I have always seen that this William married Virginia (unknown) and had children Samuel 1857, Griff W 1861, William J 1864, and John M 1867.
However, that is from an 1870 census entry for an "M G Hinds" in Madison Co AR. The entry actually says "Hinsly", and is Marshall Gilmore Hensley of TN.

The Kay Lamb book gives his wife as Talitha (unknown) c1845 MO, with children:
1 Elizabeth F c1860 MO
2 Charles A c1862 MO
3 Sarah M c1868 MO
4 Ladonia c1870 MO
5 Richard Y c1872 MO
6 Samuel c1873 MO
7 Minerva c1877 MO
8 Mary J c1878 MO

I found the 1880 census entry for that family. William Hinds is shown age 42, born AR, both parents born in MO. Since the age is off by 5 years, and the parents' birthplaces are wrong, that must be a different William Hinds. (Unless, of course the census dates and places are wrong. Talitha's parents are shown both born in TN. I suppose it's possible that the places for William and Talitha were transposed.)
