Tunis' obituary was published in the "Goldendale Sentinel" (Goldendale, Washington) on October 10, 1932:12
Tunis T. Hinshaw, son of Isaac and Elizabeth Hinshaw was born in Monrovia, Indiana, May 3, 1857 and passed away at his home in White Salmon, Washington, October 6, 1932, at the age of 75 years, 5 months, and 3 days. He was the oldest of a family of nine children.
When ten years of age, he moved with his parents to Douglas county, Kansas where he lived, within a few miles of Lawrence until 1875.
A few years were later spent in Santa Rosa, California, and in 1877, the family settled near Goldendale, Washington where he made his home for many years.
In early manhood he became a Christian and joined the M.E. church of which he remained a faithful member until death.
On October 31, 1883 he was united in marriage with Miss Jennie Short at the home of her parents in Marion county, Oregon.
To this union were born ten children, all of whom survive excepting the first-born (twins) who died in infancy.
He leaves the widow and the following sons and daughters: Ernest T. Hinshaw, San Francisco, Cal.; Mrs. R.D. Gray, Salem, Ore.; Mrs. B.H. DeVoe, Seattle, Wash.; Mrs. Roy H. Cain, White Salmon, Wash.; Mrs. E.R. Hudson, Mrs. W.C. Schramm, and Miss Alice Hinshaw, Portland, Ore., and Mrs. D.T. Coughlin, St. Helens, Oregon, all of whom rise up and calling him blessed.
Deceased moved with his family to White Salmon in 1911, where he has made his home.
The memory of the long, quiet, unassuming life of faith, and loyalty to all things, good and uplifting, -- his unselfish devotion to his family and especially the gentle, loving ministrations to the needs of his invalid wife, who for many years has been a great sufferer, shines as a beacon light to those who remain and as a guide to the haven toward which for many years, he so faithfully and patiently journeyed.
While not in good health for many years, his last illness was of short duration, but he was weary, and when the summons came, he very quietly and peacefully slipped away.
We mourn not as those without hope, for, "Blessed are the dead who died in the Lord."
Funeral services were said at White Salmon on Monday, October 10th, Rev. R.C. young officiating, Merle W. Chapman having charge of the arrangements.
Lucinda died Dec 4 1935, at her home, White Salmon, Klickitat County, Washington; buried West Klickitat Cemetery District No. 1, Snowden Road, White Salmon, Klickitat County, Washington.2,19,23

For many years she has been an invalid, but through it all was a gentle, patient sufferer who held fast to her faith in God embraced early in life. She has since gone to her rest and the deep grief of her family bespeaks better than words, of the love, sacrifice, and devotion to those near and dear to her.
Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Stout, from the M.E. church, at White Salmon, Friday, Dec. 6th, at 2 p.m., followed by interment in the I.O.O.F. cemetery.

He received his education in the public schools of Indiana and Kansas, to the latter of which states he went with his parents at the age of ten. The family came west to California when he was about eighteen years old and the following year he took up the carpenter's trade, which he followed for nearly three years. He came north to Klickitat county in 1878, arriving on the last day of May, and settled in Goldendale, where he followed his trade for a period of three years. He then took up agriculture as a means of gaining a livelihood. He was employed by ft. W. Helm fourteen months, then In the fall of 1882 rented his employer's place and engaged in farming on his own account. Two years were thus spent. He filed on his present homestead in June, 1883, and has since made his home on the land, following agriculture and stock raising. He now owns about 260 acres of land, of which he is at present cultivating 200 acres. He has considerable stock of different kinds on the place, but is making a specialty of the best blooded hogs. He is an enterprising, progressive and successful farmer.
