Born 7-25-1773, Guilford County, North Carolina.4,5,6
On Apr 20 1794 the Roan Creek Church of Christ was founded at the foot of Rainbow Mountain, the left fork of Roan Creek, in what is today Johnson County, Tennessee. Among the Charter Members of Raon Creek Church was "Jessee Hinshaw".7
Jesse Henshaw was shown (along with George Henshaw and Benjamin Henshaw) on the 1801 Tax List, Roane County, Tennessee.8 (Note: Roane County was formed December 20 1801, before Overton County was formed in 1808).9 Jesse, George and Benjamin Henshaw were again shown on the 1802 Tax List of Roane County, Tennessee (Capt. Richard Oliver's Company).10
Jesse was issued a Cherokee Indian Agency Passport on June 6, 1804:11
[presumed to be *this* Jesse Hinshaw, but could be another Jesse].
"Jesse Hinshaw has permission to pass thro [sic] that part of the Cherokee Nation on his way to Greene County State of Georgia he conducting in a peacable manner & in conformity to the Law regulating intercourse with the Indian Tribes. (T. Meigs)".
A deed was recorded in Overton County, Tennessee, on August 20, 1811, where Jesse appointed his brother George as attorney to convey lands. See: George.9,12
Some sources show that Jesse died in Texas in 1819. However, Texas did not exist in 1819 and no substantiation has ever shown that Jesse moved to Texas or that he died in 1819.
Jesse was shown in the 1820 census, Warren County, Tennessee (page 306)1,13,14
Jesse Henshaw was again shown in the 1830 census, Warren County, Tennessee (page 356).15,16
Jesse was shown in the 1840 census, living alone in Coffee County, Tennessee.17
Jesse was shown in the 1850 census, living with his son William in Hickman County, Kentucky:18
Jesse Hinshaw died after 1850.
Near McMinnville, in Warren County, Tennessee, is a Cumberland cavern which at one time had an entrance named the "Hinshaw Entrance".9 Since Jesse was living in Warren County it is possible this cave entrance might have been named after him (speculation).
