He married Jane Kern, Jan 22 1846, Wayne County, Indiana.8,9  (Indexed as Hezekiah Henshaw & Jane Kern in one marriage index,8 and Hezekiah Kinshaw & Jane Kem in another marriage index).9  

Jane might have died sometime before 1850 as Hezekiah was shown living separately in the 1850 census.1  However it's possible they were divorced/separated before 1850, as an unidentified Mary Henshaw was shown in the 1850 census living in the household of a Joseph Kern in Wayne County, Indiana - see: (unknown) Henshaw #9300.

It is unknown why daughter Mary was not enumerated in the 1850 census, but it is possible that maybe she had been placed with another family temporarily.10  

Living two farms away in 1850 was the family of Benjamin & Susanah Hanshaw11 (probably Hezekiah's parents).10
