I am looking for any information on Thomas Hines (Hynes) who immigrated to the United States from Ireland. (arrival date unknown) I have no info on his parents but family lore says that Thomas'parents were James and Anne.
What I do know is that Thomas married Katharine Stephan (Stephens, Stevens) in Zanesville Ohio on August 5, 1849. He is in the 1850 Census with Katherine (born in New York) and one child, Mary J. He had one other children while in Ohio: John D and then moved to Iowa where he had James (my great grandfather) Margaret, Elizabeth and Catherine. He ended up in Kansas where the remainder of his children were born:William, Clara, Ella, Annie and Charles.
I cannot confirm his death date...somewhere around 1893 but I do believe it was in Kansas. Katharine died sometime after 1915 I believe in Kansas as well.
Any info would be most welcome. I do not know when Thomas came here, nor where he came from in Ireland.
If anyone can provide any information from Ohio, Iowa or Kansas, that would be great!
