I am trying to find the children of Abraham Miles b. abt. 1775 in Caswell Co.,NC and if not mistaken was in Pike Co., as early as 1820. I know he got government land that early. It is said his first wife was Nancy West.
He was married to Jane Crosley b. abt. 1798 , and appears with him in the 1850 census of Pike Co., Ala.
He had one child by her: Thomas Miles b. 1842 in Pike Co.,Ala. Two of her children: a William Crosley and I believe a Martha Crosley appears in that same census with them.
He dies in June of 1859 as he is in the 1860 Mortality census schedule.
I am trying to prove that John Wesley Miles b. 1811,1812 either NC/SC was his son by his first wife whom he prob. marr'd in NC Nancy West.
Can anyone please help me on this???
He owned a lot of land, so there should have been a Will or at least an estate settlement which might not have occurred until after Jane's death that should mention the children he had with Nancy!
Would greatly appreciate this help! Thank you so much!
