Both Maria Magdalena and her husband, Henry (Heinrich), are buried in the family cemetery, the first burial ground set aside in Jefferson Township on land belonging to Henry Arney, Sr. It was this Henry Arney, Sr., who traveled from North Carolina to Jefferson Township in 1820 and located not far from where Lick Creek enters the Eel River. He was one of this area's earliest settlers, along with Adam Fiscus, Hieronymous Speas, William Boyles and John Stokely. In 1824 most of them had moved a bit farther north and east. In 1825 a meeting was held at his home and a church, Dutch Bethel Christian Church, was organized. Among those men serving as officers of the church were Obidiah Winters, and Henry's son, John Arney, who served as Elders; Charles Inman, along with Henry's son, Andrew Arney, served as Deacons.
Carmichael history says their descendants are in Greene and Owen County, Indiana. She is not listed in the Heritage volume from which I got most of Andreas and Catharina's children.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Maria by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Maria:
