CARTER, GRUBBS, HAIL, HATCHER, HUDGINS, JOHNSON, MILES, OXLEY, SAUNDERS, TURNER -
I am looking for the families of the 16 children of Isham Miles of Bedford and Franklin Counties, VA. These children were found listed in a record in Pulaski Co., KY involving an estate settlement which listed the heirs of William MILES, all of his siblings from 2 different marriages born in Cumberland, Buckingham, Bedford and Franklin Co.'s in VA. His father, Isham Johnson MILES, b. before 1748, was not mentioned in the estate settlement. Children from the first marriage with Judith Hatcher:
John MILES, deceased (b. before 1779), Elizabeth Hudgins, Judith Hudgins (dec'd).
The remaining children were half blood, mother Elizabeth Carter:
Joseph MILES,
Henry MILES, stayed in VA
Edward MILES,
Jordon MILES, stayed in VA
Thomas J. MILES, -> Robertson Co. TN
Samuel A. MILES,
Armistead J. MILES (b. 1796), 1829 ->KY, 1839-> MO
Polly, wife of David JOHNSON,
Rebecca, wife of John OXLEY,
Nancy, wife of Dabney GRUBBS,

Researcher, Robert B. Waddle stated: Major portion of above at the time lived in Robertson Co. TN although the record is not clear - the heirs of Juda Hudgins at least did so. Geo. W. Saunders, Elizabeth Saunders, Albin Turner, William Turner, Tilman Turner appear to have been residents of Wayne Co. KY. Benjamin Hail and wife Susan came to Pulaski Co.

BELL, TURNER -
I have been searching for my family for many years and always come to the same 'roadblock'--I can't seem to get past my great-great grandfather. His name was Francis Henry Bell and he had a large family of at least 12 children, his wife was Musidora Turner. I do have the 1870 Census listing him as a farmer. Also, the Lowrys' are family and I have them back to John and Abigail in 1797--their home being on the National Historic register. Their son, Elliott was a large property owner evidently and he owned many slaves. I do have some old register pages of his listing the slaves and their names and ages from the late 1700's to 1864. Would anyone be interested in this info?? Someday I hope to come to Bedford and search in person, I would love to see the Lowry home.

I am looking for data from the 1950 census report for the city of Bedford. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. My older sister has cancer and I'm writing a short book for her birthday which is in April. She was born in Bedford in 1952 and I want to include demographic data from the 1950 census to remind her where she came from. Also, at that time, the only hospital was a house located in town where we were both born. You wouldn't have any information about that would you? The name would be fine if that's all you have. Again, thank you in advance.
