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 [1]:

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.
