  • Notes 
    • (Research):The Following description of conditions surrounding the early lifeof Joseph from his granddaughter, Mary E. Hinkle, of West Middletown,Ohio recieved by Miss Curry, Henckel
      Family Historian, in part:

      "Grandfather {Joseph Hinkle II} would often relate the harships heendured when a boy. He married before he was quite 20 years of age{ to Elizabeth DeBolt, a daughter of a neighbor, not quite 15 yearsold}.

      They married on the 6th day of December 1806. In the evening theywent to the mouth of the Little Miami River, and danced on the ice.When they went to housekeeping, all they had, they haul on a sled.They had a ten-gallon kettle that had been in a fire and had neitherlegs nor bail. They would cook meat, bake bread and make coffee inthis kettle.

      Grandfather made three wooden plates and had a penknife - he wouldcut his meat thenpass the knife to his wife to do likewise. He madea bed out of clapboards in one corner of the house and sawed off alarge block of wood for a table. He made three - legged stools, onehe said for company. When they went to bed they could either pulloff their clothes and spread them over them, or slept with their clothes,for they had no covers. When he had saved a little money, he boughtthree plates, three cups and saucers and three knives and forks, alwaysone extra for company and felt he was doing fine.

      He had work for a neighbor to get his ground plowed for his gardenand had to work all day to get use of the hoe". We know that CharlesFrancis and his twin sister Elizabeth Jewell Dickey was raised byJoseph and Elizabeth. I also know that there was an Hinkle/DickeyReunion held in Butler County, Ohio. I have bee researching for theconnection between families. I have found the following so far.

      Lewis Hinkle {Twin} born March 30 1813 in Middletown, Ohio and die December 27 898 in Decatur County, Greenburg, Indiana, fourth childof Joseph and Elizabeth. He married {1} Salome Reid December 23, 1883in Butler County,Ohio, daughter of Rev. William Reid and Sarah Overpeck.She died in 1846, they had five children. He maried Salome's sister{2} Mary Ann Reid May 3, 1846 in Shelby County, Indiana. They hadseven chidren this where the Hinkle Dickey connection began.

      The Oldest of the Lewis and Mary Ann Reid's children was Mary LouiseReed Hinkle was born August 4 1847 near Shelby County, St. Paul, Indianaon December 24, 1866 she married George Sherer Dickey, son of SamuelMiller Dickey, born April 23, 1842 in Preble County, Ohio. The followingexcerpt is taken from a letter from Olive Dickey Gilham, a granddaughterof Lewis Hinkle.

      "Mary Louise Reed Hinkle was born August 4, 847. She married shortlyafter the death her mother in Hamilton, Ohio on December 24, 1866to George Sherer Dickey of near Middletown, Ohio. He had just returnedfrom three year's service in the Union Army. The romancve of thismarriage back in Ohio among her Hinkle Hinkle and Reid relatives,near neighbors and friends of the old pioneer Dickey amcestor whohunted and trapped with Daniel Boone both at theie home in Rowan County,North Carolina and later in Kentucky, is one of the choice traditionsof their children and grasndchildren.

      For the last two years the Hinkles and Dixckeys have held annual reunions.It has become a permnent institution and thy will meet again thisyear at the old Elk Creek Burying groinds in the newly built GrangeHall near by.

      All descendants of Hinkles and Dickeys and the descendants of theold time neighbors of these old families are cordially welcome onthe last Sunday in August of each year." Additionally, a son of Lewisand Mary Ann, James William Thomas McMullin Hinkl born 1852 near StPaul Shelby County, Indiana, married Mary Eliza Dickey, a sister ofGeorge S Dickey in Butler County, Ohio.

      The family removed to Matoon Illinois, they had three children,James died in Canada in 1899. He was drowned in Peace River near Edmonton,Alberta on the way to Klondyke gold fields. He was a locomotive engineeron the run between Indianapolis, Indiana and St Louis , Missouri foryears.

      Further Lucinda Hinkle {twin} was born March 30, 1813 in Middletown,Ohio and died August 30, 1905. She married Henry Murphy March 29,1849 in Butler County, Ohio, G Dickey officiating. They had two children.

      6235 Joseph Hinkle, Jr. born April 13, 1787, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania; died July 3, 1881 near Middletown, Butler County, Ohio; married December 6, 1806, Hamilton County, Ohio to Elizabeth DeBolt, daughter of Henry and Mary DeBolt. She was born January 24,1792, Hamilton County, Ohio; died near Middletown, Butler County, Ohio. They were buried in the Astoria Cemetery, Madison Township, Butler County, Ohio about five miles northwest of Middletown.Joseph and Elizabeth Hinkle were the parents of seventeen (17) children. This was considered a relatively large family even for that period, however, when the sixteenth child, a son, died at birth they immediately adopted another child as Charles Francis Hinkle, who died at the age of twenty-one (21). About 1844 they again adopted a child this time a daughter, as Elizabeth Jewell Hinkle, who lived to maturity, married and had descendants.Joseph and Elizabeth settled early in Madison Township, Butler County, Ohio. They appeared here in Census records as follows: 1820 Census with four (4) sons and four (4) daughters; in 1830 Census with (6) sons and six (6) daughters; and in 1850 with four (4) sons (one adopted) and one (1) daughter (adopted). Other information of this family taken from family Bible and letters of descendants.At the time of the marriage of Joseph and Elizabeth Hinkle the now populous state of Ohio was a barren and difficult territory where the settlers were indeed pioneers undergoing the most strenuous hardships to obtain the barest necessities with which to sustain life. The family life of the average settler was frugal to say the least and in addition he had to contend with roving bands of Indians that resented the loss of hunting grounds not only theirs by right of possession but by treaty with William Penn, who had represented the English Crown.The following description of conditions surrounding the early life of Joseph from his granddaughter, Mary E. Hinkle, of West Middletown, Ohio, received by Miss Curry, Henckel Family Historian, on August 8, 1917, in part:“Grandfather (Joseph Hinkle II) would often relate the hardships he endured when a boy.... He married before he was quite 20 years of age (to Elizabeth Debolt, a daughter of a neighbor, not quite 15 years of age).They were married on the 6th day of December 1806.
