and Julietta Hine of whom the subject of
this notice was the third in age, the others

of Dallas, Texas; Anna L., the wife of Charles

Washington Hine was reared on his father's
farm in Ohio and in the public schools of his
native place received his early education. At
the age of eighteen, in 1868, he came to
Texas, stopping at Independence, Washington
county, where he remained a year, working
at the carpenter's trade, when he moved
to Milam county, continuing at his trade until
1872. In the meantime he purchased
land in both this and Bell county and returning
East entered Transylvania University at
Lexington, Kentucky, where he completed
his education after which he come back to
Texas and again took up carpentering and
followed it until his marriage, October 4,
1876. At that date he settled on his Bell
county land and engaged in farming. After
three years' residence in Bell county he
traded his farm there for land adjoining that
previously purchased by him in Milam
county, and moving to this in 1879, he has
continued to reside here since. He has a farm
of nearly 600 acres including what he owns
and controls, 120 acres of which id in a good
state of cultivation and furnished with a superior
class of farm improvements. In addition
to raising the usual quantity of staple
products he gives considerable attention to
live-stock, his cattle herd embracing such
strains as the Durham and Holstein. Mr.
Hine has taken an active interest in/every
thing relating to farming and stock-raising
since settling on the farm and has identified
himself with every enterprise connected with
the welfare of the community in which he
lives. Formerly a Republican in politics he
abandoned that organization on account of
its centralizing and monopolistic tendencies
and on the organization of the Farmers' Alliance
joined that order with which he has
affiliated since. In 1892 he was nominated
and elected County Commissioner.
October 4, 1876, Mr. Hine married Miss
Virginia L. Hill, who was born in Lee county
this State, September 10, 1854, being a
daughter of Green L. and Mary (Lanier) Hill.
Mrs. Hine's father was a native of North
Carolina, her mother a native of Virginia.
Her parents came to Texas soon after the
Texas Revolution and settled in the town of
Bastrop where they lived for many years.
Her father was a planter and before the war
possessed considerable means. He died in
Camp county, this State, July. 2, 1881. He
was twice married, his first wife, the mother
of Mrs. Hine, dying September 26, 1859.
By his two marriages he has sixteen children,
fourteen by his first wife and two by
his last. Mr. and Mrs. Hine have had born
to them the following children: Clarence A.,
born July 12, 1877; Mary C., born November
28, 1881; Anna L., born September 1,
1885; Helen H.. born September 29, 1888;
