I am searching for the parents of Marion Harvey Giles, born about 1834 in Tennessee. In addition, I hope to find his date of death and his burial place. I assume he is buried in Collin County, Texas, but I do not know that for certain.
I have searched all of the usual websites, including Ancestry.com, Fold3, FamilySearch, and Findagrave.
Several times I have seen his name as "M. H. Giles". Once it is misspelled "Marino".
His middle name, "Harvey", was passed down to one of his grandsons, so there is a possibility that an ancestor had that name as well.
Marion Harvey Giles enlisted in Missouri as a private in the Confederate Army in 1863.
Marion later moved to Lamar County, Texas. I believe he owned a lumber company there. From the Paris, Texas area, he moved to Collin County, Texas.
I have him on census records of 1860, 1870, and 1880.
His wife was named Elizabeth (last name unknown). I am also searching for her last name and all pertinent information concerning her.
Their children were:
John T. Giles, b. 1861 Fielden Price Giles, b. 1862 Tobias P. "Tobe" Giles, b. 1864 M.A. Giles, b. 1865 James S. "Tollie" Giles (my second great grandfather), b. 1867 W.B. Giles, b. 1875
Thank you for taking the time to read my posting. Blessings on your searches.
