      6232 Ziba Hinkle born about 1780 Lancaster County, Pennsylvania; died April 2, 1870 in Dayton, Ohio; married (date, place, and name of wife not recorded). Five (5) children, Identified. Ziba Hinkle was a youth of twelve or thirteen years when his father was killed by the Indians at Covalt Station and was required to shift for himself, as did other older children. The youngest child was bound out to a neighbor, for the mother in order to survive, remarried and removed to Indiana where she reared another family. She returned only once to visit her children in Ohio.Ziba, of necessity, soon became a moan and joined with the other settlers in fighting the Indians. Many hardships were related to his grandsons, George W. and James Wesley Hinkle. Among these hardships related was in bedding down in the swamps of Northern Indian and Ohio by cutting a pile of brush on which he spread his blanket. Another was the difficulty of helping a wounded companion, who was shot in the ankle, to travel to keep him from falling into the hands of the Indians. Apparently this campaign against the Indians was about 1848 with headquarters at Fort Wayne, Indiana.Ziba Hinkle, a farmer, enlisted in the War of 1812-14 serving in the company of the 1st Regiment (Sutton's Ohio Militia of which his brother Asa was Captain.) He also saw service in an Indian war, being stationed at Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1848.Abigail (Hays) Cook made application for widow's pension June 21, 1880 based on the 1812-14 war service of Ziba Hinkle. In her petition she stated Jonathan Cook had deserted her; that she was living in Dayton, Ohio; that Ziba had enlisted April 15, 1814 in the 74th Maryland regiment; that he had received a land grant of 809 acres about 1852; that he died April 2, 1870. Witnesses, Caleb Parker and Joseph Seitz. Seitz, age 60 stated Ziba Hinkle had died in his home. No information of pension being granted. Place of service and other facts in error.
