Biography or Information of Interest: Again, I don't have a lot of detailed information on the Hainline brothers. I know they descended from Palatine immigrants with the surname HENLEIN who arrived in Virginia in the mid-1700s. The fact that Joseph lived less than 17 years after the war ended tells me that he may have died of war-related injury or illness.
