Benjamin Warren Viles was my GGG Grandfather, his daughter was Elvira Jane "Vida" Viles. She married Cyrus Russell Mathews c. 1879, and passed away between 1887 and 1890. The story that has come down through this line is that after Vida died Cyrus abandoned the children, including my Great-Grandmother Ruby Lillian Mathews (married name Alexander). Was wondering if any other Viles descendants have any info. on what actually happened to Vida. I have a bit more info. on Vida's descendants, but wanted to keep this brief.
