Levi Hinshaw1,7 [Levi Henshaw2,11].

Born about 1821, Tennessee.1,2,3  (Warren County, Tennessee).12  

Note: Levi's approximate birth year and place were consistently reported in two different censuses as c1821, Tennessee.  However his parents reportedly did not move to Tennessee until 1830.  So in spite of the two consistent censuses it seems more likely that Levi was probably born in North Carolina.13  Note that Levi was not able to read or write, so his birth information was very likely only held by memory and probably unwritten13 (and thus he himself might have mistaken his own birth information).13  

In 1830 Levi moved with his father to Franklin County, Tennessee.1  

He married ---, before 1843, Tennessee.1  (wife's name currently not known).  

His wife died before Nov 1 1850.  Levi's first wife apparently died before 1850, as she was not shown with the family in the 1850 census.5  

Levi Henshaw (apparently widowed) was shown in the 1850 census (Nov 1 1850), Pulaski County, Missouri, living in the household of his sister and brother-in-law, Charles A. & Elizabeth (Hinshaw) Pippin:2

Also living in Pulaski County, Missouri in 1850 was the family of John A. Hinshaw #10174,14 who was probably closely related.13  

He then married Permelia Christeson1,15 [Pamela Christeson16], Missouri1,15.  Permelia, daughter of Elisha Christeson & Agnes Drake, was born about 1828, Kentucky.16  (Feb 9 1826).3,15,17,18  (Elisha Christeson & Agnes Ballard).1  (Elisha Christenson & Agnes Geneva Ballard).19
