I'm descended from Abraham E Hinkle (my 4th great grandfather) through his son Kaleb who married Ellen/Elleanor/Nellie Sites. Then their son Jacob married Caroline Trumbo. My great grandfather was George Edward Hinkle who married Stella Sophia Sigler, and their daughter (my grandma) Mildred Irene married LeRoy Lester Hartman.
I'm told this Hinkle line is traced and published, but I haven't had an opportunity to read that book. I'd love to get a copy of it, but will check the local library to see if I can find it there.
I haven't said so lately but welcome to all the new members! Please tell us about your Hinkle connection. Thanks!

Just as an update to the group. Jane Hinkle and I have been working together since we found each other on this board. Through DNA testing we have found that our common ancestor, Anthony Hinkle (1810-1893), is a descendant of Rev. Anthony Hinkle of Germantown, PA. We believe that our Anthony's father was Michael Hinkle who was supposedly killed in a horse riding accident around 1814. Michael's young widow remarried and we believe his children were mostly shipped out to other relatives, apprenticeships, whatever. They seem to have ended up scattered and no longer in touch. There are 4, including our Anthony, that are now known. They may account for all 4 children on the 1810 census for Michael Hinkle's family in Pulaski County, KY or there may be other children. We cannot tell if Anthony, who was born <1 week after the enumeration of the census, was counted on that census or not.
Where Jane and I are stuck is that we can find no records of Anthony up until his marriage in 1831 in Lincoln county, Kentucky. We next found him in 1841 remarrying in neighboring Garrard county, KY. His first wife had died leaving him with 3 small children. Not found again until the 1850 census at which point he is living in Arkansas. So our mystery is who took him in as a child and raised him? Where is he on the 1830 and 1840 census? Since he is not found as head of household, who is he living with? How does an half-orphaned child obtain a decent education and become a doctor?
What does the D. W. stand for? Are the Daniel and Mary he is found with later his parents?
