Seeking info for Myra RAPELJE who married William Baker COMSTOCK in Flint, MI in 1875. She was born in St. Thomas, Ontario in 1844. CANNOT FIND ANY RECORD OF HER PARENTS, Barclay Lambert RAPELJE b. circa 1819 in St. Thomas and Nancy THAYER of Elgin County, Ontario.

I live in St. Thomas and am related to the Rapelje family. I am just beginning my research. However, I came across some info that might help you. Barclay Rapelje belonged to the St. Thomas Troop - Calvary.
He was known as Bark Rapelje and was a Sargeant. As far as my info goes he joined the Calvary in 1938, but had some involvement in the rebellion of 1937?. All the info I can across only states that this couple had a family and he died near St. Thomas.
May I suggest that you contact the office of the Elgin Regiment here in St. Thomas. They
may have records of Barclay that could be of great help to you.

Daniel Elizabeth Rapelje had a son by the name of Lambert, but died Dec. 25th, 1819 at the age of 15.

Hope this helps!

Would like information on Rapelje family. Been told my family traces from Daniel. My grandfather was Gerald Rapelje who passed away in 1986, Pontiac, MI. Have heard that the family went from France to Denmark to Canada and were wine makers. Please advise of any info you may have.

Hello David
Was your gr. grandfather Hirum a twin of Herman? My father's step father was George Barclay oldest brother of Hirum and Herman. I am in contact with Preston Rapelje, a grand son of Herman and Maxine a grand daughter of George Barclay. I can out you in contact with them if you are interested. I also have a copy of a picture of their sister, Rose, who married Irv Larkin. When my grandpa, to the children in our family he was grandpa, George died in 1952, Gerald was the minister at the funeral.

My name is Cameron Bryant, and I am researching the Rapelje family in St. Thomas for my neighbour, Robert Rapelje. He is a direct descendent of Daniel Rapelje, who settled St. Thomas. I was wondering if you had
information on Daniel's connection back to New York, and possibly beyond that. I think they are from France, but I am not sure. Anything you could provide for me would be much appreciated.
