WILBUR HINSHAW was born in Walla Walla county, Washington, on December 9, 1860, the son of Luke and Isabel (McKinney) Hinshaw, both now deceased. At the age of three years he was taken by his parents to Washington county, Oregon, where he later attended the common schools as he grew to manhood on a farm. In the spring of 1879 he came to Walla Walla, and the following year he, with his father and mother, his brother, John D. and sister, Endora [sic], came to Lincoln county, where his father took a homestead in the vicinity of the present site of the town of Mohler. Here they engaged in the stock business, having an abundance of open grazing land, -- in fact their nearest neighbor lived distant ten miles. In 1891 Wilbur Hinshaw took a homestead, which he still owns. He has added to his original claim until he now owns three hundred and twenty acres, about one half of which is cultivated farm land, and the remainder used for pasturage of live stock, the raising of which is one of the leading branches of his agricultural business. In this business he is in partnership with his brother.
Mr. Hinshaw was married to May Lacey, a native of Indiana and daughter of John B. and Martha Lacey, both now living in Stevens county, Washington. This union has been blessed with four children: Edna M., Floyd K., Martha and Vera.
Mr. Hinshaw is a prosperous and prominent farmer, and it is the general supposition that he was the first male white child to be born in Walla Walla county.
