Try the following website. My father's mother's family came from Groningen. I've been doing a lot of research. I use the Allegroningers website since it is strictly documentation for the province of Groningen and if I have no success there I go to the WieWasWie website. The allegroningers website is nice because you can do a two person search.

I entered Jacob Dijkstra and then Doornbos as the second person. This is what I came up with. I believe this is who you are looking for. I open a Dutch to English translator to help with this website but I'm getting used to the basic Dutch words now. This is their wedding document. As you can see it gives a lot of information.
