  1. Miles’ wife was Rebecca. His father was born in New York and mother in Indiana. Rebecca was born in Pennsylvania. Miles was born in August 1836 in Indiana. This according to the 1900 Census for Washington County, Iowa. They had seven children — all living away from home in 1900. Maybe it’s a Bradford cousin — 1st, 2nd or 3rd???
