About Cornelia Potgieter, b7 SM

In the interim, whilst waiting for the improved data field layout Geni is working on, I am adding all married names in the last name field, listing them in order of the marriages. I am doing this on profiles which I am coming across in the normal run of my work on Geni - I am not actively searching these circumstances out.

I have removed Jacob Kruger SV/PROG and Isaac van Ess as husbands of Cornelia Botha b7. I can find no reference to her being married to these men. If there is such evidence I would be happy to learn about it and see sources supporting the information. CJB
