Transcribed from The Biographical and Historical Record of Wayne and Appanoose Counties Iowa
Originally published 1886, Inter-State Publishing Company, Chicago, IL

Mrs. Miles died in October, 1865, and in 1867 he returned to his native State, and was married March 5, 1867, to Phoebe W. Bridge, a native of Marion County, Iowa, born October 6, 1825, a daughter of William Davids and widow of Dr. William W. Bridge. Dr. Bridge was a native of Athens County, Ohio, born October 26, 1817, his parents having settled in that county in 1813. His father worked in the Kanawha salt works with Hon. Thomas H. Ewing, when that distinguished gentleman was an awkward barefooted, ignorant young man, twenty-one years old, at that time not knowing a single letter of the alphabet. Dr. Bridge was a surgeon in the war of the Rebellion, in the service of the United States, and died in the hospital at Marietta, Georgia, in 1864. To him and his wife were born three children, but one whom is living -- Belle, now the wife of William Sproatt, of Corydon, Iowa.
