I have this data from the US SSDI:
Born 24 Nov 1903
Died Mar 1970
Last Residence: Newberry, Luce Co, MI Zip Code: 49868
Note: SSN 379-09-4365
I believe this is Frank Willard HINES born 24 Nov 1903 in Oconto Co WI to James Almont HINES and Violetta Imogene COLE.
This family comprised at least three sons:
Surname Given Names Date of Birth
Hines Frank Willard 24 Nov 1903
Hines Henry Harrison 7 Feb 1886
Hines John Alexander Logan 7 May 1889
According to his Nov 1885 WI marriage registration, James Almont HINES is the son of Sephrona (unknown) & Henry Harrison HINES and reports that he was born in "Hamer" [sic] (most likely "Omar") Jefferson Co NY .
[The 1861 Ontario Canada census for Barton Twp, Wentworth Co, ON CA, where HHH and family were living, indicated James' birth circa 1847 in "Canada West"].
My gr-gr-gf, Henry Harrison HINES, b 1817 Watertown Jefferson Co NY married (#1) Betsey/ Betsy FALLS and they had a son James A HINES and four or five other sons. HHH owned a 1/2 acre parcel in 1843 in Omar (now in the Town of Orleans, Jefferson Co, NY), along Millet Creek, on the Orleans to Alexandria Road.
I am trying to establish
(1) the full identity of "Frank HINES" whose SSDI record indicates he was born 24 Nov 1903 7 died Mar 1970 and who last lived in Newberry, Luce, MI Zip Code: 49868.
(2) where he is buried (& obituary?)
(3) contact with any of his descendants
(4) information about his ancestry -- esp about "Sephrona",
Frank's paternal grandmother. Is she the same woman as
Betsey/Betsy FALLS (the FALLS surname may be
an anglicized spelling of FOLS, FOLTS, FALZ etc)?
Thank you.// Gord Hines (in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada)
