(Levi Hinshaw)a,b    (Levi Henshaw)c,d
Born about 1821, Tennessee.a,c,e
Note: Levi's approximate birth year and place were consistently reported in two different censuses as c1821, Tennessee.    However his parents reportedly did not move to Tennessee until 1830.    So in spite of the two consistent censuses it seems more likely that Levi was probably born in North Carolina.f    Note that Levi was not able to read or write, so his birth information was very likely only held by memory and probably unwrittenf (and thus he himself might have mistaken his own birth information).f
In 1830 Levi moved with his father to Franklin County, Tennessee.a
He married ---, before 1843, Tennessee.a    (wife's name currently not known).
