Jane Hinshaw1,2,3,4 [Jean Hinshaw5].

Born about 1760.3  

On 9-7-1793, Jane was disowned from Cane Creek MM (reason unknown)

She married Joshua Hadley, Jr., 7-16-1803, Rocky River Meeting House, Chatham County, North Carolina.3,4,6,7  Joshua, son of Joshua Hadley & Patience Brown, was born 5-23-1743, Chester County, Pennsylvania.4  

The Cane Creek MM record shows that on 7-16-1803 "Jane Hinshaw, Chatham Co., daughter of Jacob & Rebecca, Randolph Co., married Joshua Hadley, Sr.".  It also shows an entry for 8-6-1803 where "Jane Hinshaw condemned her marriage out of unity".6  

Note that Joshua was not actually "Joshua Hadley, Sr." but was really "Joshua Hadley, Jr.", but he also had a son Joshua (III) so the Cane Creek Quakers apparently referred to them as Sr. and Jr. respectively.8  

Jane was Joshua's third wife (he previously married Ruth Lindley, then Lydia [Beals] Hiatt).4,9  

Note that Joshua's sons Joshua and Joseph (by his previous marriage to Ruth Lindley) later married Ruth's second cousins, twins Rebecca and Mary Hinshaw.

In his will, Jane's father Jacob named daughter Jane and his son-in-law William, husband of daughter Mary, as executors of his estate.12  

Joshua died Aug 8 1815, Near Snow Camp, Orange County, North Carolina; buried Spring MM Cemetery, Orange County, North Carolina.4,10,13  

Jane Hinshaw died 7-27-1833, Chatham County, North Carolina.3
