One of my ancestors, Tarilla Johnson married Pellum A. Miles. It appears he died in the Civil War leaving her with 2 sons, James P Miles and John A Miles. Both boys were in their early 20's when they died in Titus County on 26 October, 1887. I can find no record of them or what killed them on the same day. It appears the Miles family appeared out of no where and disappeared into no where. If anyone has any info on this Miles family, I would appreciate it. "Pellum" is such an unusual name but I can find no record anywhere of where he came from or his family!
