He began his ministry in the Friend's church about thirty years ago, and his entire life work has been for the uplifting of the cause of Christ and the church. Although a sufferer for years, he went forth to help the wayfarer and by his earnestness and enthusiasm in the work, hundreds in our state and Ohio have been brought into the light. The funeral services were conducted by Revs. Job Dennis and Ira O. Johnson in the Friends' church at Winchester, after which his remains were interred in White River Cemetery. He leaves an aged father and mother, wife, two sons, three daughters, five brothers, four sisters and a host of friends to mourn his departure.

Death of Simpson S. Hinshaw.
Simpson S. Hinshaw, the well-known and popular minister of the Friends' church, died at his home in this city last Wednesday evening, after many years of suffering which was borne with great patience. He had not partaken any substantial nourishment for more than forty days prior to his death. An obituary is published elsewhere in this paper, and leaves us but little to say except to add that his death is the first break in the large family of Jacob Hinshaw except one boy that died in infancy. He was also the only one of the family who was a great sufferer for many years. He has conducted hundreds of revival meetings and by his earnest pleadings and extraordinary eloquence, hundreds of people in Indiana and Ohio have been led into the right. In the language of the text quoted by Rev. Dennis, "He rests from his labors and his works do follow him."
Besides the relatives and many friends in this county the following were present at the funeral services: Jacob Replogle and wife, Lon Brunner and wife, Ves Preddy and wife and Ash Kerns, of Cowan; Mrs. Mary Parish, Richmond; Grant Ward and family, Alexandria, and Enos Hinshaw, Hartford City.
Simpson's obituary was also published in "The American Friend" on August 8, 1901 (page 763).23
