Rupert George Hineline , son of Mr. And Mrs. George Hineline , pioneer residents of DeSota, Nebraska, was born in DeSota February 26, 1893. He answered the call to the colors in the late World War entering the service at Blair, Nebraska in September 18, 1917, leaving the United States for service in the front lines February 10, 1918. He served with distinction in the Mechanical Auto Division Company K, 355Th Infantry, being promoted from the ranks first to rank of Corporal and later that of Sergeant. After fourteen months of active services abroad he returned to the United States June 8, 1919, was honorable discharged and returned home to Blair July 4, 1919.
He was married to Miss Mary Schmidt at Glenville, Nebraska January 25, 1920. They settled in Blair where he followed the vocation of mechanic in which he was an expert.
He believed intensely in Americanism. He became a member of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and was loyal to his principles as he understood them.
He met death in an accident while at work April 28, 1927 at 5:40 p.m. at the age of 34 years, 2 months and 2 days. Quiet and unassuming, he was devoted to his work, his friend and his country, speaking ill of none, a loyal son and loving husband.
