|Richard Caron Hinshaw     [ID 05714]||Click here to switch to Ahnentafel view:|
Born Sep 23 1898, Foss, Indian Territory, Oklahoma.a,209,b,c,d,e
Richard was shown in his father's household in the 1900 census (Jul 10 1900), Washita County, Oklahoma:f,b
Richard served in the U.S. Armed Forces from Jun 8 1917 to Jun 6 1919.d    He was in the battle of Meuse-Argonne Forest, where he was wounded on Oct 5 1917, for which he received a purple heart and a silver cross with an oak leaf cluster.    While this definitely would classify him as hero, he never talked about this or any other war experiences.    In fact, his family did not know he had won such high honors until he died and his fellow VFW members located his war record and accorded him the 21 gun salute due him at his funeral.g
Richard was shown in the 1920 census (January 1920), Camp Zachary Taylor, Jefferson County, Kentucky:h
Irene had been previously married to William Bonner.e,j
Richard and Irene were shown in the 1930 census (Apr 2 1930), U.S. Highway No. 63, Turrell, Tagleman Township, Crittenden County, Arksansas:l
Irene was always the first to send food to the home of anyone ill or where there had been a death.    This generosity of hers was attested to anew at her own death when the ladies of the town came day after day bearing food to feed her family and each lady had a tale of when Irene had brought food to her house in a time of need.g
Irene once ran for public office in the little town of Imboden, Arkansas.    She only received a handful of votes.    The next morning when she went to the post office to get her mail she was wearing a set of toy pistols strapped to her side.    The postmaster asked her what in the world she was doing that for, and she replied, "Any one who has lived in a town this size and hasn't any more friends than the few who voted for me yesterday needs to wear protection".g
Richard was an electrician by trade, but also did some plumbing and mechanic work.    He had very courtly manners and was well liked by those outside of the family, but he was an overbearing, and sometimes cruel, father and husband.g
