A marriage license was issued for John Ballard Hinshaw & Vianna Hipp (Mar 8 1881),13 but no completed marriage record/return is known to exist in government records.  According to family folklore, John Ballard Hinshaw intended to marry Vianna until he found out her child had been born out of wedlock and so he cancelled the wedding, saying he wasn't going to marry a "green skirted round heels".1

Note that Laura had been shown in the 1880 census as a servant in John Ballard Hinshaw's household.2  She was 26 years younger than John.2  

John was a fiddle player of some repute in the area where he lived.  Some old newspaper accounts from the Sharp County (Arkansas) Register, a local newspaper, tell of soirees where he provided the music.  Also, the account of the birth of his first daughter says he "grabbed his fiddle and began to play 'The Girl I Left Behind Me'".  John was a well-known blacksmith and is said to have been a favorite of Jesse James and his gang.1
