JONATHAN HINSHAW FAMILY by Mrs. J. Grady
Since 1841, when Jonathan and Mary (Jackson) Hinshaw migrated to Lawrence County, Missouri, from Randolph County, N.C., their descendants have increased in number from three to nearly three hundred. Several of these are Lawrence County residents today. Jonathan, who was 26 in 1841, was a descendant of early Americans who had come from England via Scotland and Ireland to N.C. where his brothers' and sisters' descendants are still living. He and Mary, with their sons, Dempsey J., William H. and Junius W. Hinshaw settled here near the homestead of Mary's brother, Elisha Jackson and family, also from N.C. Elisha was the ancestor of Everett Jackson, of Mt. Vernon.
The Hinshaw's daughters, who were all born here, were Mary (Mrs. Tim Connel), Isabella (Mrs. James Cassity), Harriet Hinshaw, and Eliza (Mrs. John Cassity). One daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tim Connel is still living. She is Mrs. Frank (Ana) Hunter of Springfield, Missouri. The oldest son, Dempsey Hinshaw, became the grandfather of Joseph Calvin Hinshaw of Wichita, Kansas, an editor, who has recently compiled "The History and Genealogy of the Hinshaw Family".
By 1866, Jonathon's only surviving son was William Hamby Hinshaw, whose wife was Mildred Eldridge Webb, daughter of Edward and Nancy Webb, also of Lawrence County. Their sons and daughters were William J., John and Robert Hinshaw, Nancy (Mrs. Lee Roberts), Mary (Mrs. John Mount), Eliza (Mrs. Major Morgan), Lillie (Mrs. Delbert Bowles) and Martha Hinshaw. Most of them spent their lives and reared their families in the Miller area. Mrs. Lillie Bowles of Carthage, is the only immediate survivor of William H. and Mildred Hinshaw. She and her niece, their grandfather and great-grandfather Jonathan Hinshaw.
Jonathon Hinshaw, who passed away February 22, 1889, left his foot prints on our soil. Some of them were no doubt made deeper by the grief he so silently bore. He lost his sons as a result of the War. He lost his wife and daughter Harriet, to an illness for which at that time there was no cure. But gladly did he contribute to our American education through the training of his two daughters who were teachers in our schools: Mrs. Isabella Hinshaw Cassity and Mrs. Eliza Hinshaw Cassity (who married brothers). Jonathan and Mary Hinshaw rest in the Stahl Cemetery, which is a few miles southwest of Miller, Mo.
