Steven Butler's Family History Website

The Many Miles of Tennessee

I created this page for two reasons: 1.) To share what I have learned about the Miles families of Tennessee with other family history researchers, and 2.) in the hope that other researcher(s) who visit this page might have the information I seek, which would help me break through the proverbial "brick wall" that prevents me tracing my Miles family line back any futher than circa 1810. If you do have any useful information or would just like to make a comment or ask a pertinent question, please send email to docbutler@yahoo.com. Thanks!
