History of Fayette Counties, Indiana published by B. F. Bowen & Co. Indianapolis, IN 1917 c/o Ingenweb: "Marshall Hinchman, Jr., a well-known Fairview township farmer, was born on a farm in Union township, in the adjoining county of Rush, and has lived in that vicinity all his life. He was born on November 10, 1875, son of John Harvey and Amanda (Moffett) Hinchman, the former of whom was also born in Union township, Rush county, and the latter in Fairview township, this county, and the latter of whom is still living, making her home in Howard county, this state, which has been her place of residence for the past eighteen or twenty years. John Harvey Hinchman was a son of John and Margaret Hinchman, Virginians, who came out to this part of Indiana many years ago and settled on a tract of "Congress land" in Union township, Rush county, about a mile and a half west of the place where their grandson, the subject of this sketch now lives. There John H. Hinchman was born and reared and there he remained, continuously engaged in farming, until about 1899, when he moved to Howard county, where his death occurred on March 8, 1914, and where his widow is still living. She was born, Amanda Moffett, in Fairview township, this county, daughter of Andrew and Rachel (Rees) Moffett, the former of whom, one of the pioneers of Fayette county, came here with his parents from Pennsylvania back in the days of the early settlement of this region. Marshall Hinchman, Jr., grew up on the paternal farm in Rush county and about thirteen years ago began farming on his own account on a tract of rented land in the neighborhood of his old home in Union township, along the line of Fayette county. In 1913 he bought the farm on which he now lives, in Fairview township, this county, two and one-half miles north of Glenwood, and there has since made his home, he and his family being very pleasantly situated there. Mr. Hinchman has a well-improved farm of fifty-seven acres and is doing quite well in his farming operations. He is a Republican and gives close attention to local political affairs, but has not been a seeker after office. On March 10, 1896, Marshall Hinchman, Jr. was united in marriage to Sarah Carr, who was born in Warren county, Ohio, daughter of John and Melinda (Hanna) Carr, and who jived in that county until she was fourteen years of age, when she came to this county to make her home with her aunt, Mrs. Green Thompson, and was living there when she married Mr. Hinchman. John Carr was born in Butler county, Ohio, August 23, 1849, son of Guy A. and Elizabeth (Blue) Carr, the former a native of Pennsylvania and the latter of New Jersey, and after his marriage made his home in Warren county, Ohio, until his wife died about twenty-five years ago. He is now making his home with Mr. and Mrs. Hinchman. His wife, Melinda Hanna, was born at Westchester, in Butler county, Ohio, a daughter of Richard and Rebecca (Tanner) Hanna, the former of whom lost his life while serving as a soldier of the Union during the Civil War. For many years John Carr has been a plasterer and contractor and continues to follow that vocation. Mr. and Mrs. Hinchman have three children, Frank, Don and Josephine. They are members of the Christian church, as is their eldest son, and take an earnest interest in church work. Frank Hinchman was graduated from the Fairview township high school in 1916 and then took a course in the Normal School at Muncie. He is now teaching in the Moffett school in Fairview township."
