SINES, PETER L. (abridged)

Preston Republican, Terra Alta, WV (date unknown):
Peter L. Sines, son of Mary Sines was born March 15th, 1868 near Hoy Run, and died May 20th, 1928, at Borgman, aged 60 years, two months and five days. He spent his entire boyhood in the pine swamp settlement. His mother died when he was but just a babe, so in early years of life he was deprived of one of the most precious jewels that any boy can possess, that of a mother's love. He was reared by his grandmother, Katie Sines. He grew into young manhood hardy as the hills over which he both played and worked and which he loved.  On May 23, 1887 he was united in marriage to Ella F. Johnson, who preceded him in death on April 26, 1922. To this union were born nine children, eight of whom survive, namely: Mrs. Edna M. Garrett and Robert Sines of Akron, Ohio; Sylvester B. of Cranesville, John W. of Preston; Mrs. Alta Bergman, Foster, Fred and Harlon of Borgman; and 23 grandchildren. On June 18, 1923, he was again united in marriage to Mrs. Grace Feathers of Clarksburg, who survives him, also four step children, Mrs. May Boyer of Cumberland, Md.; Mrs. Jennie Arehart, James and Allen E. Feathers of Clarksburg and a host of friends who deeply mourn his loss. Mr. Sines had been in failing health for several months but his condition was not considered serious, which made it doubly hard, as he was well as usual on Saturday and died suddenly on Sunday morning at 5 o'clock. The funeral services were conducted at Hoy Run Wednesday morning at 10:30 o'clock by Rev. Emery Fike of Eglon. He was a strong believer of the church of the Brethren and his daily pastime was reading the Bible. He was a good husband and father and a fine neighbor and will be greatly missed in this community and by all that knew him. He was tenderly laid to rest in the Miller cemetery beside his companion and his grandparents, Leonard and Katie Sines. [followed by a poem about fathers, which was followed by the following item]
Card of Thanks
The children of P. L. Sines and wife, Mrs. Grace Sines, wish to thank the many kind friends and neighbors of Borgman and vicinity and also the people of Hoy Run, who came so willingly and tendered their help and comfort to us in the death of our father and husband. We want to also thank you all, who further emphasized your kindness by donating your cars on the day of the funeral and also for the beautiful flowers. We hope when this sad hour comes to your home you will be treated likewise. We assure you it was all appreciated and we are taking this method to try and demonstrate a portion of it to you.
