I am loooking for information to see if there is a connection to the the PYLES/PILES that were living in Sumner County and the PYLES/PILES that were living in the Dekalb counties of Tennessee.
Sumner county was a county at this time frame and the area that is now Dekalb was Indian lands These two areas were side by side.
I am looking to see if Elijah PILES/PYLES that married a women named Rebecca. His parents were Conrad PYLES/PILES (NC or VA:1766-TN 1849) and Mary (unknown surname)(1769-TN 1843) has a connection to the PYLES/PILES that married to one of the children of Johnand Catherine "SHERWOOD" SMOTHERS John was born in North Carolina in 1763 and Catherine was born in in North Carolina 1774-1888. John is the of Thomas and Susannah "Gilliam" SMOTHERS.
John had a son named Thomas (1830 bn.Sumner Cty, TN) that married a Sarah Elizabeth PYLES/PILES(1833-1834,bn. Sumner and Wilson Cty TN). Her parents were James Newton Nancy "SMOTHERS" PYLES/PILES, Jr.. He was the son of Newton and Susannah PYLE/PILES Of North or South Carolina.
I am looking for any information whether these two families are connected. Any information would be appreciated. Spelling of names may vary. Thanks in advance.
