Some say Sarah's father is Michael Hinkle. This is unlikely, as when he died in 1790 four orphan children were named, and none of them were Sarah.
There is a Sarah Hinkle mentioned in the Rowan County court records on August 7, 1793 :
Ordered that Sarah Hinkle a nase [base] born child, being 3 1/2 Years old be bound apprenticed to Christian Cheek till she attain the age of eighteen years, Master to comply with the Law, &c.
The Sarah mentioned above would have been born in 1790. At this time it is not know if this Sarah is the same as the Sarah that married Abraham Keller.

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 Sarah:
