Transcribed from the book "History of Warrick County" by Goodspeed, Chicago: Goodspeed Bros., 1885, submitted by Judy.
"James Hinman, one of the oldest and most esteemed of Warrick County's farmers, was born December 9, 1800, in Ohio County, Ky., being the eldest of the ten children of Samuel and Nancy (Hedges) Hinman, who were from New York and Maryland respectively. In the year 1814, two years before Indiana became a State, the family removed to what is now Warrick County , entering a half-section of land two miles south of the present site of Boonville. After a number of years they removed to the northwestern part of the county, in both placed participating in all the hardships and inconveniences of pioneer life.
The father, years after, made his home with a daughter in Pike County , where he died in December, 1861. He was twice married, his first wife dying in 1819, and his second wife, formerly Miss Hudson, preceding his death several years. James Hinman was reared to manhood in Warrick County , which has been the scene of his life's labor, in which hard work, frugality and enterprise have formed important factors. Life has been a success with him as he now owns an excellent farm of 230 acres, and what is far better, he has won hosts of warm and true friends and but few or no enemies. Mr. Hinman cast his first Presidential ballot for Gen. Jackson and believing good old-fashioned Democracy to be good enough for him, has steadily and faithfully been an advocate of the best principles of that party.
February 15, 1821 , he united with Mary Hudson in marriage and ten
children blessed them, all living to be married, but four now dead.
Although advanced in years, Mr. Hinman is hale and hearty, and takes an
active part in the continued development of his place. His second wife
is Mrs. Agnes ( Wilson ) Fuller."
