Tamar A. Hinshaw1,2,3,4 [Taylor Hinshaw5, Thomas A. Hinshaw6].

Note: Since Cane Creek MM shows Tamer granted a certificate to Westfield MM in 1874, and Westfield shows a Thomas received on a certificate from Cane Creek, and since no Thomas is shown being given a certificate to Westfield anywhere near 1874 and since no Tamer/Tamar is shown being received at Westfield anytime, it has been concluded that Tamer and Thomas must be the same person (presumably female).
