A biographical sketch of Nathan Hinshaw was published in the 1976 "History Of Lawndale, Martin, And Anchor Townships And The Villages Of Colfax And Anchor":18

Nathan Hinshaw was born at Stout's Grove, McLean County, March 15, 1831.  After he left home, he lived at Mosquito Grove, Allin Twp. McLean Co. for 16 years.  In 1874 he moved to Anchor Township.  There he bought 320 acres.  

The 1879 McLean County History has a short biography of Nathan and states that he built a cottage and barn on his farm.  His place was in Sec. 11 where August Brandt lived for many years.  He also ownd 160 acres where Harry Stein lived.  He was a farmer and stock raiser and in 1879 his address was Garda.  That post office was about one and one half miles west of his home.  He was the youngest son of Simon and Rebecca and he was married four times.  

He married Philura Endicott, Jan. 3,1858.  She was born in Posey Co., IN, Feb.15, 1839 and died in 1867.  They had 3 daughters.  Mary married John Deal in 1881.  They moved to Newton, Iowa in 1906, and were parents of 4 children.  

Malinda, b. Jan. 4, 1861 married John Meyers in 1878.  They had 2 daughters, Violet and Iva and moved to Springfield, Neb.  Malinda died in 1897.  The 3rd daughter, Emma b. Feb.15, 1864 m. Thomas Moots, Jan.25, 1882.  They had 3 children, Bert, 1885-1911, Mabel Moots 1887-1972, and Ernest, now living at Bellflower.  Thomas died in 1930 and Emma in 1935.  

Nathan Hinshaw married Huldah Neal in 1868, and she died 4 years later.  They had one daughter, Florence, (1869-1947).  She married Dixon LeRoy Withers and they had 4 children, Stella, Cecil, Leroy and Francis.  They lived in the Anchor and Colfax neighborhoods.  They are buried at Prairie Chapel Cemetery.  

In 1875, Nathan married Sarah Ayres Warrick.  She died in 1884.  They were the parents of 3 sons, James Arthur (Artie), b. 1876.  He married Johanna Foss of Ford Co. and they left Anchor and went to Kansas City.  They had 2 children, Ralph and Esther.  The twin sons, Emory W. and Earnest were born Oct. 1,1880.  Emory married Edith Hinshaw in 1901 and they moved to Eugene, Oregon.  Earnest Warren lived at Fairbury, IL.  

Feb.18, 1886, Nathan Hinshaw married Nancy Schlingliff of Ford Co.  They were the parents of 2 sons, Benjamin Franklin b. May 11, 1887 and Nathan Pearl born Oct. 11, 1888.  Both of these sons lived at Bellflower.  Frank never married and died Feb. 9, 1968.  Pearl is also deceased, but he had a son George and family who lived at Bellflower.  

Nathan died in March, 1895 and his wife Nancy in 1914.  They are buried at Prairie Chapel Cemetery.  He had divided his land among his children, and it has all been sold.  None of his family are left in the Anchor area.  

There were other Hinshaws who came to McLean County.  George Hinshaw, was born in 1776 in North Carolina and was a great uncle of John and Nathan.  He moved his family to Hinshaw's Grove in 1827 near what became Bloomington.  Many of his descendants are living now in the Bloomington area.  

The eight brothers and sisters of John and Nathan, who came with their parents to Stout's Grove near Danvers, also have many descendants in McLean County.  The Hinshaw Cemetery was on a corner of the original farm.  That farm about 3 miles from Danvers is still in the possession of a member of the Hinshaw family.  

Mrs. Fern Hinshaw, a granddaughter of John Hinshaw, and who had the family Bible helped supply information about this family.  Mrs. Mabel Morris, a granddaughter of Nathan, helped with that family story.  The "Hinshaw and Henshew History" written by Wm. Hinshaw and edited by Milo Custer and printed in 1911 was used as the source of the early story.
