KING'S (NOW COLUMBIA) COLLEGE, AND ITS EARLIEST
ALUMNI.



By Richard H. Greene.



(Continued from Vol. XXVI., p. 187, of the Recokd.)

Class of 1774.

George Ogilvie, son of Rev. John Ogilvie, a graduate of Yale College
in 1748, who received A.M. from King's in 1767, and S.T.D. from
both Yale and Aberdeen 1770, and Catharine Sims, his wife, and grand-
son of William, youngest son of Sir Walter after Baron Ogilvie of Desk-
ford, Scotland. From 1770 to 1774, when he died, Dr. John Ogilvie
was governor of King's College. We alluded (xxvi. 123) to the
marriage of the father to Margaret Marston, widow of Philip Philipse,
mother of Nathaniel Philipse (King's, 1773), and sister of John Marston
(King's, 1760). The graduate was born in New York City, October 16,
175S. and after graduation was commissioned in the King's New York
Loyalists. After the peace, he went to England with the loyalists, but
returned a few years later, and was ordained deacon in 1787, priest in 1790
was installed rector of Christ Church, New Brunswick, N. J., until 1790,
when he was called to Sf. Paul's, Norwalk, Conn.; here he remained till

1796, and October 26 of that year he was transferred to Christ Church,
Rye, N. Y., where he continued until his death at that place, April 3,

1797, cet. 39. He is described as tall and noble looking; and married,
first, September 4, 1778, Amelia, daughter of Cornelius Willett, of Willets
Point, who bore him two daughters, viz.:

i. Elizabeth Anne, b. July 20, 1779; m. Thomas Belden, of Fair-
held, Conn.; she d. January 16, 1846.

ii. Amelia, b. December 13, 1780; m. Jabez Comstock.

After the death of his wife, March 18, 1781, he married, second, a
daughter of Dr. McWhorter, of Newark, N. J., who left no children.

John Rapalje. — The name spelled thus is all we have in the first cata-
logue, and the last catalogue changes the spelling to Rapelje and adds
nothing but a star to show he is dead, but without date. The spelling of
this name is various, a and e and y and/ being interchanged. The year
this man graduated, one with a similar name appears among the New York
Committee of Correspondence, and the year after as member of the Pro-
vincial Legislature.

He was undoubtedly descended from Joris Jansen de Rapalie and
Catalyn, dau. of Joris Trico of Paris. They had Jan Jorise, Jacob Jorise,
and Jeronemus Jorise and. several daughters.

Jan had Frederick only; Jacob was killed by the Indians ; Jeronemus
had Joris, Tunis, Jan, Jeronimus, and Cornells ; from one of whom the
graduate probably sprang. Tunis had five sons, two of whom went to New
Jersey. The remainder stayed on Long Island at Bedford, Bushwick, and
Crippelbush. Jan had two sons, one lived near the Brooklyn ferry and
one at Flushing. Jeronemus had the oid place on the Wallabout. Cor-
nelis removed from Flatbush to New York, where his children, including
one son, were baptized.



->(y King's College, New York Cily. [Jan.,

There was a John at Newtown, L. I., who was in the British service,
and after the war went to Nova Scotia, where he married Lemma Boice,
who came from New Jersey. They had sons George and Jacob. He
died April 5, 1829.

In the class of 1791, Columbia, George Rapelje was graduated ; he
was born at New York, August 9, 1 77 1, and was admitted to the bar.

GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY NAMED BRASIER, BRASHER,
BRESER, BRESART, BRADEJOR.



By R. H. G.



At the request of descendants of this family living at Hillsboro, Ohio,
I was interested enough to get together the following notes, which are
given as a foundation for some one to build upon. There was a Henry or
Harry Breser in this colony in 1637. A Henry Breser or Bresart of Naz-
ing, Essex, England, came to New England in 1635, about the same time

asjohn Eliot. He or another was in New Haven, Conn., 1639. Accord-
ing to Valentine he patented 33 acres in 1644, near the present Franklin
Square, extending to Wolferts Yalley. He resided man)' years in Smits
Vly — this was the C. J. Clopper estate, between Franklin Square and Wall
Street, usually called Maiden Lane and Pearl, "worth £1,500." In 1643
he settled at Gravesend, L. I., and married, September 9, 1644, Susanna,
widow of William Watkins and daughter of Thomas Spicer of Gravesend,
L. I. She is sometimes called Susanna Thomas. He received a patent
near Brooklyn ferry, August 3, 1651, and bought a house and lot in
Gravesend in 1659. He lived on the East River side of this city, 1657,
and April 17 of that year was admitted a small burgher. He lived on the
south side of Wall Street between Broadway and Pearl in 1674, and in
1676 was assessed for building a new dock and other matters, i2sh, 6d,
on a valuation of £ioo. On Long Island he was called a magistrate.
All the children were baptized in the New York Dutch Church. Valentine
says he left three sons, Abraham, Henry, and Isaac. He died 1691; his
