H. U. Hainline.

H. U. Hainline, a prosperous and representative agriculturist of Orient township, where he owns and operates an excellent farm of two hundred and eighty acres on section 23, is known throughout the country as a breeder of Percheron horses.  His birth occurred in Tazewell county, Illinois, on the 2d of February, 1867, his parents being Henry and Polly (Camp) Hainline, who were born, reared and married in that state.  The father, who followed general agricultural pursuits throughout his active business career, is now living retired in Tazewell county.

H. U. Hainline was reared in the county of his nativity and attended the district schools in the acquirement of an education.  When a youth of eighteen he began working as a farm hand and following his marriage, which was celebrated when he had attained the age of twenty-two years, he started out as an agriculturist on his own account, cultivating rented land in McLean county, Illinois, for two years.  In the fall of 1891 he came to Iowa, purchasing a farm in Union county on which he took up his abode in the spring of 1892.  The operation of that property claimed his attention until 1902, when he left the farm on account of his wife's impaired health and during the following two years engaged in the real-estate business at Creston.  In 1904 he purchased and located on a farm of two hundred and eighty acres in Orient township, Adair county, which he has operated continuously and successfully since.  For several years he was widely known as a breeder of hogs, owning at one time the finest herd of Berkshire hogs in the state of Iowa.  In the year 1907 he won fifty-six premiums, taking first champion and grand champion on an aged sow and first champion on a boar as well as many premiums on young hogs.  In years past he has also devoted considerable attention to the breeding of Shetland ponies, while at the present time he is prominently known as a breeder of Percheron horses.  He owns one of the finest Percheron stallions in this section of the state and eleven registered Percheron mares.  Mr. Hainline belongs to the Percheron Society of America and is one of the well known breeders of the country.

In November, 1889, Mr. Hainline was united in marriage to Miss Anna Bozarth, of McLean county, Illinois, by whom he had six children, four of whom survive, as follows:  Ella Leta, who is the wife of Fred Butler, of Orient, Iowa;  Loren J., who operates a portion of the home farm;  Rachel Bernice, who is attending school in Orient;  and Henry Harold.

In his political views Mr. Hainline is a stanch republican but he has never sought nor desired the honors and emoluments of office as a reward for his party fealty.  Fraternally he is identified with the Woodmen of the World and the Ancient Order of United Workmen, while his religious faith is that of the Christian church, to which his wife belongs.  The high principles of manhood which have ever governed his dealings with is fellowmen have won for him the unqualified respect, confidence and goodwill of all with whom he has come in contact.
