Catherine Henchaw, age 90, born in North Carolina; domestic; cannot read or write.
Living next door in 1860 was the family of a widow Anna Coward, age 9014 (probably Elija's widowed mother).15  Also living nearby in 1860 was the family of Rebecca Jane (Hinshaw) Walker #17033.16  

Note the elderly Catherine Henchaw in the 1860 census above - it seems likely that she was probably Elizabeth's grandmother (or possibly mother).15

This *might* be the same as Elizabeth Hinshaw #253415 who was born about 1828 (her brother was also married in Hawkins County, Tennessee).  However... The mother of Elizabeth Hinshaw #2534 was named Roda/Rhody, not Catherine, so if the Catherine Henchaw shown in the 1860 census above was indeed this Elizabeth's mother then this Elizabeth would not be the same as Elizabeth Hinshaw #2534.  

This also *might* be the same as Elizabeth Hinchey #10157.15
