Henshaw, Margaret, head-of-household, age 63, born Mar 1837 in Illinois; father born in Illinois; mother born in Tennessee; widow, married 42 years; 4 children, 4 living; farmer; owns farm; cannot read or write.
Henshaw, Nancy E., daughter, age 39, born May 1861 in Illinois; parents born in Illinois; single.

McDaniel, S.J., female, cousin, age 51, born Aug 1849 in Illinois; parents born in Illinois; single.
Note son "Boman" above is a bit mysterious: he was listed without the usual "---" notation that was otherwise normally used in this census to indicate a continuation of the previous surname (his actual surname cannot be determined with certainty from the census).  He was listed as "son", which normally would mean son of the head-of-household (Margaret), except the census shows his father was born in Kentucky, which doesn't match with James Henshaw.  It is possible that perhaps this was a child of daughter Nancy Ellen.12  

This is probably the same as James Hinshaw #722.  Note that living next door to the family of James Hinshaw #722 in 1850 was the family of a Joseph & Catherine McDannel,13 possibly Margaret's brother or cousin.12  Also in 1850, living just two houses away from James's elder brother, Hugh Henshaw, was the family of Margaret (then age 13) and her parents and siblings.10
