Birth: Aug. 4, 1809
York County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jan. 26, 1860
Coweta County
Georgia, USA

Milos married Ellen on 28 Jan. 1836.

French Hugenot Ancestory. In the summer of 1853, "because of failing health and financial reverses...came to Newnan to begin life anew." He was "endowed with a magnificent bass voice the choirs of the different churches....were grateful to be indebted to him for leadership in their early interest in church music. It is said that the Presbyterian church owned the first melodeon (preceding the organ) in town, and that he was the first to touch the keys. This chuch also had the distinction of possessing the first lamp which was placed on the left side of the melodeon. So interested in all things musical that he journeyed all the way to New York soley for the purpose of hearing Jennie Lind, the Swedish nightingale, sing, in her first concert in America.

With a rare distinction of spiratual values, the eyes of faith steadfastly fixed on the "things that are not seen," Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the chief cornerstone of his life, he adorned a long line of godly ancestors. Throughout his last illness, his pastor, Rev. James Stacy, D.D., whom he had known in Columbia, S.C., when a student of the Theological Seminary (while he himself, was for a short time a resident there, and his home a mecca for many of the students), visited his bedside each morning and made a daily record of his conversation, which he afterwards presented in book form to the family. This booklet is still a treasured legacy richer to his descendants than "much fine gold." He was an influence that belonged rather to the moral and spiritual growth than to the material strength of a community - a girdle of true wisdom which makes strength possible." This info is from the Coweta Co. Chronicles Book.

There is a patent by a Miles G. Simril for a tailoring device in 1848. Could this be Milos??
