A biographical sketch of Otis Hinshaw was published in a book of Indiana biographies as follows:12
O.W. HINSHAW, physician and surgeon at Winchester, is a native of Randolph County, and his people were among the pioneers of Eastern Indiana, representing the Quaker stock that has been such an important and valuable factor in the development of the material, civic and moral conditions in this section of the state. Doctor Hinshaw was born in Randolph County in 1874, son of Meredith and Mary Ellen (Fudge) Hinshaw, who were also born in the same county. His paternal grandparents, Jacob and Pollie (Carter) Hinshaw, were also born in Randolph County. Doctor Hinshaw's great-Grandparents, Able and Nancy Hinshaw, came from Randolph County, North Carolina, to Indiana, being a part of a general migration of Quaker people from that section of the old North State. Doctor Hinshaw's grandfather, Jacob Fudge, was also born in Randolph County. Meredith Hinshaw owned a farm of 200 acres of the choice land in Washington Township. He served as a member of the township advisory board, was a minister of the Friends Church and for fourteen years was superintendent of the Winchester Quarterly Meeting. He died in 1922 and the mother of Doctor Hinshaw is now eighty-four, still in full possession of all her faculties. Doctor Hinshaw grew up on a farm, attended district schools and the Indiana State Normal at Terre Haute. As a young man he taught for four years in Washington Township, and he partly paid his expenses while a student in Rush Medical College at Chicago. He was graduated in 1901, and returned to Indiana to take the examination before the state medical board. In that examination he received the highest grades of any applicant that had ever appeared before the board. Doctor Hinshaw for nearly twenty years practiced medicine at Lynn, Indiana and since 1920 has been at Winchester. He married in 1901 Miss Pearl Moody, a native of Randolph County, daughter of William and Ruth (Beard) Moody. Her people were likewise early settlers of Indiana. Her maternal grandfather, Dr. Paul Beard, was a pioneer physician. Doctor and Mrs. Hinshaw have one daughter, Miss Christine. Doctor Hinshaw is a steward in the Methodist Episcopal Church, while his daughter is a member of the Quaker Church. While living at Lynn he acted for a number of years as health officer, has also been county health officer, and since 1927, county coroner. He is a Republican, a member of the Masonic fraternity, Knights of Pythias, and belongs to the County, State and American Medical Associations.
