Ed and Lona were shown in the 1910 census living in the household of Ed's parents in McLean County, Illinois.19  

Lona ran a small restaurant in Crosby, North Dakota.  Ed had moved from Rankin, Illinois to Crosby, North Dakota in persuit of his occupation as a barber.  Lona and others had been attracted to the barbershop where a group of men gathered and sang four-part harmony.  Here she met the leader of some very early barbershop singing, a young barber named Ed Hinshaw.  Apparently he arrived in Crosby while she was still spending time on her homestead where, as she said, she had no weapon for protection better than a lath.  Ed gave her a small pearl-handle revolver for protection.16  

In the spring of 1913 the family moved to Westby, Montana, where Ed opened a barbershop.  They were among the early pioneers of that town.16  Westby as yet had no school, so daughter Eva had to remain behind in Crosby with Lona's mother Minnie (by then Minnie Hering) to attend school.  Through his barber customers, Ed took a rough poll of the children needing schooling in Westby.  Lona then corresponded with county officials in Plentywood, and thus it was through Ed and Lona's efforts that Westby's first two-room schoolhouse was built, ready by the time daughter Mildred started in September of 1914.16

In 1918, with the barber business ruined due to most of the young customers being off to war, another wheat crop failure because of drought, and Edís poor health, the family moved back to Illinois to live with his mother near Danvers.16
