JOHN W. HINES, Ohio County, is a son of William H. Hines, a native of Kentucky, a boot-maker by profession; married Hester Ann Rone in 1840. He died in 1863, leaving seven children, of whom our subject, John W., is the second. William H. Hines, in 1861, entered the Federal army, with the rank of sergeant in Company B, Seventeenth Kentucky Volunteer Infantry, served one year, and was discharged on account of ill health; afterward joined the Twelfth Kentucky Cavalry, in which he rose to the rank of first lieutenant, and while in service died at Louisville, Ky., in 1863. Simeon Hines, the grandfather of John W., was a native of Virginia. He died in Ohio County, Ky., in 1872, in the seventy-seventh year of his age. John W. Hines was born May 22, 1848, in Woodbury, Butler Co., Ky. During the absence of his father in the war, and after his death, until 1866, young Hines supported the family by his labor. After his mother's second marriage, he worked on the farm by the month and drove team for two years; then carried mail from Hartford to Cloverport on the Ohio River, and between Hartford and Point Pleasant on Green River, for one year. In 1870 he raised a crop of corn. January 15, 1871, he married Alice M., daughter of Philip and Martha Davenport. He then carried mail another year on the same route; then rented land and farmed one year, and in the fall of 1872 bought 100 acres, which he sold five years later, and bought 119 acres where he now resides; has sixty-five acres well fenced and in cultivation. He gives his exclusive attention to his farm and his stock, which is, probably, the best to be found anywhere in his vicinity. Mr. Hines has accumulated his property by good management and close attention to business, but attributes much of his success to the assistance of his wife. They are the parents of two sons, Vernon N. and Luther P., aged, respectively, ten and six years. Mrs. Hines is a member of the Baptist faith. Mr. Hines is in practice on the side of temperance, and is a Democrat, but occasionally votes for a Republican if he thinks him to be the best man for the place. Mr. Hines' mother, Mrs. Hester Ann (Rone) Hines, is still living.
