Mildred Hinshaw was born on September 17, 1908 in Crosby N.D.  Her family moved to a homestead near Westby, MT. in 1913.  On her 10th birthday, the Ed Hinshaw family moved back to their former home in Danvers, IL.  She graduated from Sibley H.S. in Sibley, IL in 1926 and attended Illinois State Normal University for one year.
