  • With reference to Ellen Maria Miles
  • The DN for Ellen Maria MILES says her father was John MILES, no mother given.
  • The only John MILES that could fit the bill was born in 1825 and married Millicent Sarah PALMER.
  • By whom he had 13 children.
  • None of them were called Ellen,
  • But there was an Emma without a birth date and no given spouse (all the others have spouses).
  • So, either the DN is incorrect or she was an 'illegitimate child', or he 'married someone prior to Millicent', whom he married at the age of 26.
  • ----------------------------------------
  • Millicent Sarah Palmer could not have been Ellen Maria Miles mother.
  • She would only have been 14 when Ellen was born.
  • John would have been 21 a bit young for marriage?
  • He married Millicent in 1851 & Cornelius was born in 1852.
  • Ellen was born 5/5/1846 in Bathurst
  • Cornelius was born 1/24/1852 in Bathurst
  • Ellen named her son John Miles Marshall.
  • Her great grandson was also names John Miles Marshall
  • Her death notice says her father was John Miles & her mother unknown
