George Jackson Miles
Birth: May 1, 1802
Virginia, USA
Death: Oct. 12, 1894
Edmonson County
Kentucky, USA

In the 1880 census George stated that his father had been born in England and his mother in Virginia. He came to Jackson Co. (Now Clay Co.) probably in the early 1830`s. He was not listed in the 1830 Jackson County Census. No Miles were listed in the 1830 Jackson County Census and he was one of the two Miles in the 1840 Jackson County Census. He received a Jackson County land grant in 1834 and 9 more between 1835 and 1852 which I have copies of. There was a great discussion going on at this time that this part of Jackson County was in Kentucky until Clay County was formed in 1880 in TN. The Land Grands were at the Archives in Frankfort, KY. He lived in the Miles Crossroads area until about 1857. At that time he moved his family to Edmonson County, KY. and remained there until he died. Most of his children went to Edmonson County, but Margaret J. Miles and John Jackson Miles stayed behind. It is reported that when he left Jackson County he deeded a lot of his land to his son John Jackson Miles. George along with his wife Sarah Prewitt are buried in the Davis Cemetery behind the Green Springs Church in Mammoth Cave National Park.
