Zeno Hinshaw, a native of Parke county, Indiana, where he married Abigail Huff and came to Clay county about the year 1850, locating at what is now Center Point, where, in partnership with his brother-in-law, Shadrack Huff, he embarked in the nursery business on ground now owned and occupied by Adam Mader and R. L. Kennedy. On Huff’s retirement from the partnership but a few years later, Mr. Zeno Hinshaw continued the business. Having purchased the Calvin Presnell place, on the south side of the town, he transplanted his nursery stock. About the year 1863 he formed a partnership of several years with Lewis F. Ambrose. He continued in the business until the time of his going to Minnesota, in 1882. The settings of many valuable orchards in Clay and Owen counties were purchased at his nursery. Mr. Hinshaw was the second postmaster at Center Point, appointed under the Lincoln administration, and filled the position satisfactorily for a number of years. Afterward he was mail carrier on the daily star route service between Center Point and Ashboro, established the first of January, 1872. Mr. Hinshaw was a devoted churchman, a model husband and parent, a truly magnanimous neighbor, a citizen and patriot as true as steel, and in every sense an honest man. In this family were three sons - Ira, Millard and Jesse, all of whom went to Minnesota. The father died at Minneapolis, on the 17th day of March, 1888, aged sixty-two years, survived by his wife and sons. Ira, the eldest son, is engaged in farming, the two younger sons conducting a merchant tailoring business in the city of Minneapolis. The mother returned to Indiana, residing in Parke county, having remarried.
