Thomas Doane Hinshaw's obituary appeared in "The Union Star", Union, Hardin County, Iowa, on Thursday, December 7, 1911, as follows:13

TWO PIONEERS LAID TO REST.  
THOMAS D. HINSHAW BURIED IN CHESTER LAST FRIDAY.  
[....]
Thomas D. Hinshaw of Chicago, long a resident of Hardin County, Iowa, has passed to a higher life.  He died as he has lived, a strong, fearless, valiant soul, absolutely confident of the future and ready at any moment to answer the call to higher realms.  

Although seventy six years old he was until Monday, November 6th, in full robust health and he walked with the stalwartness that has marked him through life as a strong man among his fellow men.  On November 6th he fell accidentally, headlong down a flight of stairs, breaking many bones and generally destroying his fine body to such an extent that recovery was impossible.  

During his short illness his mind was generally clear and he expressed himself as being glad that the time for his promotion to a higher life had arrived and he greeted the new existance with joy and understanding.  

Thomas Hinshaw will long be remembered by those to whom he stood as a benefactor during his residence in the neighborhood of Chester.  Never was there a poor man in need but that Thomas went to his aid.  Never was there a sick man, woman or child, no matter how malignant the disease, but that Thomas and his good wife Anna, long since lamented, went to them and cared for them night and day, often taking wood for the fire and food for the table.  

Thomas was always a friend to the poor, with a hand ever ready to lift one who had fallen, and he was loved and respected among his friends and business associates as a man of integrity, honesty and ability.  

He was born August 5, 1835, near Knoxville, Tenn., migrated at an early age with his father, Wm. Hinshaw, first to Indiana and later to Iowa where he spent his life up to twenty years ago as a farmer and stock raiser near Chester, Hardin Co.  After the death of his wife in 1890 he lived in Chicago, Ill., and Denver, Colo., where he was actively engaged in contracting and building houses.  

He leaves four sons and three daughters all of whom were at his bedside during his short illness.  Three of his sons, Dr. L. E. Hinshaw, Marvin Victor Hinshaw and John Arno Hinshaw, reside in Chicago and his son William Wade Hinshaw resides in New York City; the daughters, Mrs. H. Hill, Mrs. Freme H. Holmes and Mrs. H. Pearson reside in Denver, Colo., Valparaiso, Ind, and Custer, Wash., respectively.  

Thomas Hinshaw's remains were interred in the Chester cemetery in his own family lot.  

After his accident, realizing that the end was near he asked that his body be taken there for burial, saying that he had himself placed a double gravestone there when his wife was buried 21 years ago, that his own body might at last be placed beside hers, the double stone being a symbol of their reunion after death.  

As his life has been passed seeking always for truth and the higher possible development, his great, strong soul is now permitted to cast off its earthly garments and pass into the midst of friends and loved ones gone before.  While we sorrow that he has left us, we rejoice for him that he has lived so well, developed so great a soul and at last going so cheerfully and fearlessly, achieved so great a Victory.
