The following biography of T.H. Hinshaw appeared in "History of Boone County, Indiana", by Hon. L.M. Crist, 1914:11

T.H. HINSHAW
There is a great deal in being born under a good eye, one that watches and guards off the error and folly that overtake so many young men.  The parents that are able to infuse into their children the spirit of the Spartans -- the spirit that can meet any fate and make the most of the world -- will see their children grow to years of maturity with excellent habits and splendid principles and see them become exemplary citizens.  T.H. Hinshaw, an enterprising young liveryman of Zionsville, Boone county, was fortunate in having intelligent, kind and enterprising parents, who took much pains in his rearing.  He was taught from the start the duties of life, not ordinary instruction, but the higher duties which all owe to each other and to society.  The result has been to give him broad ideas of life and its responsibilities and to fit him for honorable citizenship.  

Mr. Hinshaw was born on the home farm near Carmel, Indiana, January 10, 1883, and is a son of Frank and Anna (Henley) Hinshaw, who live on a farm east of Zionsville, where they are well-known and regarded by all as good citizens.  They have seven children, five sons and two daughters.  Our subject was reared on the home farm where he did his full share of the work when growing to manhood, and he received his education in the common schools of his neighborhood.  When twenty-two years old he married Ida Ortwein, who was born in Boone county, where she was reared and educated.  To this union three children have been born, Mildred, Carleton and Anna.  

Mr. Hinshaw came to Zionsville some time ago and is now proprietor of a large livery, sale and feed barn, doing an extensive business which is constantly growing.  He is well-equipped with good horses and buggies and always carries a good line of feed of all kinds, and his is one of the most popular establishments of its kind in the county, partly because of his energy and foresight and partly because of his honesty and courtesy in dealing with the public.  This has long been a livery and is well-known and popular with the traveling public.  Our subject has remodeled his barn and made numerous improvements of late and everything is kept in proper place and in good shape.  He has new rigs and a standard make automobile.  His barn is one hundred by seventy-five feet, giving abundance of room for the accommodation of eighty horses at one time.  His barn is centrally located, near the depot.  

Politically, Mr. Hinshaw is a Progressive.  Fraternally, he belongs to the Knights of Pythias, and he and his wife are members of the Christian church.
