Thank you for replying back. I have made the connections, and Uriah Hines and Hugh Hines are in fact the same. I have also made contact with a cousin in NS that is descended from one of Uriah's sons. I'm excited to learn about more family. Do you have more information about Nathan Wallace Hines? I'm curious as to why he would have traveled to US, but then went back. I've been researching for a while about the descendants of Uriah Hines and in MA, there was only 1, his daughter, Phyllis, my grandmother.
I look forward to hearing from you again.
