Biography

James Walker Hinkley was born in about the year 1796

With the info pulled from the 1840 census we can see he had his wife Martha (Sinclair?), a mother or mother-in-law, 1 son under 5, 2 sons 5-9, 2 sons 10-14, 2 daughters under 5, 2 daughters 5-9, and 1 daughter 10-14. 1 daughter of the 10 children has been added so far.

The 1850 census lists son Amos in 1821, son Samuel A in 1824, daughter Mary L in 1828, daughter Wealthy in 1832, son Clement in 1834, daughter Leonise in 1836, son Daniel in 1838, son James W in 1840, daughter Louvisa in 1844, and son Alonzo W in 1846.

By the 1860 census James W goes by "Winslow", Louvisa goes by "Louicy S", and Alonzo W goes by "Warren".

By the 1870 census Mary L becomes "Mary S Rokes" with daughter "Flora A Rokes" born about 1867 and son "George H Foss" born about 1862.

Son Clement's death record lists his mother as Martha Sinclair.

To further add to the twisted tale, Leonise dies with the name "Leonice W" and her mother is listed as "Marthe Sinctar" with Leonice's spouse being Josiah N Sawyer.

On August 6, 1875 he passed away in Jonesport Maine secure in the knowledge that he was able to keep the same name from birth till death.
