William Miles1

M, b. circa 1684, d. 1 January 1761
ChartsThelma L. Gray Pedigree Chart
     The LDS Ancestral File has him born in Dedham, Mass., 2 May 1682, the son of Benjamin Mills and Mary Thorne. He supposedly didn't get married until 1719, when he would have been 37 -- a bit late for marriage.

I have a problem with this idea because of the distance between Dedham and Haverhill and the fact that the AF also gives his death on 18 Apr 1734 back in Dedham.

By that time our William had removed to Durham, NH, making the distance to Dedham even greater.

Another possibility exists: Because there are records of only two children born in New Hampshire, of William Miles and Hannah Heath and, the AF listing of his death in 1734 back in Dedham; could he have gotten sick of his marriage to Hannah and just left for Dedham?

Another piece of evidence that supports this hypothesis, is the article in the New England Historic and Genealogical Register, 33:80, that lists the Church Records of the Rev. Hugh Adams at Durham, NH. The baptismal record for Josiah and sister Mary Miles only lists their mother Hannah.

We will perhaps never know what really happened, but this is a distinct possibility, and it raises a whole additional pedigree for Elizabeth Miles. at about William's ancestry. William was born at perhaps, Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts, circa 1684.1 He married Hannah Heath on 25 March 1719 at Durham, Strafford, New Hampshire, They were married by the Rev. Hugh Adams.1,2 William Miles died on 1 January 1761 at Canterburry, Merrimack, New Hampshire.3
