Notes for JOSEPH HINN:

Joseph HINN purchased land at several different times from the land office in Mineral Springs, WI. His first purchase was on November 10, 1855 consisting of 80 acres in Fennimore. His second purchase involved 3 parcels on June 1, 1858 - 40 acres, 80 acres and 120 acres all in the same area. One last purchase was made by a Joseph HINN of Douglass County, WI, of 40 acres on March 1, 1865. There is no proof that this is our Joseph HINN, but so far no other Joseph has been found. Douglas County is the most nothern county in Wisconsin while Grant County is the most southern, making it highly unlikely that this is our Joseph. (Maybe he was buying land for a summer cottage).

George gave his daughter, Laura, $100 per month spending money while she was attending college at CIA in Texas. This was a substantial sum in those days and indicate that George was well off.
