It is estimated that Miles was born about 1792 based on 1810 census that has a male under 16. Miles & Amos Slade & William Chappell were witnesses to deed Jan 16, 1817, when Thomas L. Chappell and wife Martha sold Southampton Co. land to Amos Drake. Land bordered Joshua Slade's line.2
     Miles married Disa Turner, daughter of Ephraim Turner and Elizabeth [?] [Turner], on December 21, 1818 in Southampton County, Virginia.3 Miles does not show up on 1830 or any later census or other records that we could find. This would indicate that he may have died between 1820 and 1840.
