Note: The book "Hinshaw and Henshaw Families" shows Hugh born in 1818 in McMurry County, Tennessee.13 However there is no such county or place in Tennessee (on modern maps anyway). The 1860 census for Williamson County, Illinois shows Hugh born in Alabama, age 35 (born about 1825).4 But the 1850 census for Williamson County shows him age 25 (born about 1825), born in Tennessee!3 His gravestone shows he was born 7-22-1818.17
He married Jane Campbell14,15,16,19 [Genette Jane Tanner6, Jane Tanner3,6], Jun 8 184614,15,16,19, Williamson County, Illinois14,15,16,19. Daughter Mary Ann's death certificate, showing information provided by one of Mary Ann's daughters, shows her mother's name was Jane Campbell.19 Hugh's marriage record in Williamson County, Illinois also shows her as Jane Campbell.15,16
Jane was born Feb 9 18206,18 [Feb - 181320], Tennessee6,18.
