(Ira Hinshaw)1,2,3,4,5,6,7 (Joe Hinshaw)8 (Ted Hinshaw)8 Born 4-24-1812, Chatham County, North Carolina.1,2,3,4,8,9,10
At Cane Creek MM on 9-5-1812, Ira was "received by request" of his father, Jesse.2

In 1847 Ira Hinshaw and wife were among the initial members of the congregation of Freedom's Hill Church in the Cane Creek area of North Carolina now known as Snow Camp. The church was part of the Wesleyan Methodists, a new denomination that left the Methodist Episcopal Church because of their pro-slavery agenda. Freedom Hill's Church took a strong anti-slavery stand, for which its members withstood considerable persecution (so its reasonable to assume Ira and his family were likely strongly anti-slavery and might also have been persecuted). The original Freedom Hill's Wesleyan Methodist Church was removed and is today restored on the campus of Southern Wesleyan University in the town of Central, South Carolina.13
