John Kay Hinshaw1 [Kay Hinshaw2].

Born about 1851.1  

John Kay, usually called simply Kay, was probably named after the Rev. John Kay of Castle Douglas, who is thought to have been a godfather to some or all of the John Hinshaw children.2  

About 1859 two samplers were made by either John Kay or his brother Andrew (or perhaps one made by each of them)2 - see the sampler images below.  

John Kay Hinshaw died Jan 18 1860, Hillend Reservoir, Monkland, Lanarkshire, Scotland; buried Shotts Churchyard, Lanarkshire, Scotland.1,2  

John Kay and his brother Andrew were both drowned in a local pond/loch, Hillend Reservoir in Monkland.1  See Andrew for the complete story.
