The Muster Roll of Captain Adrian Northcut's Company of 1836 shows William Hinshaw as a corporal in the war known variously as the Florida or Indian War. The 64 man company was enrolled for what was to be a period of six months, however five days later on Jun 18 1836, Governor Newton Cannon notified Captain Northcut that his Company would not be continued in the brigade at Fayetteville. With this word Captain Northcut then dismissed his Company to their homes to await further orders.1

In 1921 a letter was written to Mary Ilene ("Aileen") Fleming, wife of William's grandson William Alfred Hinshaw, apparently written by Nancy Godwin, wife of William's son Andrew Jackson 'A.J.' Hinshaw. This letter, which appears to reference the family bible of Mary Ann Cunningham, confirms the children of William & Mary Ann:2
March 15, 1921 at home
Responding to yours about Bill's [undecipherable]. Marys Bible shows A.J. as first born and May was the least. Others were called John, Tom, Henry, Beth, Pauline, Ellie, Nancy, Jesse, Mary, Susan and Leroy.
There were not around much what with them getting married, or dieing [sic] or moving away to Tennessee or Missoura [sic] or Arkansas. I forget a lot. A.J. always farmed like his dad. Henry did some clerking. John was a tinker and fixer.
I'm glad you get home safely and that Bill and the children are safe.
