Issac Hinshaw, one of the oldest pioneers of Klickitat county, a carpenter by trade, although he now follows gardening, a fitting occupation for an old man, was born in Chatham county, North Carolina, in the year 1831, making him now seventy-three. He is the son of Benjamin and Mary E. (Lawrence) Hinshaw. His father, who was likewise a native of North Carolina and born in 1804, was of English descent. He died at the age of thirty-six. Our subject's mother passed most of her life in North Carolina, where she was married and where she brought up her family. She died ten years after her husband passed away. Our subject received his education in the common schools of his native state, remaining at home until he was eighteen years old, when he took up the carpenter's trade. He worked as an apprentice for two years. In 1850 he migrated to Morgan county, Indiana, and for the ensuing seventeen years he followed his trade in various parts of the county. Removing to Douglas county, Kansas, in 1867, he followed farming in that locality for eight years, then in the winter of 1875 moved to California, settling eventually in Sonoma county. In 1877, he again moved, this time to Washington. After he spent six months in Ellensburg he came to Klickitat county and settled on a piece of railroad land. This was in the fall of 1877, and in November of the same year his family came to stay with him. From that time until 1893 he gave himself energetically to the cultivation and improvement of this land, then, however, he moved into Goldendale, where he has since lived, following gardening as an occupation.
In Indiana, on the 20th of April, 1856, Mr. Hinshaw married Elizabeth M. Hadley a native of North Carolina, daughter of John L. and Elizabeth (Bray) Hadley. Her father, who was of English descent, but a native of North Carolina, born in 1809, was a farmer by occupation. He moved to Indiana in the early days and settled in Hendricks county, whence, in 1855, he removed to Iowa, in which state he died some years afterward. Mrs. Hinshaw's mother was likewise of English descent, a North Carolinian by birth, the junior by three years of her husband. She passed away when Mrs. Hinshaw was but a few weeks old. Mrs. Hinshaw was born on the 8th of February, 1837. She was educated in the public schools of Indiana. Married at the age of nineteen, she became the mother of nine children, of whom all are living but one, Eldon S., who was born in Indiana on independence Day, 1865, and died at the age of sixteen. The other children are: Tunis T., born in Indiana, May 3, 1857; Vernon T., born in the Hoosier state April 1, 1859; Elmer E., born in Indiana August 18, 1861; Mrs. Mary E, Chapman, born in Indiana on the 11th of July, 1862, now living in Goldendale; Mrs. Ora A. White, born in Kansas, June 20, 1867, now in Newberg, Oregon; Mrs. Laura A. Wright, born in Kansas, March 16, 1874, also a resident of Newberg; Mrs. Ella G. Lee, born in Kansas on the 14th of July, 1869, now in Goldendale; and Ida H., born in Klickitat county, September 11, 1878, residing at home with her parents and engaged in teaching music. In religion, Mrs. Hinshaw is a Free Methodist, while Mr. Hinshaw is a Quaker. In politics, he is a Prohibitionist. Some time after moving to Goldendale from his ranch, he disposed of the property. Mr. Hinshaw is a very pleasant old gentleman, greatly respected by his many friends in the city and by very many in all parts of the county, for, being an old pioneer, he enjoys a wide acquaintance.

In the late summer of 1877 a 46-year-old North Carolina carpenter named Isaac Hinshaw arrived in Klickitat County looking for land to farm. He liked what he saw and bought a piece of railroad land located 1 1/4 miles south of Golden-dale. By November of that year his family - wife Elizabeth; four sons, Tunis, Vernon, Elmer and Eldon; and four daughters, Mary, Ora, Ella, and Laura, were settled on the newly-acquired farm. A year later a fifth daughter, Ida, was born. For Isaac Hinshaw and his North Carolina-born bride of 21 years - Elizabeth (Hadley) - Golden-dale was the end of a migration that began with the Civil War.
A devout Quaker and already the father of three children, Isaac Hinshaw was excused from military service for religious reasons. Though a southerner by birth he was against slavery and sympathetic to the Union cause. Supporting that statement is the fact that his third son, born in Indiana Aug. 18, 1861, was named Elmer Ellsworth after a Col. Elmer Ellsworth, the first Union Army officer killed in the War Between the States. Colonel Ellsworth, who had worked in Abraham Lincoln's Illinois law office was shot while removing a Confederate flag from a rooftop in Alexandria, Va. in May 1861.
The Isaac Hinshaw family left Indiana for Kansas in 1867, moved to Santa Rosa, Calif. in 1875 and two years later to Washington Territory. During the next several decades all the Hinshaw children were actively involved In Klickitat county's development. Three of the daughters, Ora, Ella and Laura, were pioneer teachers in the one-room country schools around Goldendale. Another daughter, Ida, taught music. The oldest daughter, Mary, became the wife of Arthur Chapman, an early-day Goldendale businessman and community leader.
Three Hinshaw sons - Tunis, Vernon and Elmer - operated farms adjacent to their father's property in the Number Two school district. Two of the Hinshaw sons, Tunis and Elmer, and two daughters, Mary and Ella (Mrs. Homer Lee), spent their lives in the county. One son, Eldon, died at the age of 16. The other son, Vernon, later moved to Newberg, Ore. as did his sister Ora (Mrs. Everett White). Another daughter, Laura (Mrs. Edson Wright), lived in Portland. Her son, the late Dean Wright, was a distinguished Oregon architect.
