Norway Tidings Vol. 3, No. 9, September 1889.-"David Hinman...served as Captain in the Revolutionary war, and in the year 1788 as near as we learn came to Norway... in 1793 he built the first saw mill in town. The mill lasted but a few years. David had six childrn, viz., Amelia, Lewis, Elihue, Hannah, Andrew and David, Jr. The three first married in Conn., and came to Norway about the time their father settled here. Amelia married Timothy Johnson in 1788.... Lewis married Triphena Johnson of Southbury, Conn., in 1788. After coming to Norway he settled near his father, as also did Elihue. Lewis Hinman was drowned about the year 1807....His widow afterwards married Andrew Hinman. The family before 1810 went west stopping in Hamilton Co., Ohio, for a time, but finally located in Switzerland Co., eastern Indiana, where some of their descendants still live. Arnold, a son of Lewis was an intelligent man and a fine penman, as some old letters in our possession prove. Triphena wife of Lewis and Andrew Hinman died in 1838. Elihue Hinman's wife, history says was the first person that died in town, and is doubtless buried in our village cemetery. We have no further information concerning Elihue or his family, save an item in a letter from John Cadman to Johnson Smith, dated Leroy, NY, Jan. 19th 1823, which says, 'It has pleased Providence to visit with its afflicting rod the family of Elihue Hinman and deprived him of a beloved companion and them of a tender parent,' so we conclude that he remarried after the death of his first wife and removed to western New York, where one of his parents also died as noted."
