Enoch Hines, my paternal 4th great-grandfather, was born c. 1803 in North Carolina (possibly Sampson County). He was the son of Felix Hines and Mary "Molly" Carr. He was in Marion County, Mississippi in the 1820's as he married Susannah Guy on 28 January 1824 in said county. Susannah was born c. 1807 in Duplin County, North Carolina, the daughter of Jesse Guy and Mary "Polly" Conerly.
Enoch and Susannah are shown together on the 1850 Federal Census, Pike County, Mississippi. Their household then consisted of- Enoch Hines (age 47, Blacksmith, born in North Carolina), Susan H. (age 45, born in North Carolina), Enoch H. (Henry), age 12, Felix, age 10, Christiann (Christina), age 5 and Frances, age 3. Also in their household were "Students"- George W. Brumfield, age 20 and Andrew J. Brumfield, age 20; and a "Ditcher", William Burns, age 60. (Not shown on this census are three daughters of Enoch and Susannah- Elizabeth, who married Charles Perry Thomas in 1842, Rebecca, who married George M. Fitzgerald in 1846 and Mary "Polly" Hines, who had married James B. McCain before 1847)

By 1860, Enoch and Susannah had moved to Washington Parish, Louisiana. Their son, Felix, and daughter, Frances, remained in their household. Their son, Enoch Henry, had married Susan Ann Kornegay and the couple also resided in the same household. I'm uncertain as to the whereabouts of their daughter, Christina at that time.

I have been unable to locate the Enoch Hines family on the 1870 Federal Census. Enoch's wife, Susannah, died c. 1873 in Angie, Washington Parish, Louisiana. She was buried in the Hines Cemetery there. In 1880, Enoch resided in the household with his daughter, Mary "Polly", who was then married to Seaborn W. Stogner.

Enoch Hines died 19 July 1881 at the age of 78. He was buried in the Hines Cemetery, Angie, Washington Parish, Louisiana.
