Henry was born in 1746, in Germaintown Pennsylvania. He married first to Catherine Losh, daughter of George Losh, ad they were the parents of six children. Henry married a second time to Dorothea Nagel and they had two children. He passed away about 1839 in Union County, Illinois.[1]

Henry Hinkle first appeared as one of the minor children of Jacob Anthony Hinkle when he joined in the petition, September 5, 1753 for the appointment of a guardian to protect his the final settlement he received his one-ninth portion of the estate.

He moved to Rowan County, North Carolina where he entered land on Abbotts Creek for which he received a grant, October 25, 1786 of 200 acres. He deeded this land March 9,1792 to George Hinkle (son of Anthony Hinkle III) and it was presumed he left this locality about this time for an unknown destination in the west.

Henry Hinkle served as a "waggoner" in the Revolutionary War and was placed in charge of wagons hauling ammunition and supplies between Philadelphia and the Carolina's.

Captain Henry Hinkle probably left North Carolina with the other Hinkle's about the year of 1808.

Research Notes

The Y-DNA test results from my cousin, Albert Hinkle-1107, show that our 3rd great-grandfather, Christopher Hinkle-1032 is NOT a descendant of the Rev. Anthony Jacob Henckel, 1668-1728.

They did, however, show a genetic connection to three other colonial era Hinkle families. The FTDNA Y-DNA tests connect Christopher Hinkle with two people whose line goes back to Philip Hinckel born 1724 Germany, immigrated in 1749 and died in 1793 in PA.

They also connect us to two "cousins" who have traced their line back to Henry Hinkle-228 (this profile) who died in Union Co, IL. These are all haplogroup R-M269 and a genetic distance of 0.

A third match shows our Christopher is closely related to Joseph Hinkle-409, born 1761 in New Jersey and killed by Indians in 1793 at Covalt Station near present day Cincinnati, Ohio.

Stacy Krout provides the date and place of death as: 1812 in Germantown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
