Dorothea is my 4th maternal Gr-Grandmother through her son John Wesley Mavity (1802-1847).
The last of at least six children born to Michael Jacob and Anna Elizabeth Rhaale (aka Reel) from Palatinate, Germany, Dorothea married John Mavity on 25 Jun 1795 in Franklin Co VA.
The first four of their nine children were born in Franklin Co VA. In 1802, they moved to Shelby Co KY, where the fifth child was born. By 1803, they were living in Montgomery Co KY, where the last four children were born. Dorothea is the mother of six sons and three daughters. Some time in 1826, the family moved to Ripley Co IN.
New information indicates Dorothea and husband John are buried in the Mavity family graveyard located on farmland once belonging to John's father William. This land is located off Old Michigan Rd, near Rexville in Ripley Co IN.
