Miscellaneous notes from researcher: Ginny White Keefer:
Leonard Miles initially joined the Rev War in place of his father, Thomas Miles. Then Leonard came down with small pox and had to delay 5 or 6 weeks to recover. Leonard lived in Fairfield, SC for 15 or 16 years after the Rev War, then relocated to Lincoln Co TN. He married Mary ____ on Mar 31, 1785 at Fairfield, SC. The marriage was officiated by Rev. Ralph Jones, Baptist Minister. Leonard's widow, Mary, applied for a share of her late husband's pension when she was 80 years old. She would have been entitled to one half of what he was awarded. Mary Miles presented the pension board with her Miles family Bible, dated 1802. It listed all her children by name and age as I have them on my under Leonard and Mary's names. This is page one of Leonard's RW pension application that was typed [with a large number of other's pensions and posted on the internet. A huge thank you to William C. Graves for all his work in behalf of so many researchers.
