In 1944, son Clyde Herbert Hinshaw wrote the following sketch of Charity Shouse's family:18

A Brief of the Shouse Family as I knew Them for Preservation in the Family Bible

My Grandfather was named John Shouse and was a large man, and married Sarah Loucinda Rollfe, and came to Missouri from Indiana, about the time of the Civil War.  Grandmother was a very small woman, and I remember her well.  Grandfather died before I remember him.  To them these children were born:
Elizebeth, died in infancy.  
Bernard Vanhorn, died in early manhood.  
Racheal, single all her life. Died at age 83, at my father's house, and I was present -- about 1941.  
Henry Harrison, lived to about 70 years and married Mattie Hinshaw, my father's sister.  
Levi Rollfe, died as a young man.  
Rebecca, married John Morris, first--then Sterling Cochran, the second time, of Oldham neighborhood--but left no issue.  She was a school teacher in early womanhood, and had but one arm, was a fine character.  
Charity, married my Father, and raised a large family.  
Elmer Ellsworth, married Gregory from Cole County, Missouri, but they had no children and he is still living--this date at Wilton, Missouri.  
Sarah Jane -- died in infancy.  
David Chilon, the youngest-- married a Morris, in Callaway County and taught school for a number of years in the rural schools in South Boone County and then moved to Jefferson City, where he died about 1938 of ... They raised a large family, of which I have no contact.
