Thanks for your reply. I was delighted to learn that Horatio Seymore Hines was your great grandfather! I'm sure this is the same Horatio S. Hines that is my great grandfather, although I didn't know that the S stood for Seymore. I know very little about Horatio - only that he was born 12 Aug 1863 somewhere in Missouri, married Hettie Garber in Caldwell Co MO in 1884, and 2 sons, Leroy and Joel (my grandfather), and possibly a daughter, Pernilia? (not sure about her, though). Sometime later, he and Hettie separated and I believe he went to KS. I've been looking for info on Horatio for a long time, and as you can see, what I do have is pretty sketchy. I would be grateful if you could share any info you might have on him, especially where in MO he was born, when he moved to KS, his date/place of death & burial, and anything else that might be of interest. Also, I would like to learn about his 2nd wife, Effie, if possible. If you are interested, I would be happy to share information I have on Horatio's earlier marriage to Hettie and some of their descendants.
