Mother was a Parisian who came here with the first Dutch in 1624.

A great-great-great-granddaughter of Sarah's by her first husband, Hans, married a great-grandson by her second husband, Ghysbert. (The woman in question was also named Sarah Rapalje; the man she married was Isaac Bogart Sr.) The link was discovered by Alice Holliday, a great-great-great-granddaughter of the couple. (See Alice's page for further notes.)
