QUERIES.

Brinkerhoff — In Vols. 37-38 of Record it is stated that Joris Brincker-
hoff married Annetie, daughter of Teunis Jans Coevers who died June 11, 1750,
and had Hans, Lucas, Marrits, Maritje, Aeltie, Sarah, Annetie. In the Brinck-
erfwff Genealogy, published by Richard Brinkerhoff in 1887, p. 76, it is stated
that the wife oi Joris was Annetie, dan. of Teunis Gysbert Bogaert, with the
same date for her death. The children given are: Sarah, Susannah, Abraham,
Teunis, Isaac, Aeltie, Joris, Neeltie, Hendrick, Antie. So far as 1 can see the
known facts favor the latter statement, but perhaps this has all been worked
out by some one, and if so I should be glad to be set right.

Rapalje— In the Rapalje line as usually given there appears to be a gen-
eration skipped and I have never seen any comment upon this fact, although I
have seen it bridged in an extraordinary way by the insertion of the marriage
of Breckje, daughter of Gaspard Colet de Rapalje to Victor Honorious Janssen.
As given it makes Abram born in 1569 the son of Gaspard Colet born 1505.
Can any one give the missing link ?
