Mines Hinshaw1 [Minus Hinshaw3,8,12,13,14, Minnis Hinshaw15].

Born Feb 1 18241,2,4,6,8,10,12,16 [about 18235], North Carolina1,2,4,6,8,10,12,16.  

Tall and thin, Mines was friendly and likeable, but not as good looking as his brother James.3  

At Marlborough MM on 4-2-1842, "Minus & Milton" were disowned.1  

He married Mary Brower1,2,3,9,16 [Nancy "Mary" Bowers13, Nancy Brown12], 18441,2,3,9,16.  Mary, daughter of Adam Brower & Charity Foust, was born 3-26-1826, North Carolina.1,2,3,4,5,8,16  

Mines and his wife Mary were shown in the 1850 census, living with Mines' father William in Randolph County, North Carolina:15

Wm Hinshaw, age 71, born in North Carolina; farmer; $3437 real estate.
Minnis Hinshaw, age 27, born in North Carolina.
Mary Hinshaw, age 17 [sic], born in North Carolina.

On Nov 23 1854, Mines was recorded as bondsman for the marriage bond of his nephew Newton Hinshaw.17  

Minus and family were shown in the 1860 census (Aug 27 1860), Randolph County, North Carolina:4

Minus Hinshaw, age 36, born in North Carolina; farmer; $3000 real estate; $1250 personal property.
Mary Hinshaw, age 34; domestic.
Noah Hinshaw, age 9; attended school.
Zeno Hinshaw, age 7; attended school.
Allen Hinshaw, age 5; attended school.
Isabel Hinshaw, age 1.

Minus enlisted in the Confederacy on May 21 1864 at Camp Holmes in Raleigh, N.C.,2 joining as a private in Company K, 34th North Carolina Infantry.18,19  He deserted on Jun 15 1864.2  

After the death of his father in 1869, Minus inherited his father's farm3 (Minus and Mary had been living with his father on the family farm since at least 1850).20  Minus became known within the county as a model farmer.  He owned the area's first reaper and mowing machines.3  

Minus and family were shown in the 1870 census (Jul 29 1870), Franklinsville Township, Randolph County, North Carolina:5

Hinshaw, Minus, age 47, born in North Carolina; occupation: farmer; $2000 real estate; $1967 personal property.
Hinshaw, Mary, age 44, born in North Carolina; occupation: housekeeping.
Hinshaw, Noah, age 19, born in North Carolina; occupation: "Minus Hinshaw".
Hinshaw, Zeno, age 17, born in North Carolina; occupation: "trustee for Joseph Walker an Heir"; $600 real estate.
Hinshaw, Allen, age 15, born in North Carolina.
Hinshaw, Isabel, age 11, born in North Carolina.
Hinshaw, Minnie, age 7, born in North Carolina.
Hinshaw, Adam, age 3, born in North Carolina.
The above 1870 census record was recorded with the occupation column for son Noah showing "Minus Hinshaw", and immediately below in the occupation column for son Zeno "Trustee for Joseph Walker an Heir".  It seems improbable that 17-year-old Zeno would have been a trustee - this might have been the census taker's attempt to record that Minus Hinshaw was a trustee for Joseph Walker, with $600 in real estate held in trust21 (the census form otherwise had no place to record real estate held in trust).  

Minus and family were shown in the 1880 census (Jun 2 1880), Franklinsville Township, Randolph County, North Carolina:8

Hinshaw, Minus, age 56, born in North Carolina; parents born in North Carolina; farmer.
Hinshaw, Mary, wife, age 54, born in North Carolina; parents born in North Carolina; keeping house.
Hinshaw, Isabella, daughter, age 21, born in North Carolina; parents born in North Carolina; attended school.
Hinshaw, Minnie, daughter, age 17, born in North Carolina; parents born in North Carolina; attended school.
Hinshaw, Adam, son, age 13, born in North Carolina; parents born in North Carolina; farm laborer; attended school.
Living next door in 1880 was the family of son Allen.22  one more house away was the family of son Zeno.23
