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,
Susan, wife of Benjamine HAIL,

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. KY and then went to on to Andrew Co., MO above St. Joseph, MO

I was wondering if there is a list of names of known churches in Bedford County for the 1700 period? Further, if records exist for any of them and if so, where I might locate them?
