Co., 1916 (aka Arizona, the Youngest State), volume 3 (Biographical), pages 217-218: Dr. Francis Eppes Shine, chief surgeon of the Copper Queen Hospital and of the El Paso and Southwestern Railroad Company in Bisbee, was born in St. Augustine, Florida in 1871, a son of Dr. William Francis and Maria Jefferson (Eppes) Shine. The father was born in North Carolina and the mother in Virginia and they removed to Florida at an early date. Dr. William F. Shine was an able and successful
physician and acted as army surgeon for a Confederate regiment during the Civil War. He continued in the active practice of his profession until his death in 1910. Dr. Francis E. Shine acquired his early education in the grammar and preparatory schools of Sewanee, Tennessee, which he attended for four years, afterward entering the University of the South in the same city, from which he was graduated in 1892. He afterward studied medicine in the University of Virginia, taking his degree of M.D. in 1895 and going later to New York City where he was intern in the New York Hospital, gaining in that way valuable practical experience. He severed his connection with the hospital in 1899 and engaged in private practice in New York, gaining a large and representative patronage as a reward for his ability and skill. From 1901 to 1902 he was medical instructor in Cornell University, and in the latter year came to Arizona as chief surgeon of the Copper Queen Hospital. Dr. Shine is an expert surgeon, keeping in touch with the most advanced thought in his profession through his membership in the
Arizona State Medical Society, of which he was president in 1913 and is making unusual professional ability effective in a general way by his service as president of the state board of medical examiners. In 1903 Dr. Shine married Miss Ann Barker, a native of Toronto, Canada and a daughter of C.B. Barker, who has passed away. Dr. and Mrs. Shine have three children: Francis Eppes; Randolph Eppes; and Elizabeth Eppes.
