In search of Hines family of Vigo County, Indiana (Terre Haute)

My Great Grandmother is Elizabeth (Hines) Rogers. I can find very little information about her family.

Elizabeth Hines married James Frank Rogers (son of James O. Rogers and Evana Lenderman) on 09/13/1900 in Vigo County. She had two sons, Oscar Frank Rogers and Adelbert Clifton Rogers. Adelbert is my grandfather.

Elizabeth Hines could also be known as Sarah E. (Hines) Rogers (Lizzie Hines) (Heinze) (Hinez), or Mary Elizabeth Rogers. There are many spellings and combinations.

The 1910 Census has her born about 1880 in Indiana. The Father's Birth Place is listed as Kentucky, and the Mother's Birth Place is listed as Indiana. She died in Terre Haute in October of 1953. She was 71 years old. Buried in Rose Lawn Memorial Park, and associated with Sacred Heart Church in Terre Haute.

The funeral sign-in of Elizabeth Hines has the mother and the father listed as Sarah Clark and George Hines.

The 1900 Census lists a George Hines who could possibly be the father of Elizabeth Hines. His Home in 1900 was Otter Creek, Vigo, Indiana. Birth Jul 1829, Kentucky. His Father's and Motherís Birthplace is Kentucky. His Spouse's Name was Sarah (Birth Date: Aug 1844 in Ohio, Father's Birthplace: England ). The Marriage Year was about 1840. The Household Members are George Hines (70), Sarah Hines (55), Elizabeth Hines (21), George Hines (19), and Edward Benight (10). Nothing known about son George Hines or Edward Benight. There may be a Dolores in the Hines family somewhere.

I have many old photographs of James F. Rogers and Elizabeth Hines with unknown people. I would love to verify and trade photos with someone.
