Sophia was born in 1785 according to census records' estimates.

DNA analysis of her descendants indicate that she may have actually been Sindhi from India. In the 1840 census, it's stated that she is from Louisiana. In the 1850 census, it's stated that she's from Virginia, but that word is illegible. It is not unusual for census takers to erroneously assume that someone of color may be mulatto.
