Biographical sketches of John and Mary were published in the 1894 "Portrait & Biographical Record of Randolph County, Indiana":2

MRS. MARY E. HINSHAW, who resides in Washington Township, Randolph County, Indiana, was born here November 12, 1858, and is a daughter of Isaac and Mary (Davis) Ozbun.  Her parents were born in North Carolina, and were of English descent.  With their respective families they came to Henry County, Indiana, where they were married in 1833.  The father taught school for several years and also successfully engaged in farming.  The family numbered five sons and three daughters, viz: John, a farmer of Kansas; Isaac, an agriculturist; Jonathan; Hulda; Joseph, a Kansas farmer; Ruth, deceased; Harvey, who follows farming; and Mary E., the subject of this biography.  The mother of this family died in 1865, and was buried in Cherry Grove Cemetery.  She was a member of the Society of Friends, as is her husband, who is still living on the old homestead.  In March 1879, Mary E. Ozbun became the wife of John C. Hinshaw, who was born September 23, 1844, and was the son of Timothy and Sarah (Wright) Hinshaw, who were of English and Irish lineage.  The father died in February 1881, and the Mother in February 1889.  Their children were: David M., who died at seventeen years; John C.; Armenous, a farmer; Melcena, who was the wife of Ed Brown; and Ruth, who was the wife of Joseph Ruby.  

J. C. Hinshaw was reared on a farm until eighteen years of age, and enlisted in an Indiana regiment for the three years service during the late war.  After his return he was married, March 1, 1871, to Josephine Middleton, who died in 1873.  After remaining single for five years he wedded Miss Ozbun and bought her to his home.  He was extensively engaged in the breeding of thoroughbred hogs, and was the owner of a fine farm of 280 acres of land, which yielded him a golden tribute in return for the care and labor he bestowed upon it.  In his business he was successful, for he carefully attended to all details and was enterprising and progressive.  By his first union Mr. Hinshaw had a daughter, Eva R. Hinshaw.  By the second marriage were born three children: Pearl J., Carl T. and Mitchell A. Hinshaw.  The father died April 3, 1891, respected by all who knew him, and his remains were interred in Fountain Park Cemetery, where a fine monument has been erected to his memory.  He was a prominent and active worker in the Society of Friends and helped to build their house of worship in this neighborhood.  Mr. Hinshaw was one of the leading men of Washington Township and one of the most highly respected and successful farmers of the county.  His life was well and worthily spent, and his example is deserving of emulation.  He left his widow one of the most desirably located and finest and most tastefully arranged farms in the township.  Mrs. Hinshaw still manages the property.  She is a woman of good business ability and is a highly respected member of society.  She is an active worker in the Society of Friends, and, like her husband, delights in doing good.

John and Mary are buried in the same plot in Fountain Park Cemetery together with son Mitchell and his wife Maude and grandson-in-law James Earl Bales.19
