Born Oct 26 1803, Chatham County, North Carolina.1,2,4  

He married Elizabeth White, May 30 1829, Lawrence County, Indiana.1,5,6,7  Elizabeth was born Apr 3 1810, Indiana.2,8  

Elizabeth might have been a daughter of William White.9  In the 1820 census, living two households away from John's parents and family was the household of William White.10  

Four years earlier, on Apr 20 1823, Elizabeth's sister, Mary "Polly" White, had married Arthur D. Hastings in Lawrence County, Indiana.1,6  Arthur Hastings was apparently close to John's family as they named one of their sons Arthur D. Hinshaw,2 and Arthur Hastings later became guardian of their daughter Elizabeth3 (see below).  

John and family were shown in the 1830 census, Lawrence County, Indiana:11

John Henshaw household:
1 male age 20-30 (John).
1 female [sic] under age 5 (son John).
1 female age 20-30 (wife Elizabeth).
1 female age 60-70 (mother Mary).
4 persons total in household.
Living next door in 1830 was a single John White, age 15-20,11 possibly Elizabeth's brother.9  

John and family were shown in the 1840 census, Martin County, Indiana:12

John Henshaw household:
2 males under age 5 (sons Arthur and William).
1 male age 5-10 (son John).
1 male age 20-30 (probably William Hinshaw #2256).
1 male age 30-40 (John).
1 female age 30-40 (wife Elizabeth).
1 female age 60-70 (mother Mary).
7 persons total in household.
1 person employed in agriculture.

John and family were shown in the 1850 census (Aug 23 1850), Micheltree Township, Martin County, Indiana, as follows:13

John Henshaw, age 40 [unclear], born in North Carolina; farmer; $3000 real estate.
Elizabeth Henshaw, age 40, born in Indiana.
William H. Henshaw, age 18, born in Indiana.
Arthur D. Henshaw, age 13, born in Indiana.
John A. Henshaw, age 10, born in Indiana.
Elizabeth J. Henshaw, age 1, born in Indiana.
Susan Nest [unclear], age 9, born in Indiana.

Elizabeth died Sep 11 1851, age 41y 5m 8d.8  

He then married Sarah Ann Dilly14 [Sarah Ann Dilley8, Sarah Ann Proctor1], Aug 8 185214, Martin County, Indiana14.  Sarah was born Aug 8 1814, Madison County, Kentucky.1,8,15,16  

Sarah had been previously married to James Dilly/Dilley,1,8 by whom she had six children.8  

John Hinshaw died about 18533 [18548].  

John's new bride (of probably less than one year) was left widowed with five children.  On Oct 25 1853, Martin County, Indiana, Sarah Ann Hinshaw was named guardian of Adrian Hinshaw, heir of John Hinshaw.3  On Dec 20 1854, Martin County, Indiana, Arthur D. Hastings was named guardian of Elizabeth Jane Hinshaw, minor heir of John Hinshaw3 (apparently daughter Elizabeth was sent to be raised by her uncle Arthur Hastings, and Adrian apparently remained with Sarah, but it is unknown where the remaining children were raised).  

Widow Sarah and family were shown in the 1860 census, Lawrence County, Indiana:15,17

Sarah A. Henshaw, age 45, born in Kentucky; widow; $2000 real estate; $700 personal property.
Rebecca Dilly, age 22, born in Indiana.
John Dilly, age 19, born in Indiana; farm laborer; attended school.
Martha Dilly, age 14, born in Indiana; attended school.
Stephen Dilly, age 10, born in Indiana; attended school.
Adrian Henshaw, age 6, born in Indiana.

Widow Sarah and family were again shown in the 1880 census (Jun 9 1880), Lawrence County, Indiana:16

Hinshaw, Sarah, age 64, born in Kentucky; father born in Ireland; mother born in Kentucky; widow; keeping house.
Dilly, Mattie A., daughter, age 34, born in Indiana; parents born in Kentucky; dress making.
Dilly, Stephen, son, age 31, born in Indiana; parents born in Kentucky; laborer.

Sarah died Apr 26 1882, Lawrence County, Indiana; age 67y 8m 18d.8  Sarah is buried next to her son Adrian.8  

Note that the first wife of this John, Elizabeth White, is buried with a gravestone engraved "Consort of John Hinshaw Jun." (Junior), and the wife of John Hinshaw #2276 has a gravestone engraved "Consort of John Hinshaw Sen." (Senior).  Both are buried in the same cemetery.8  Therefore it has been deduced that this John was the son of John and Mary/Polly Hinshaw #2276.  

A biographical sketch of daughter Elizabeth Jane Hinshaw was published in the 1889 "Biographical and Historical Souvenir for the Counties of Clark, Crawford, Harrison, Floyd, Jefferson, Jennings, Scott, and Washington, Indiana"18 - see: http://books.google.com/books?id=TBvVAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA243#v=onepage

John was very probably closely related to (probably a brother of) William Hinshaw #2256,9 who was also born in North Carolina and settled in Lawrence County, Indiana.
