Pioneer Recalls the
Hardships of Early
Days and Blizzard

Looking back over the years on her eighty-eighth birthday Thursday, Jan. 17th, Mrs. Eva Stanton had many recollections of early Iowa pioneer days.  

Born near Buffalo, New York, she traveled out to Bremer county Iowa with her parents when she was only a year old.  

It was nearly 80 years ago when the family journeyed by covered wagon to Lyon county Iowa, where her father, John VanCampen, took up a claim and settled just 5 1/2 miles west of Ashton.  

The sod house sheltered the family for several years and it was in a sod house that "Grandma Stanton" first attended school.  She recalls that there were only six pupils and that the teacher was Mrs. Jacob Hinshaw, a neighbor.  Mr. Hinshaw conducted church services at the sod house on Sundays.

60 YEARS AGO

(From the Mail of Dec. 3, 1891).  
...  
Mrs. Hannas [sic] Hinshaw of Okoboji, who formerly resided in Sheldon, has been visiting her son and old-time friends hereabouts during the past week.  Her husband was at one time recorder of this county.  He was also quite active and conspicuious in this vicinity in an early day as a Quaker preacher and we remember that the first funeral sermon we heard in this twp. was preached by Jacob Hinshaw at the burial of John Wood, one of the first settlers, which occurred on the treeless prairie northeast of town in 1873.

Jacob and Hannah were shown in the 1900 census (Jun 7 1900), Cedar Township, Lee County, Iowa:9

Hinshaw, Jacob, head-of-household, age 57, born Mch 1843 in Indiana; father born in North Carolina; mother born in Indiana; married 35 years; occupation: minister; rented home.
Hinshaw, Hannah E., wife, age 55, born May 1845 [unclear] in Indiana; father born in Indiana, mother in North Carolina; married 35 years; 4 children, 4 living.

Hannah died Sep 19 1905, buried Okoboji Cemetery, Arnold's Park, Dickinson County, Iowa.4,8  

On Dec 30 1905 Jacob purchased 40 acres of land in Beltrami County, Minnesota.  About this same time sons Erwin and Linneus also purchased land in the same county.21  Jacob was shown in the land records as "Jacob Hinshaw of Beltrami County, Minnesota",21 so it appears that he had moved to Minnesota by 1905.  

He then married Mary A. -, about 1907.10  Mary was born about 1844, Iowa.10  

Jacob and Mary were shown in the 1910 census (Apr 21 1910), Arnolds Park, Dickinson County, Iowa:10

Hinshaw, Jacob, head-of-household, age 67, born in Indiana; parents born in North Carolina; first marriage [sic], married 3 years; occupation: minister, in town; owned home (free).
Hinshaw, Mary, wife, age 66, born in Iowa; parents born in Iowa; second marriage, married 3 years.

Jacob Hinshaw died Nov 28 1919, Long Beach, Los Angeles County, California; age 76.4,8,11,22
