Arthur Elmer Hinshaw1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9 [Richard Hinshaw10].

Born Oct 13 1905, McLean County, Illinois.1,4,5,6,7,8  

Arthur and his parents moved from McLean County, Illinois, to Chillicothe, Missouri, when Arthur was young.  Arthur's older brothers remained in Illinois.3  

The following article was published in The "Chillicothe Constitution Tribune" (Chillicothe, Missouri) on Friday, June 2, 1922:11



The Shooting, According to Hoyt, Followed Refusal of Party of Spooners to Leave Vicinity of His Home.  

Merrill Hoyt, living on the northwest corner of the Four Corners, west of the city on the Third street road, was placed under arrest late Thursday afternoon following a charge of assault made by Miss Barbara Gerardy, 19 years old.  Information was filed by Prosecuting Attorney Nolan M. Chapman charging that Hoyt, on or about May 27th, did feloniously and willfully make an assault on Barbara Gerardy with a shot gun, shooting the said Barbara Gerardy with a shot gun, loaded with powder and leaden bullets, and that Miss Gerardy was maimed, wounded and disfigured and her life was endangered, against the peace and dignity of the state.  


The charge is the outcome of an incident which occurred near the home of Hoyt on the night of Saturday, May 28th, when Miss Gerardy, together with several other girls and boys, are alleged by Hoyt to have stopped their car near the Hoyt home and proceeded to stage a spooning party that became very annoying to him and his family.  Hoyt charges that he advised the party to leave, but that they paid no attention to his warning and continued a noisy and annoying party that trespassed violently on proper conventions.  Failing to induce the party to move on, Hoyt declares he discharged his shotgun in an effort to frighten them, with no intention of shooting into the crowd.  

As a result of the shot, according to those in the party, Barbara Gerardy, Violet Gerardy, Emma Greenewalt, Virgil Hinshaw and Arthur Hinshaw were wounded by shot, Roy Hughes, the sixth member of the party, escaped uninjured.  

According to members of the party, they were merely out for a car ride and stopped their car a short distance west of the four corners.  Almost immediately afterwards Hoyt, who lives nearby, appeared and ordered them to move on.  No reply was made to his order, according to those in the car, but Roy Hughes immediately got out of the car and was attempting to crank it when Hoyt appeared again and fired a shotgun.  He fired but one shot, according to those in the car.  Miss Barbara Gerardy, in which behalf the information was filed by the state's attorney, is said to have suffered three wounds - one in the righ [sic] cheek, one on the back of her right hand and one on the right wrist.  Miss Gerardy was taken to the office of Dr. N. W. Dowell, who removed the shot from her cheek and dressed her other wounds.  

One of the shots is said to have struck Miss Violet Gerardy on the side of the neck, inflicting a slight wound, one is said to have struck Miss Greenwalt on the back of her right hand and Hinshaw was reported to have been hit in the back by the lead shot.  Virgil Hinshaw's wound is said to have been in his right arm, one shot tearing a hole in the brim of his hat.  

The affair was reported to the prosecuting attorney's office Sunday morning but action in the matter was not taken until late Thursday afternoon.  

The Misses Gerardy, who are sisters, and Miss Greenwalt are employed at the glove factory.  Virgil and Arthur Hinshaw, who are brothers, live on a farm south of the city.  Roy Hughes is a tramster and resides in Chillicothe.

He married Doris Clark, Nov 25 1926, Trenton, Missouri.2,10  Doris, daughter of C. Frank + Bertha Clark, was born about 1908, Missouri.2  

Arthur's marriage was announced in "The Chillicothe Constitution Tribune" (Chillicothe, Missouri) on Saturday, November 27, 1926:10
