Born Dec 28 18961,2,3,4,6,7,8 [Dec 28 18979, about 190410], Carmel, Hamilton County, Indiana1,2,3,4,6,7,8.  

Note that there is uncertaintly about Fred's birthdate.  In the earliest record of him, the 1910 census, he was shown 6 years old, making his birth about 1904.  But in later records, including records where he himself declared his birthdate, he was always recorded born before 1900, in fact born before his parents' marriage in 1905.  Fred himself was somewhat inconsistent, declaring his birthdate in 1918 as Dec 28 1897,9 but in 1942 as Dec 28 1896.8  It is possible that he wasn't sure of his own exact birthdate11 (it did happen), or perhaps he wanted to pretend to be older.11  Fred's father was shown in the 1900 census as still single, and Fred doesn't seem to be anywhere in the 1900 census in Hamilton County, Indiana (with either of his parents' families) so it seems likely that Fred was actually born about 1904 in spite of many records (including his own) showing earlier dates.  

He married Ruby Mae Snyder, Sep 14 1916, Beaverton, Gladwin County, Michigan.1,3  Ruby, daughter of Joseph Douglas Snyder & Effie Ella Hydorn, was born Jan 31 1900, Continental, Putnam County, Ohio.1,2,3,4,6,7,12  

On Jun 5 1918 Fred Hinshaw, age 21, registered for the World War I draft in Bryan, Williams County, Ohio.  He declared he was born December 28th 1897 in Carmel, Indiana, and was then residing in Edgerton, Ohio, self-emplyed; his father also born in Carmel, Indiana.  He declared his nearest relative was his wife, Mrs. Fred Hinshaw of Edgerton.  He was recorded as tall, slender, blue eyes, light hair.9
