CECIL D. HINE. A. M., senior member of the important law firm of Hine, Kennedy & Robinson, at Youngstown,
has been one of the prominent attorneys of Mahoning County for the past quarter of a century. Mr. Hine was born
at Hubbard, Trumbull County, Ohio, August 3, 1849, and is a son of Samuel and Ellen L. (Montgomery) Hine and a
grandson of Homer Hine, who was one of the earliest and most successful lawyers of the Western Reserve. The family
is an old established one in Mahoning County.
Samuel Hine, whose death occurred May 19, 1893, was born at Youngstown and married Ellen L. Montgomery, a daughter
of Robert Montgomery, who located at a very early day in Trumbull County, and who, as early as 1806, built at Poland
one of the first iron furnaces in the state, which he successfully operated for a considerable period.
Cecil D. Hine was primarily educated in his native locality and then entered Western Reserve College, at the beginning
of the sophomore year, where he completed the course with great credit. At a later date his alma mater conferred
upon him the degree of Master of Arts. After his return from college, he entered upon the study of the law with
the well known firm of Taylor & Jones, at Warren, Ohio, and after two years of reading, was admitted to the
bar in Trumbull County, on April 15, 1872. Shortly afterward he entered upon the practice of his profession at
Youngstown, where he has remained ever since, by his ability making his name well known in Mahoning and other counties.
The law firm of Hine, Kennedy & Robinson, which was formed in 1900, is considered one of the strongest and
ablest combinations of legal talent in this section of Ohio. The junior member of the firm is a son of Circuit
Judge Robinson.. The other member, Hon. James B. Kennedy, is a former judge of the Court of Common Pleas. The firm
has well appointed offices in the Wick building. Mr. Hine is one of the city's representative citizens and is closely
connected with its important interests and public affairs.
On October 9, 1872, Mr. Hine was united in marriage with Elizabeth W. Woodruff, who was born at Poland, Ohio. They
have one daughter, Elizabeth W., who is the wife of Charles H. Cates of New York. The family home is located at
No. 725 Wick avenue.
