I've come to a different conclusion as to the parents of this George Wiles; let me know what you think!
George, twin son of George and Hannah Wiles, was born 15 Sept 1820.George Wiles, who died 11 May 1894, 67 yr.-1 mo.-2 d. If calculated back would have been born 9 April 1827. Though the dates don't match by roughly 6 1/2 years, major errors were common in those days.
According to the will of George Peter Wiles, GME 1 p. 367 probated15 May 1832, Hannah (Brandenburg) Wiles, wife of George Peter's deceased son George was permitted to reside on a 50 acre tract of land puchased by George Peter Wiles so long as Hannah did not re-marry.On 18 May 1834, a marriage license was issued in Frederick County to Hannah Wiles and George Colliflower who was also a widower.Then according to Equity Records HS 2 No. 1554 dated 12 Dec. 1836, a complaint was filed by Eli Miller and wife Mary Ann; born Maria Catherine Anne Wiles in 1809, first born child of George and Hannah (Brandenburg) Wiles.The complaint basically was daughter against her mother and other siblings regarding the provisions of George Peter Wiles' will.Mary Ann and husband Eli contended that upon her mother's re-marriage, she was legally bound to sell the 50 acre tract which was located north of Lewistown and the proceeds were to be split among each of George and Hannah's children.After a lengthy battle, the courts agreed to the complaint and the property was sold to the highest bidder which happened to be Hannah's son Jacob Wiles who paid a sum total of $357.00 on 18 May 1837.After court and misc. fees were paid; a total of $40.83 9/10 was paid to each of the following children: Mary Ann (Wiles) Miller, Jacob Wiles, Peter Wiles, George Wiles, Frederick Wiles, John Henry Wiles and Sophia Wiles.In the end, Mary Ann received her money and brother Jacob purchased the property so that his mother and siblings could continue to live on the property.This Equity battle establishes that George Wiles was still alive until at least 18 May 1837.
The census records starting 1850 through 1880 do not show any conclusive evidence of a George Wiles who would have been born in 1820.
According to the First and Final Administrative Account SGC 1 p. 585 dated 5 June 1869; Hannah Colliflower was deceased and this documents that upon the sale of her personal estate and after paying off her debts, a balance of $9.95 was available for distribution to her children so mentioned as Jacob D. Wile, Sophia Weddle, Frederick B. Wile and John H. Wile (with no mention of George).
It's my opinion that George, son of George and Hannah Wiles is actually George M. Wiles, buried at Lewistown Methodist Church and whose stone was transcribed by Jacob Holdcraft as 1 Sept. 1838 ?8-11-15 (badly eroded).In a closer examination of this stone, I believe that the "?" is a "1" which means that the date of birth would have been 16 Sept. 1819; exactly 1 year and one day off from the recorded birth of George Wiles in the Middletown Zion Lutheran Church records.
I believe that the parents of George D. Wiles is Willliam and Catherine (Domer) Wiles. William being a son of George Peter and Maria (Youtsey) Wiles.Records indicate that William also moved from Middletown Valley to the Lewistown/Thurmont area. Catherine Domer was a daughter of Daniel Domer and Eva Maria (Bauer) Domer.They had 5 known children as documented in the birth/baptism records of Zion Lutheran Church in Middletown and Apple's Church in Thurmont. Daniel Domer died sometime before 16 Sept. 1846 according to his will GME-3 p. 190 at the Frederick County Court House. In his will he references his daughter Catherine, wife of William Wiles; however; Daniel's Final Account 17-305 was filed in Washington County, MD and identifies a total of 11 living children of William and Catherine (Domer) Wiles which includes the name of a son name George.I believe the George Wiles you seek was named George Daniel Wiles and his middle name was given out of respect for grandfather, Daniel Domer.
