Born May 26 1936, Turrell, Crittenden County, Arkansas.a,b,c

When Louis was a baby, if he dropped anything on the table as he was eating, he took his finger and smeared it around until it would not go any farther.  As he grew, his interest in the world around him grew, and he was always "smearing around" in some project or other, so the nickname "Smear" stuck to him throughout life.d

He married Annette Ruder, Nov 22 1970, Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska.e  Annette, daughter of George Ruder & Elizabeth "Betty" Glotzbach, was born Oct 8 1939, Hays, Ellis County, Kansas.d,f,g,h,c,209,i

Louis was inventive and had patents on several inventions.  Mensa member (I.Q. 165).  He was a writer and lecturer.d

Annette died Feb 22 1999, Tulsa, Tulsa County, Oklahoma; buried Oak Hill Cemetery, Mannford, Creek County, Oklahoma.j,f,g,209,i

Annette's death notice was published in "Tulsa World" on Feb 25 1999:f

Hinshaw, Annette, 59, public utilities specialist, died Monday.  Services pending.  McLemore-Sloan.

Annette's death was also noted on "The Witches' Voice" web site: http://www.witchvox.com/va/dt_va.html?a=usfl&c=passages&id=4875

Louis Wesley Hinshaw died Sep 20 2014, Oklahoma State University Medical Center, Tulsa, Tulsa County, Oklahoma.d

On Sep 11 2014, a teenaged girl had come to Louis' door at about 1:30 a.m. and asked to use the phone.  She said she was staying with her sister next door and got home late, couldn't get in the house and wanted to call her sister to let her in.  Louis asked her what her sister's name was and the girl didn't know the name of the woman next door, so Louis told her not only could she not use the phone but he was calling the police, and he did so.  The girl took off.  At 2:30 a.m. Louis woke to two thugs hitting him on the side of his head and asking him where his guns, money and drugs were.  They repeatedly beat him on the head using the heels of their hands resulting in death from severe brain trauma and a pulmonary embolism nine days later.d
