It is my understanding that James M. and Edvin Jr. were indentured to the Myles family in 1818 in Shelby Co., not in Woodford Co. Apparently Phebe had abandoned / left Edvin with the kid sometime around that time.... but the kids (and other children???) show up in his household in Shelby Co. in the 1820 census. Also, around the same time, I found the mention of a Phoebe Mullican that married a man named Rowland Chambers in or around Woodford county. I think Phebe left Edvin, moved back in with her family in Woodford Co., and after a time of separation married this Chambers.
