The physician registering his death was W. J. Norris of 5144 Butler St. and the undertaker was M. A. Hanlon of 5126 Butler St.  He was buried in St. Mary's Cemetery in Lawrenceville.

Notes for ANNA CANAVANAnna Canavan Hines remarried later in life.  Her granddaughter, Irene Toney, does not know the man's name, but feels he was Polish.  She believes they lived in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh.

                   (The photo to the right is the WWI draft registration card of Anthony, dated 9/12/18.  Here his birth date is listed as November 9, 1877.  He is living at West 19th Street in Erie, PA and is employed by Erie Forge Company.  His next of kin is listed as Ann Hines, Walkerville, PA.  He has brown hair and blue eyes.)


             ii.     MARY HINES, b. Abt. 1881; d. October 13, 1954; m. JACOB G. HEASLEY, 1911; b. Abt. 1877. 


Notes for MARY HINES

Although Mary had no children of her own, she often sacrificed to care for her nephews and nieces,  sending clothing to her sister Ella's children.  She cared for her brother Anthony's son, Anthony, although her husband Jacob objected. 

Mary was known as May by her family.  According to Irene O'Rourke Toney, it was May who changed several of the girl's names, stating that they all sounded like they just got off the boat.  So, Mary became May, Ellen became Ella, Kathleen became Kitty and Nora became Irene.  There is some confusion about Marion's name - she was called Della by the family, but Irene Toney believes she was named Bridget when she was born.  (It turns out that she was born Delia)


1920 Census, January 21, 1920, Ward 26:  3208 East St., Pittsburgh, Pa. (North Side)  Jake G. Heasley, 43, driller for an oil company is living with wife, Mary, 38.  They rent their home.  Both Mary and Jake state they were born in Pennsylvania.  Mary's parents were born in Ireland.  Also in the household is Earl Hines, cousin, 14 years old, father born in Ireland, mother born in Pennsylvania.  (ED 735, Page 15).  Earl Hines is probably Mary's nephew, Anthony F. Hines, the son of her older brother, Anthony.

1930 Census:  Herman Road, Summit Township, Butler County, PA.  Jacob G. and Mary T (or F) Heasley own their own home, worth $2500.  Jacob's occupation is laborer, odd jobs.  Jacob is 52; Mary is 50.  They were married at the ages of 33 and 31.

           iii.     KATHLEEN HINES, b. Abt. 1883; d. Arizona; m. UNKNOWN DARLING.


Kathleen (Kitty) married a man names Darling in Pittsburgh.  His health was poor and they moved, first to Kansas, then to Arizona.  After her husband's death, Kitty remarried in Arizona.  Irene Toney believes that she never had children.  Her nephew, Anthony, kept in touch with her, and visited her at least once, in Kansas. 

5.         iv.     ELLA (ELLEN) HINES, b. June 02, 1884, Schenectady, NY; d. February 19, 1964, Leechburg, PA. 

             v.     MICHAEL HINES, b. April 1885, Pennsylvania.

                  The family of Michael completely lost touch with him and had no further information on him.   However, the following information was found in census and vital records at

 1900 Federal Census:  Michael Heinz, 15 years old, born in Pa, parents born in Ireland, is boarding at the home of Mary O'Malley on Keystone Street  (located between Allegheny Cemetery and Butler St. in Lawrenceville)  in Pittsburgh's 18th Ward.  He is employed as a rivet heater; can read and write.

MichaelHinesWWI.jpg (138937 bytes)(The photo to the left is the WWI draft registration card of Michael, dated 9/12/18.  Here his birth date is listed as July 28, 1885.  He is living at Hickory Street in Erie, PA and is employed by Erie Forge Company.  His next of kin is listed as Anna Hines, 3212 East St, Allegheny, PA.  He has brown hair and blue eyes.)

From the 1920 Census for Erie, PA:  Michael Hines is living on Cherry St. and is married to Edna Conkey.  They have a son, Gilbert Hines, born in 1918.  Michael is employed at a Forge Company.

            vi.     ANNA HINES, b. Abt. 1886; d. 1904. 

           vii.     MARION W. (DELIA) HINES, b. July 17, 1887, Chittenango, Madison County, New York; d. June 09, 1981, Narberth, Penn Valley, Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County, PA; m. VICTOR C. STEENGRAFE; b. December 13, 1887, Brooklyn, New York; d. March 1968, Narberth, PA. 



According to Irene Toney, Marion was born Bridget Hines and was called Della by the family. (St. Paul's Orphan Asylum records list her as Delia.)   Marion was employed as a companion in a Quaker household, where she met Victor Steengrafe, whose family was in the shipbuilding industry.  She occasionally kept in touch with her sister Mary, sending a letter or card once or twice a year.  Her nephew, Anthony Hines, after WWII, went to visit her unannounced in the Philadelphia area, but was treated quite coldly by her.  (His perception, of course)

(Lawrenceville Section, Ward 18, ED4??, Page16a).  Frank works as a laborer in a mill.  The image is very poor, making it difficult to read.  It looks like he came to the US in 1882 or 1888.  He and Winifred have had 8 children, all living.  The eldest child, Bridget, is working, but the place is too blurred to read. 


In the 1920 Census, the family is living at the same address.  Frank is a laborer in a steel mill.  Here it looks like he came to the US in 1884.  He was a naturalized citizen, but the date is too blurred to read.  Winifred, also born in Ireland, appears to have come to the US in 1888(?) and was naturalized in 1890.
