About Cornelia Margaretha van Eeden, b5c4d1

NOTE: Cornelia Margaretha van Zyl was previously linked to an incorrect Frederik Jacobus van Eeden on (based on erroneous information contained in GISA's SAG Vol. 17), leading to much confusion and incorrect numbering. Please note that the her and her husband's Death Notices now indicate identical children.
