Apologies . . . I never meant to sow confusion. I only included the
name in parenthesis to be clear about which Catharina I was referring to
and should have made it clear that *if* (not when) the name is found in
the record anywhere then the connection I mentioned might be considered
in looking for an explanation.

This is not a family I have researched. My source is an as yet
unpublished manuscript I have been editing (not fact checking) and the
name is used so frequently in the manuscript I assumed it was in common
use. A quick search does not reveal a source. In any event I will
bring it to the author's attention for sourcing.
