Son of Abel and Nancy Hinshaw, was born in Randolph county, North Carolina August 21, 1819, died in Randolph, Indiana, December 31, 1900, age 81 years, 4 months and 10 days.  When eight years of age he moved with his parents to Highland county, Ohio, and about two years latter [sic] came to Randolph county where he resided the remainder of his life.  He was a member of the Friend's Church from his early boyhood.  He was married to Marry J.
