Hello Rose,
> there does not seem to be any connection
> between the two names.

maybe these mothers both rather had two given names: Charlotta plus Dorothea.
"Thea" is an abbreviation of Dorothea. Thekla may be the younger (little) Dorothea (doughter of Thea?).
Many females called Ros´ at home, are written Rosalia or Rosina in the records. Just depending on the writers mood or "awareness" (after drinking too many "Schnaps´").Writers did!!!!!!!! make mistakes.

Best whishes,

Reiner (Kerp)
