Dorothea was the daughter of Henry Boll and Magdalena Peier, both of whom were born in Switzerland.

According to her obituary, she came to the United States in 1856 and arrived in Dallas on May 30. Dorothea was "a member of the old French colony which landed at Galveston, whose male members walked to Dallas, and who settled the old French town west of the city on the Heights."

According to researcher James Pratt, Dorothea and her husband donated land for the T&P railroad right-of-way pass through Dallas in 1872.

Dorothea married Jacob shortly after her arrival. They were married in the house of Judge J. M. Patterson. Jacob owned a meat market in downtown Dallas.

Dorothea was a member of the German Lutheran Church and active in its work. A photograph of Dorothea was published in The Dallas Morning News on May 31, 1906, and another one on April 7, 1912.

Note: Dorothea's uncle John Peier, a blacksmith and woodworker, is also buried in Greenwood. His Find A Grave number is 68171208.
