Peter Hines and Mary (Harman) Hines

My third great-grandparents, Peter and Mary (Harman) Hines were the parents of Margaret Hines.  Much of their lives remains a mystery to me.  However, Peter was the owner of 92 acres in Cook  Township, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania conveyed from William G. Robinson in 1833.  He died in October 1845 in Stahlstown, Pennsylvania less than a year after the birth of his youngest son and is buried in the Methodist Church Cemetery in Stahlstown.

Mary Harman, the daughter of Philip Henry Harman and Elizabeth Humm, was born in 1815 in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.  She married Peter Hines in say 1833.  Their marriage is confirmed in an 1839 petition by Philip Harman, son of Philip Henry Harman, that refers to Maria married to Peter Hines.  There is a record of Mary with her children in the 1850 U.S. census in Donegal, Westmoreland, Pennsylvania.  But I have not found any record of her after that until her death on December 25, 1895 in Stahlstown.  She, too, is buried in the Methodist Church Cemetery.
