Joseph E Hines according to census information is a white male that was born in Virginia in 1813-1814.He is married to Eliza Katlin, (her name is on son’s death certificate), who is a black female born in Virginia in or about 1820.
-no marriage records can be found for them, or birth records-no records for anything that even proves that they were in Virginia other than census records from Ohio. Children are all classified as Mulatto until they are married and then white.
1850 Ohio Census, Green twp., Gallia County:
Joseph E., Eliza, Jane, Thomas, Riley, George, John, (they are twins), Elizabeth, Martha, & Mary (they are twins). Allen is missing, was born in Ohio in 1847.
1860 Ohio Census, Van Buren twp., Shelby County:
Joseph, Eliza, children: Thomas, Andrew (I believe this is John) his twin George, Emma (who may be Elizabeth), Mary (her twin is gone), Ellen (believe this may be son, Allen, that is missing in 1850’s census, born in 1847), Joseph and Warner.
Jane, Riley & Martha are missing
1870 Ohio Census, Van Buren twp., Shelby County:
Joseph, Allen, Warner, Mary.
Eliza is gone, presumed she has died. Thomas is gone; Emma Elizabeth is married to William Rhodes. He is living beside the Hines family but wife’s name is Margaret.
Draft records show George in Shelby County, Riley and Thomas in Xenia. Allen serves in the war in the Calvary.
Cannot find any information after 1870’s or before 1850’s on family members.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated on finding information.
