Newcomers at Home


Andrew Hinshaw
128 S. We Go Trail

Oct. 31 was moving day for Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Hinshaw and their children, Andrew Jr., Kathy and Julie.  The adjustment to a new community and a colder climate (the family came here from Charlotte, N. C.) was harder for the youngsters who found most of their neighbors playing indoors or in school at that time of year, than for Lois Hinshaw whose busy household and cheerful disposition helped her to feel at home quickly.  A trip to the loop on a cummuter [sic] train recently added pleasure to her suburban life.  

Andrew Sr. grew up in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., while Lois calls Elyria, Ohio her home town.  Andy attended the University of Michigan; Lois went to Lindenwood College in St. Charles, Mo., and graduated from Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio.  Both find gardening and reading their first choice of recreation.  

Andrew Jr., 11, shares his parents' love of books, and is an excellent student of history.  Football, at which he broke a bone in his leg during a back yard scrimmage soon after coming here, continues to be his favorite sport, but his confinement was not hard, since it just have the boy more time to spend with his beloved motorized models.  Kathy, 9, and Julie, 6 1/2, are truly feminine in their love of dolls and all three adore "Ginger," the family pet dog.  

With Chrysler Corp., Mr. Hinshaw is in the marketing department of the Dodge division.

In 1997 Andrew was living in/near Tryon, Polk County, North Carolina.9  

Andrew Brown Hinshaw died May 4 19976,9, Spartanburg, Spartanburg County, South Carolina6,9 [Tryon, Polk County, North Carolina1].  

Andrew's obituary was published on Tuesday, May 6, 1997 in The Journal-News (Hamilton, Ohio, page A4):6

Andrew Brown Hinshaw of Tryon, North Carolina died May 4, 1997 in Spartanburg, South Carolina.  He was born in Birmingham, Michigan and was educated in the Birmingham schools before moving to Bloomfield Hills.  He graduated from Cranbrook Academy and the University of Michigan.  He was a veteran of WWII having served in the U.S. Army in 1st Rangers.  Mr. Hinshaw joined DeSoto in sales in 1949 and remained with Chrysler until 1966 when he obtained a Dodge Franchise in Cincinnati, Ohio.  He moved to Tryon, NC in 1986.  Mr. Hinshaw was an Episcopalian and was confirmed at Christ Church, Cranbrook, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan in 1935.  Surviving are his wife, Lois Meyer Hinshaw; a son, Andrew B. Hinshaw, Jr., of Cincinnati, Ohio; two daughters, Lillian K. Simpson of Fairfield, Ohio; and Julie A. Hinshaw of Cincinnati, Ohio; one brother, Robert Hinshaw of Yazoo City, Miss.  Also surviving are five grandchildren and one great-grandson.  Memorial services will be held in the Congregational Church of Christ, Tryon, North Carolina.  Memorials may be made to the Polk County Chapter of the American Cancer Society, PO Box 4, Tryon, NC 28782 or to your favorite charity.
