Note: Book - Richmond Co. MO:1881 "Joseph B. Hines, a native of Ray Co., MO, was born September 27, 1828. After finishing his education at the Richmond Academy, he began teaching school in which profession he continued until 1850. He was united in marriage to Miss Jemima E. Hutchinson, of Lafayette Co., MO, in November, 1847. Two children, Mary I. and John, were born to Mrs. Hines. With them and their mother, Mr. Hines started to CA in the height of the gold excitement of 1850. On their toilsome, tedious march across the plains, Mrs. Hines and both the children were deized with that dread disease, cholera, and the husband and father, powerless fo aid them, and almost frantic with grief, watched them all die before him. Burying their remains, near Fort Laramie, Mr. Hines pursued his journey westward. He spen three years mining on the Pacific slope. In CA, November 25, 1851, he was again married to Elianor Sharp, by whom he has six children living: John S., William T., Joseph P., Olivia F., Gustavus A., and Viola S. Mr. Hines returned from the west in the springof 1853, and engaged in farming, where he now resides, a beautiful place, well improved, four miles northwest of Richmond. At the breaking out of the civil war, he enlisted in company B, Major Cummins' regiment, C. S. A., where he served about three months as forage master. At the expiration of that time a reorganization was held at Springfield, and Mr. Hines entered the service, as commissary of the regiment, which position he held until after the battle of Pea Ridge, in March, 1862, when he went to Carrollton, Arkansas, as recruiting officer for General Raines. Here he was given the alternative of Imprisonment at Alton, or "protection papers." He chose the latter, and at once returned home. Shortly afterwards, he left again, going to Iowah, where he taught school for about a year. At the close of the term he came back home, and has ever since been a resident of Ray Co., engaged in farming and teaching. For the last few years he has devoted a great deal of attention to the nursery business, having now, on his farm, a fine young nursery of ten thousand good trees, of the best varieties. Mr. H. has taught school, at intervals, ever since he was eighteen years old. He has just closed a term with great satisfaction to all patrons. He is a prominent member of the Masonic order, and also became a member and took an active interest in the inauguration and organization of the order of Patrons of Husbandry. Mr. HInes has, indeed, had a varied and eventful career, and passed through many rough ordeals, but he appears to have come out of them all unscathed, and is today successful in business, and highly respected by all who knew him.
