About Margaret Rapier (Thompson)

"SETTLEMENTS IN AND NEAR BARDSTOWN.

The first arrival of emigrants direct from Maryland was certainly in 1776. In that year came Capt. James Rapier, with his sons, Charles and William Rapier, both grown or nearly so, who settled on lands a few miles southeast of Bardstown, on the Beach Fork of Salt river, and in a district of country known at the time and since as Poplar Neck.

The Captain Rapier referred to above did not bear any exalted reputation for practical religion. His wife, however, was a woman of strong faith and fervent piety. To the present day her memory is venerated by her numerous descendants. Charles and William Rapier, whom I remember well, were good citizens artd pious Catholics."
