(1st), Adriaentje Bleyck, daughter of Cornelis De Potter, and widow of Johannes Nevius." This statement has been the souirce of most information on this marriage and on Adriaentje's parentage. In fact, later research has shown, Adriaentje was the step-daughter of De Potter. Dobson says in NYGBR (129:161) " In 1874, Edmund B. O’Callaghan, operating on information supplied by Teunis G. Bergen, published a brief note in which he stated that Adriaentje was a daughter of Swaentje Jans and Cornelis de Potter, and this claim has been repeated in innumerable later works."
