Walhalla and German Colonization Society of Charleston

Classification: Query
Surnames: Hinkle, Henckel
Looking for other descendants of the Hinkle/Henckel Family from Western South Carolina, Pendleton and Walhalla area. My GGG grandmother Sarah "Sallie" Hinkle, wife of George Asa Bradley Jr. was born in Western SC in 1784 and is described as a "Dutch" or Deutsch [German] girl. I want to see if there is a connection to John C. Henckel of the German Colonization society of Charleston. "Walhalla began as a settlement of German immigrants who left from Hamburg, Germany and Bavaria with some English, Scots and Irish who came over in the same ship. In particular, General John A. Wagener, Claus Bullwinkel, John C. Henckel, Jacob Schroder, and Christopher F. Seeba (trustees of the German Colonization Society of Charleston) bought 17,859 acres (72.27 km2) of land for $27,000 from Reverend Joseph Grisham of West Union on December 24, 1849."
