Born 7-2-18142,4,5 [about 18107], Lost Creek MM, Jefferson County, Tennessee2,4,5.
At Newberry MM on 3-5-1836, Richard was granted a certificate to Union MM, Ohio.4
He married Serena Coats, Miami County, Ohio.1,8 Serena, daughter of William+Charlotte Coats, was born 1822.1
At Union MM, Ohio on 7-16-1845, Richard was received on a certificate from Newberry MM, Tennessee, dated 5-3-18364 (what could have caused the long delay between 1836 and 1845??!).
Serena died Nov 6 1846, buried Clark Cemetery, White County, Indiana.1
At Union MM on 9-15-1848, Richard was disowned4 (reason unknown).
Richard crossed the plains with the gold rush of 1849, and after spending a few years in California returned to the East, settling in Indiana prior to the outbreak of the Civil War. Assuming contracts for digging ditches, he worked all through the northern part of White County, Indiana.3
Richard was shown in the 1850 census (Feb 4 1851), apparently living in a mining camp, Mosquito Canion, El Dorado County, California:7
He then married Catharine Miller, Mar 30 1856, Pulaski County, Indiana.1,9 Catharine was born 1829.1
Catharine died 1857, buried Clark Cemetery, White County, Indiana.1
He then married Mary A. Eaves6,10 [Maryann Eves11, Mary (Hickman) Eves1, Mary Ann Hickman1,3,12], Mar 31 18576,10, White County, Indiana6,10. Mary was born about 1827, Kentucky.2,11
Mary Ann had been previously married to a Madison Eves/Eaves11 (1843, Carroll County, Kentucky),12 by whom she had children William T.,2,11 George P.,11 Nancy E.,2,11 Martha F.,.11 and Samuel2 Eves/Eaves.
Richard and family were shown in the 1860 census (Jun 22 1860), Liberty Township, White County, Indiana:2
Richard Hinshaw died Oct 5 1861, buried Clark Cemetery, White County, Indiana.1,3
After Richard died his young children seem to have been sent to various different homes. Son John was shown in the 1870 census living in the household of Richard's brother William;14 son Richard was shown in the 1870 census living in the household of Mary Ann's daughter, Nancy (Eaves) Furguson;15 Mary Ann's son Samuel Eaves was shown in the 1870 census living (working) in the household of a William & Mary Hays.16 [It *appears* that Mary Ann might have remarried to William Hays, as her age in the 1870 census, 46, matches other census records for her, and she was shown with Samuel Eves].
