Re: Martha Bright married William Hines in SC 1779
The only info I found that might help - very vague:

Frederick County, MD 1790 Census
John Hines, Martin Hines, Phillip Hines
However, if these were German immigrants, as many were '
in Frederick County, then the name could be any variation including Johannes Heinz etc -
In the same county in 1800 is listed Martin and Philip but
not John - assume he moved or deceased.
