Abel C. Hinshaw1,5,6,7,8 [Able C. Hinshaw9, Abel Henshaw10,11].

Born Feb 10 1842, probably Clinton County, Ohio.12  

Abel was shown age 19 in the 1850 Federal Census, Columbiana, Ohio.11  Note that this data from the 1850 census seems to conflict with Abel's birth date as computed from his gravestone inscription.  There are several possibilities: Perhaps the census was wrong (it happened, and frequently).  Maybe the census should be '9', not '19' (a much closer match to an 1842 birth date).  Or perhaps the gravestone is wrong, or maybe the inscription is weathered enough that a '60' looks like a '50' and therefore maybe he was actually born Feb 10 1832 (again closer to age 19 in 1850).  So Abel's birth date cannot be determined with certainty, however the Feb 10 1842 date (from the gravestone) is probably correct.  

Able's brothers Amos, John and Timothy had all moved to Randolph County, Indiana about 1850.  

He married Maraetta Linton1,5,13,14 [Maretta Linton4,8, Aery E. Linton14], Sep 29 18591,5,13,14, Randolph County, Indiana1,5,13,14.  Married by Thomas Hough, J.P.8  Maraetta was born Apr 9 1844, Indiana.2,14,15,16  Abel and his brother Amos married sisters: Maretta was the sister of Amos' wife Elizabeth Linton.17

In Jun 1863 Abel registered for the Civil War draft in the 5th Congressional District, Greensfork Township, Randolph County, Indiana:18

Abel came with brother Amos to Missouri in 1865, immediately after the war.  They travelled by river, landing at Burlington, Missouri.  They lived on the bottom land in that area for a few years.  They then moved to Cedar Creek, also Boone County, Missouri.  They built a log house, and later a frame house which is still standing on a farm owned by Luther Clatterbuck.17
