Descendants of Jesse Hinshaw and Abigail MarshallJesse Hinshaw, a Quaker, was born about 1720 in County Tyrone, Ireland, married Abigail Marshall in 1745, and came to America in 1769. They settled at Cane Creek, then part of Orange County. This area became part of Chatham County in 1771, and Alamance County in 1849. Jesse died in 1797, Abigail in 1806.
The Hinshaws are one of the best-documented families I've worked on, and I've done very little original research on this line beyond checking the 19th-century census records. Please see the Hinshaw Family Association site for MUCH more information.

Children of Jesse Hinshaw and Elizabeth Hinshaw
Elizabeth Hinshaw was the daughter of Benjamin and Elizabeth Hinshaw.
Jesse and Mary were disowned from Cane Creek meeting in 1791 and reinstated in 1794. Both "condemned their misconduct".
Jesse was disowned again in 1824 for marriage out of unity less than 12 months after his wife's death.
Third GenerationChildren of Benjamin Hinshaw
Uriah Solomon Hinshaw (1822-1888) m. Sarah (Sally) Pickard (1820-1891 )

This Benjamin has been confused in some family histories with a different Benjamin Hinshaw of very nearly the same age, who married Sarah Vestal. We don't know the name of our Benjamin's wife, or if there were other children besides these two. Daughter Sarah is listed on the Hinshaw Family Association's web site. Here we follow the line of Uriah Solomon Hinshaw.

*Charlie's birthdate is given in family records as 28 Feb 1869, but both Solomon and Susan are still living with their respective parents in the 1870 census, and Charles listed as age 9 in the 1880 census, suggesting that he was actually born in 1871. Was Alice his twin?
