Subject: Family of George and Sarah MILES
Date: Thu, 26 Nov 1998 19:07:07 EST


Below is some limited information that I have accumulated on the descendants
of George and Sarah MILES. Some of this came from census data already posted.
I have listed what data I have, through their grandchildren. I show that
George and Sarah came to Edmonson County about 1853.

When organizing this information, I was interested in connections to the
MEREDITH family. The given name "Miles" was also common in the family of
Bradley MEREDITH (son of Charles Wallace MEREDITH.)

Note that some of their apparent grandchildren were living with them in 1870.
I assigned these to a son "Mr." MILES. Based upon the 1850 Census data, one
might speculate that this son was John J. MILES, especially since their first
son was also named John J. MILES. I believe this man to be the father of
Sarah MILES who married William STRANGE.

There were several men named Jasper N (Newton?) MILES in Edmonson County. I
think that I have each man with his correct spouse, but I can offer no further
proof. John, Martha and Sarah were other common given names in the MILES
family.
