From "A History of Kentucky and Kentuckians, Volume 3," by E. Polk Johnson, 1912, Lewis Publishing Company:

"James M. Hines (brother of Capt. Thomas H. Hines) Assistant Commissary 9th Ky. Cav. returned to Bowling Green, Kentucky, at the end of the war, and became an attorney-at-law, and later editor of the Bowling Green Pantagraph. He was a man of unusual ability, but his career was cut short by death in his early manhood, he dying in 1881.

His son, Walker D. Hines, has already, though yet a young man, achieved a brilliant career, having been made first vice president of the L. & N.R.R. at the age of 32, and is now at the age of 40, Chief Counsel for the Santa Fe R.R. at a large salary, with his office in New York City, and he is regarded as one of the ablest railroad attorneys in the United States."
