McKinister, September 7, 1842, and to them was born one child, Iram, who is still living.    His wife died January 6, 1845; and on September 23, 1845, he was united in marriage to Eliza Carter who survives him.    To this union was born five children, four of whom, Eliza [sic], Elwood and Columbus Hinshaw and Mary M. Hunt are yet living.    For nearly fifty-five years Absalom and Eliza lived together as husband and wife within a few miles of his decease, and for over fifty years they have resided on the farm where he died.    He was one of the pioneer fathers who saw the wild and unbroken forsets [sic] slowly disappear before the march of civilization and progress and give way to broad and fertile farms.    With a brave heart and a strong hand he contributed his portion to the toil and hardships so neccessary [sic] to made [sic] this well-improved and beautiful country.    Absalom Hinshaw was well beloved in the community where he lived for more than half a century.    He had a cheery word for all with whom he was associated, and was ever ready to accomodate his neighbors.    He loved his family and was ready to assist them at all times; he was an honest man, a man of strict integrity, and it can be truely [sic] said of him that a good husband and father, a kind neighbor, and honest, upright citizen, having lived more than man's allotted days, has gone to his final resting place.
Absalom's last will and testament was later probated, as reported in the "Winchester Herald" (Winchester, Indiana) (see obituary scan below):v
The last will and testament of Absalom Hinshaw, was probated January 3.    He leaves to his beloved wife, Eliza Hinshaw, the home farm consisting of ninety acres, the farm bought of Elwood Hinshaw.    At death of his wife he bequeathed land to his daughter, May Hinshaw [sic], to have and hold in fee simple forever.    To Columbus Hinshaw he leaves 106 acres to hold forever.    All personal property is left to his wife, and at her death all personal, notes, procdeds [sic] of farm, etc., to his children, share and share alike.
