1.  THOMAS W. HYNES immigrated to Ellisburg from Ireland.  In the 1850 census, Thomas Hynes's name was
spelled Hines.  In his own records, he spelled it Hynes.  His immigration papers say he immigrated 
in 1836 or 1837 so perhaps he lived there earlier.  His naturalization papers say that he 
emigrated to the town of Oswego, Oswego County, New York, 15 Sept 1837.  The two
 witnesses for his papers were Martin McLaughlin and Patrick (whose name I cannot 
decipher but may be Gilbery, Gilbay, Gilbey).

In the census I found another Hines living fairly close to Thomas Hines
but have no idea if they could have been related.  Thomas' daughter Johanna
was born in County Limerick.
