He married Susan -.1  Susan was born about 1792, Virginia.1  

Susan, apparently widowed,3 was shown in the 1870 census (Aug 2 1870), living with [son] William in Clay County, West Virginia,1

Hanshaw, William H., age 21, born in Virginia; farm laborer.
Hanshaw, Susan, age 78, born in Virginia; keeping house.
Living nearby in 1870 was the family of Francis Hanshaw.4  

Note: the 1870 census did not record the relationships of people within a household, so it is not certain how William and Susan were related.  But because of the approximately 57 year age difference it is assumed that Susan was not William's wife, and was probably his mother5 (or perhaps might have been his grandmother).5
