Hinshaws first came to Orange Co, NC (Thomas in 1765; Jacob in 1768)
Grandfather Jacob died in 1796 in Randolph Co, NC -> other Hinshaws in Randolph in 1790 Census, but William and Jane married in Surry 1795. Brother Jonathan Hinshaw moved to Surry early (land grant 1790). Jane Hamm could have been from Randolph or Surry.

Family of Hinshaw, William


Bob Henshaw, "In 1841 A. Hyder was a teacher and he charged families for teaching their children. There were no schools. In the new source I found a hand written document which was Hyder’s ledger showing William Hinshaw paid the school fees for a Richard Hinshaw ( a new unknown) for Newton Hinshaw and for Jasper Hinshaw. We are quite confident this is the elder William because the younger William in our records would have only been 19 years old and not old enough to have had these three boys in school. Also, if you look at the 1840 census for the elder William, it shows three boys matching these age groups."

Note, also had 3 girls in the 1840 census, Jackson County, Alabama:
1 male age 5-10.
1 male age 10-15.
1 male age 15-20.
1 male age 20-30.
1 male age 60-70 (William).
1 female age 5-10.
1 female age 10-15.
1 female age 15-20.
1 female age 20-30.
1 female age 40-50

These odd childrens' names are found in Newton's in Abbeville District, SC, like "Benjamin Jasper Newton" b.1808 in a line of Newton's from Stafford Co, VA -> Robeson Co, NC -> Abbeville, SC. Some descendants match me and my Roberson cousins.
