[DR: I'm pretty confident the last witness was in face Dorothea Kneppel, the step-daughter of Jan Elsevier by virtue of his marriage to Margaretha Vogt, who was previously married to Johann Martinus Kneppel aka Knùppel, whose only daughter was Dorothea. It seems the scribe repeated Kornelia in error.]
