"The Extension Service, which was started in Idaho in 1911, claims a share in the honor given the county (Canyon County) along agricultural lines.  Marion Cook, according to Clayton Brown, was the first man under this project to set out apple trees.  Clayton assisted him in getting the orchard started.  Others began planting family and small orchards of a variety of fruits, but the expense and time consuming care proved to be too much for most of the farmers who wanted to raise other crops such as grains, hay, seeds, and row crops.  Milas Hinshaw, however, stayed with the apples until he succeeded in owning the first commercial apple orchard, and the popular Hinshaw apples were shipped by carloads to other states.  He led the way with apples".

Milas also worked briefly for the railroad (when he was young) as a telegraph operator.29  

An election was held September 30, 1941, for the organization of a cemetery district for the Greenleaf area.  The election carried without a dissenting vote and in January, 1942, Chase Clark, Governor of Idaho, appointed the commissioners, one for each of the sub-districts that had been formed.  Sarah Crew was appointed from District Number 1, Milas Hinshaw from District 2, and William Benedict from District 3.  From them, Milas Hinshaw was elected president.31
