|Catharina Coopman 1
born circa 1698, at the Cape 2
| I believe she is in all probability a daughter of this Coopman family|
(I have been able to trace no other family of that name at this time).
The evidence is slim but I find it convincing.
In the Muster Roll of 1719 she is listed with ther husband:
Symon Pietersz Plooy & Catharina Bartholomeus. She was
also a witness at the baptism of Catrijn Zaaijman, daughter
of Anna Maria Coopman, on 22 October 1719. Being witness
at a baptism was an honour, and usually accorded to members
of the family.
She herself did not, apparently, have any of her family as
baptismal witnesses for her own children.
