Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: May 7, 1889
Oconto County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: May 6, 1965
Somerset County
Maine, USA

Logan was the 2nd of three children (all sons) born to James Almont and Violetta "Lettie" Imogene (COLE) HINES.

Logan's brothers were:
Henry Harrison HINES 1886-1950 FAG Memorial # 53027187
Frank Willard HINES 1903 - 1970 FAG Memorial # 46689604

He also had an older half-brother from his father's first marriage (to Mary Ann TAYLOR):
Charles Henry Franklin (aka "Taylor") HINES 1877 - 1929 FAG Memorial # 3530082

In May 1916, in Cochrane*, Ontario, Canada, he enlisted for Military Service in the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) 228th Battalion. His service was "canceled" 22 Jan 1917.
He was repatriated to US under a program to recruit US citizens in Canadian military service back to the USA. His WWI US Draft Registration Card appears to be dated Jan 17, 1917 (his age is given as 28), and he is again living in Wisconsin. He subsequently served in the US Navy during WWI.
* Logan had "HINES cousins" living in Northern Ontario from Muskoka to New Liskeard / Cobalt / Cochrane areas. These were lumber and mining locations of that time.

On June 18, 1920, Logan and Irene Beverly "Mattie" HINES (from an unrelated HINES ancestry) were married in Philadelphia, PA. They moved to Wisconsin after they were married. There, they had three children, born in different cities:
Beverly Anne HINES 1921 2004
Logan John "Pat" HINES 1925 2009
Virginia Fay "Ginny" HINES 1926 2006

In the 1 Apr 1930 census, the family was living in Reed City Village, Osceola Co, Michigan where he was employed as a "Superintendent" in the "Pole Business".

In 1940...[to be added]

Logan, aka "Pat" and his wife, Irene Beverly aka "Mattie", lived for many years in the village of Solon, a small town in central Maine with a population under 1000.

He was employed by Koppers Company in Maine until he retired.

Occupation: Lumberman

He died in nearby Skowhegan (about 15 miles south of Solon), one day before his 76th birthday. Cause of Death: Heart attack (throat cancer). His Maine Death Registration is in the name of "John A HINES".

Logan is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery, Solon.

After his death, his widow moved to California, where her daughter and son lived at that time. She died on 12 July 1994 in Fremont, Alameda County, CA. After cremation, her son Pat returned her remains back east where they were interred with those of her husband.
