, New York. Fort Orange was being erected by the Dutch West India Company as a trading post on the west bank of the Hudson River, it became the company's official outpost in the upper Hudson Valley. The families aboard these ships were principally Walloons, French-speaking residents of Valenciennes, Roubaix and related sites, now in Belgium’s province of Wallonia and France's region of Nord-Pas-de-Calais, but part of the Spanish Netherlands.

By 1626, Dutch authorities had relocated most settlers from Fort Orange to Fort Amsterdam at the southern end of Manhattan Island. The Rapeljes established a residence near the East River, were among the earliest purchasers of land in Manhattan building two houses on Pearl Street near the Fort. In 1637, Rapalje purchased about 335 acres around Wallabout Bay in, his son-in-law Hans Hansen Bergen acquired a large tract adjoining Rapelje's tract. Today the land is the Brooklyn Navy Yard. In 1641, Rapalje was one of the Council of Twelve Men representing Manhattan and Pavonia. From 1655 through 1660, he was a magistrate of Brooklyn, he died in New Netherland. Joris Jansen Rapelje and Catalina Trico were the parents of 11 children, including Sarah Rapelje, the first child of European parentage born in New Netherland. Sarah Rapelje's chair is in the collection of the Museum of the City of New York, is thought to have been brought to New Netherland by the family, their daughter Annetje married Martin Ryerson.

Their daughter Jannetje married another Vanderbeek. Because of the number of their descendants, author Russell Shorto has called Joris Jansen and his wife Catalina "the Adam and Eve" of New Netherland as the number of their descendants has been estimated at about a million. Brooklyn's Rapelye Street is named for the family; the spelling of the Rapelje family name varied over the years to include Rapelye, Rapareilliet, Raparlié, Raplee, Rapeleye, Rappleyea as well as others. Rapelje, Montana is named for a family descendant. Another family descendant, Capt. Daniel Rapelje, founded the settlement which became St. Thomas, Ontario.

Delphi's school board voted to leave the HAC after 2015-16 in November 2015; the school refused to honor the football contracts for 2016-17, so the HAC decided to remove the school from the league effective on December 17, 2015. Since the departure happened in the middle of the school year instead of during the summer, the exit date is listed as 2016, since the school completed the fall season sports as conference members.

Morava, Kočevje

Morava is a village in the Municipality of Kočevje in southern Slovenia. It was a village settled by Gottschee Germans. During the Second World War its original population was expelled; the area is part of the traditional region of Lower Carniola and is now included in the Southeast Slovenia Statistical Region. It includes the former hamlet of Mošenik. Morava was attested in written records in 1498 as Hemoraw, it is believed to be derived from the archaic Slovene common noun *morava' meadow'. Locally, the village is known as Omrava; the village was known as Mrauen in German in the past. The local church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, was a Late Gothic building. A church stood at the site at least as early as 1674, based on the date carved into the door casing. A 1753 visitation report is the first written mention of a church in the village; the church was a single-nave structure with a flat ceiling and a narrower barrel-vaulted octagonal chancel walled on five sides. There was an open portico in front of the entrance.

The church was renovated in 1896, remodeled and extended in 1902, when a bell tower with a clock was added, replacing the shingled bell-gable and serving as an entry vestibule. After the Second World War, the church continued to serve as the parish church for the Parish of Kočevska Reka; the church was dynamited in 1955 and the ruins were razed in 1956.
