Miles grew up liking carpentering, and did such work his whole life. He was born in/nr Wapello, Louisa County, Iowa and when only 17, he enlisted in Co. C, 11th Iowa Inf. Regt of the Union Army. He served just a few months and was discharged in Louisville, Ky at the conclusion of the C.W., on 15 July 1865.

He returned to Iowa and stayed with his brother, Jarodus, & his family until ca. 1881 when he took his craft to Blair, Nebraska. There, he met Widow Mrs. Sophia Pennington, and they were wed 23 Sep 1883.

They had 9 kids before Sophia d. in 1907. She had just given birth to Grant Curtis Miller, on 30 Aug 1907. Sophie had Cancer, so either child-birth or Cancer done 'er in. NO evidence of her burial or any of the kids that had
died in Blair.

Miles took his trade to Wayne, Nebraska, soon thereafter, and soon married a young lady, Maybelle Jane "Mable" PARKER, in Pascagoula, Miss. on 7 Apr 1909, and then they returned to Wayne City. Their only son, Charles Albert Miller, was b. there on 10 Jul 1910. On 17 Dec 1914, he/Mable were divorced, in Pascagoula. He charged her with desertion. She, then re-married a Wm M. Montieth on 25 Dec 1914.

Miles, then, married a widow, Mrs. Irene ROUSE Rerecich, on 22 Nov 1916 in/nr Pascagoula. For an unknown reason, Miles & Irene moved to an apt. in Evergreen Village, Conecuh, Alabama, in March of 1922. They were there only for 5 weeks, when Miles became ill, and died on 24 Apr 1922, of Chronic Nephritis.

He was duly bur. in the Potters' Field of the OLD HISTORICAL EVERGREEN CEMETERY, the very next day. Soon, Irene went back to Pascagoula and opened a Dry Goods Store.
