Born Jan 13 1898, Estillfork, Jackson County, Alabama.2,5,6  (Jan - 1897).7,8  

Robert's birth was not recorded in Alabama (not altogether unusual then in rural America).  In 1943, in order to work in the bomber plant in Fort Worth, Texas, Robert obtained a birth certificate from Hunt County, Texas.  The birth certificate properly shows his birth as occuring in "Estell Fork", Alabama, but the birth certificate itself is actually recorded in Hunt County, Texas.6  

On Sep 12 1918 Robert Trible Hinshaw, age 20, registered for the World War I draft at Greenville, Hunt County, Texas.  He declared he was born Jan 13 1898, and was then a resident of Lone Oak, Hunt County, Texas where he was a farmer.  He was recorded as tall, slender, black eyes, black hair.5  

He married Reba Gladys Wheeless, about 1922.1,2  Reba, daughter of James + Ora Wheeless, was born Mar 25 1906, Emory, Rains County, Texas.1,2,9  

Robert and family were shown in the 1930 census (Apr 9 1930), Hunt County, Texas:2

Hendrick, Troo E. [unclear], nephew, age 4 years 9 months, born in Texas; parents born in Texas.

Robert Tribble Hinshaw died Nov 15 1953.1  

After Robert died, Reba remarried to Royce Hal Grace on Jan 29 1966, Tarrant County, Texas11 (apparently keeping her name unchanged as Reba Gladys Henshaw).11  

Reba died Nov 9 1998, Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas; age 92.1,9,11,12  

Reba's obituary was published as follows:9

Mrs. Henshaw was born March 25, 1906 in Emory, daughter of James and Ora Wheeless.  She was a longtime member of Birchman Baptist Church.
