I am researching Miles W. Wilson, my gg grandfather, who was born in GA and lived in Jackson County. He first married Catherine Jentry. They had 10 children.
Polly b. about 1842 Martha b. about 1843 William b. about 1845 Alander B. b. about 1847 Twins Louisa & Louiesea b. about 1849 Kate b. about 1852 Benjamin Crawford b. 9 Aug 1856 Obediah Carter b. 15 May 1854 Rhoda Ellen b. about 1859
In the 1860 census, he and his family were living in Freeman, Gordon County GA. He enlisted 11 Oct 1861 as a Private in the 8th GA Battalion, Company D, Infantry, in Calhoun GA during the Civil War.
In the 1870 census they are in Walker Co. GA.
His second marriage was to Cintha Catrine (Cynthia Catherine?)Williams who lived next door to them in Walker Co. By 1880, he and Cintha had 5 children and were living in Morgan Co. AL.
Ansel Miles b. 23 July 1872 Mary Evelyine "Mollie" b. 7 Jan 1873 Nancy Columbus "Cummie" b. 17 Apr 1876 Zacheriah Butler b. 20 Feb 1877 Diza Albennie "Ollie" b 17 Apr 1880
Does anyone know where he and Cintha are buried? According to Cintha's application for a Widow's Pension, Miles died of blood poison 6 Jan 1886 but it doesn't say where. Cintha died 10 Dec 1923 in Morgan County AL.
