On Wednesday, July 26, 2017, the death angel came and bore the bright spirit of Elijah Hines away to a land that is free from sickness, sorrow, pain and death.  Elijah Hines was born January 11, 1951 to the late Betty Mae McKoy (deceased) and the late Eli Hines (deceased).

Elijah a.k.a. “Sweet Daddy”, was educated at Scotland County School District in which he later worked as a faithful employee at Scotland County School System.  He then went to work for Railroad Friction in Laurinburg, NC and The Grooms Brothers in McColl, SC.  Elijah was a member of St. Luke Baptist Church in Hasty, NC.
