Looking for any information about wife and children of the above.  As far as I know, he was married to a ZACHARIA SOPHIA JACOBA KOCH (widow BESTER).

My cousin Dr Jordaan Potgieter did a documentry on the Potgieters.  I've search his documents - but I think these dates and names you have might not be correct ...


I found these entries that might be more or less what you look for - perhaps if you have birth and death places - I can search the document some more ...

I am a direct descendant of Zacharia Sophia Jacoba Koch and Casper Jacobus Bester.  I did not know that she was married for a second time, and would be very interested in any information you have about her.
