Agreement made April 3, 1869 and days following.  G. W. N. Stovall, party of the first part, will attempt to collect compensation from the U.S. Government for services rendered in a Home Guard raised under an order of Gen. R. H. Milroy issued Feb. 1st, 1865.  In the event that he succeeds he will pay to each Private ten dollars, each Corporal and C.Q.M. fifteen dollars, to each Sergeant twenty dollars and to each Lieutenant and member of the Committee or Company Court twenty five dollars.  The others, party of the second part, agree to aid in any way by issuing powers of attorney and all such services.  In case of failure of either party to perform as agreed to, each party agrees to pay the other the full sum of one hundred seventy five dollars.

On Oct 1 1867 in Jackson County, Alabama Probate Court, John G. Sanders was appointed guardian of George W., Mary, M. F., & Martha Hinshaw, heirs of Joseph.15  It seems that the Joseph mentioned was probably Mary Ann's father, Joseph Sanders,.16  It is unclear why a guardian would have been appointed - it might be concluded that Jasper and his wife might have died before 1867.16  

Jasper might have also been married to a Georgiana --; see Elizabeth Henshaw #16508 who might be an additional child.
