How Kommertje Bos descends from 17th-century Commertje Bastiaans

On my father's side of the family I had a great-aunt named Kommertje Bos, which is a bit of an unusual name. She was named after her maternal grandmother, Kommertje Hoek (1812-1859). As was usual within large families, Kommertje Hoek had several granddaughters and great-granddaughters named after her. Among them was another Kommertje Bos (1910-2000), who was known as “Ko Kuip” due to her marriage to Jan Kuiper (1909-1967). That Kommertje's father was Jacob “Jaap” Bos (1878-1944), son of Cent Bos (1845-1917), a brother of my great-grandfather Teunis Bos (1853-1923).
This Teunis Bos was the father of the Kommertje Bos of this post. Kommertje was married in 1913to Cornelis (“Cees”) Boer and had sons named Leendert (2x), Teunis, Aart and Cornelis. Kommertje's younger sister Willempje (“Wim”) Bos (1897-1982) married Cornelis' brother Meeuwis Boer (1890-1959) in 1925. That's a great-aunt I can still remember.
