DAVID L. HINSHAW
There have come to Indiana from other states many men of limited financial resources, but imbued with sturdy independence and a laudable ambition to succeed, and who have taken advantage of the wonderful possibilities afforded here and gradually step by step have risen to places of prominence in business circles. The career of the well-known gentleman whose name appears at the beginning of this biographical notice illustrates most forcibly the possibilities that are open to a man who possesses intelligence and natural business qualifications combined with integrity and honor. It proves that success is not a thing to be inherited but to be won by sheer force of energy directed and controlled by correct moral principles: it also proves that neither wealth nor social position nor the assistance of influential friends are at times requisite in placing an individual on the high road to prosperity and honorable station. David L. Hinshaw is the son of Benjamin and Annas (Bowman) Hinshaw and was born in North Carolina on the 26th of September, 1826. He was the tenth in order of birth in a family of twelve children. He passed his early life up to the age of eighteen years upon a farm, in the meantime obtaining in the public schools a fair knowledge of the common branches of learning. Upon leaving the farm he commenced to learn the trade of a blacksmith. In 1832 he accompanied his parents upon their removal to Indiana. They first located in Wayne County, but in 1834 came to Henry County, and here he worked at his trade for eleven years. He was married in 1850 and in 1855 he bought the nucleus of the farm on which he now resides. He first purchased eighty acres, but so successful was he in its operation and so wise his business management that by subsequent additions he has now in his possession three hundred and thirty acres, valued at twenty thousand dollars. All of this has been acquired by hard work and now Mr. Hinshaw can view with a large degree of satisfaction the result of his past years of arduous labor. On the 18th of August, 1850, Mr. Hinshaw was united in the holy bonds of matrimony with Miss Emeline Adams whose parents came to this state from Ohio, the mother having been a native of Kentucky. Mrs. Hinshaw was born in Ripley County Indiana, was reared upon a farm and received the benefit of a fair common-school education. She is a most estimable lady and has nobly stood by the side of her husband in his efforts to gain a comfortable home and a competence. They are faithful and consistent members of the Society of Friends. In politics the subject was formerly a Whig, but since the dissolution of that party he has cast his ballot and influence in favor of the Republican Party, believing the policies of that party to be those most conductive to the welfare of the American people. He has never had a desire for public office, but was at one time prevailed upon to accept the office of supervisor of his township. Ranking with the most progressive agriculturists of the county, and enjoying the reputation of a successful financier, he is also one who takes a leading part in all measures for the common welfare and supports every movement whereby his community may be benefited. He is an honorable man, honest in all his business transactions, and not a dollar in his possession but has been earned by legitimate and straightforward methods. Throughout his community he is held in high esteem and his career as a neighbor and a citizen has always been above reproach. His aim is to be on the moral side of any question and to the best of his judgment and ability he has exerted his influence with this end in view. Greensboro Township can boast of no better citizen and Henry County has been greatly benefited by his long period of residence therein.
