Biography*1862War on the Shore: Somerset man killed a Union soldier
Delmarva Now Published 3:41 p.m. ET July 5, 2014
Updated 10:10 a.m. ET July 7, 2014

When the sun rose Sunday morning, Aug. 31, 1862, farmer Southey F. Miles was ready to do routine chores when he noticed men on horseback coming up his long lane. In just minutes, Miles, 39, the father of seven children, would murder one of them. Suzanne Coons, 84, of near Marion Station, related the details of that day that is still remembered in Somerset County.

"Southey F. Miles lived in Coulbourn's Creek area of Marion Station. He was a big farmer, a Southern sympathizer, very much so," she said. "The Union Army had a camp at Coulborne's Creek. They knew the Southern sympathizers around there were sending stuff down the bay to the South. I think it was routine at the time for the Union troops to travel around the farms in the area and get food — cows, pigs, whatever they wanted — and of course the local people were scared to death and gave it to them.

"I think they had been to Southey's house several times, taking whatever they wanted."

With a strong, clear voice, Coons related the details of death.

"Finally, this one time, they were comin' up the lane. He had his big, pretty, pretty, two-story house down the lane, a long lane it was. He saw them coming so he went and got his gun. He said to his wife, 'I've had enough of this.' "

Another member of the Miles family later recalled that the farmer said to his wife, "Christiana, get me my gun" as the Yankees approached the house.

"From the upstairs window he shot one of the soldiers and killed him dead," Coons said, her words coming slowly.

The man he killed was George T. Dix, just 19, a corporal in Co. K, 1st Regiment Eastern Shore Maryland Volunteers. Miles then fled his home.

"He was able to escape. The family story, I have always heard it, he got to the home of my great-grandfather, Henry White Hall. He was a very good friend of Southey Miles — even their wives were good friends, always close. Henry White Hall said, 'You go back into Dunn Swamp and hide and I will bring you food and keep you supplied with what you need.' He did that for three or four months until somebody told on them and the Federal troops found out where he was hiding and he was arrested."

Coons paused as she recounted the secrets of the family.

"My great-grandfather was also arrested."

Confirmation of a murder

Even though it has been almost 150 years since the Civil War ended, people remember the one Somerset County man who took on the Yankees single-handedly.

Coons said the case was heard in Federal Court in Baltimore: "They both were found not guilty and sent back home."

Research by Ray Thompson and his staff of the Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture at Salisbury University found a record indicating Miles was about to be drafted in the Union Army.

"In the 1862 Enrollment Record he is noted as being 40 and, the record says, he 'absconded for killing a man.' So that pretty much confirms that he really did murder someone," Thompson said.

Just a year earlier, Miles had his eye on being a lawman. In 1861, he was a candidate for sheriff in Somerset County, but lost by just two votes.

In a semi-autobiographical sketch that appeared in the "Portrait and Biographical Record of the Eastern Shore of Maryland," published in 1898, Miles noted he began to work in the oyster business when he was 16 and was so engaged at the start of the Civil War. His father, William, was also a waterman, but in later years became a farmer and owned land on Coulbourne's Creek and lived at the "old homestead." It was there that Southey was born April 27, 1822. He married Christiana Roach in 1846. They were the parents of seven children.

He stated his "sympathies were with the South," and "several times was arrested by the Federals" because of his "known opinions."

It appears that in the early years of the war, Miles "went to Virginia and for six months remained there selling goods to the soldiers." He doesn't explain the circumstances that led to his capture and imprisonment, for five months, at Fort McHenry. There is no confession of a murder, nor does Miles make any mention of Henry White Hall.

Thompson and his staff also found an entry in the April 26, 1864, edition of The (Baltimore) Sun noting that "Southey F. Miles was arrested yesterday and locked up in the military prison by order of Brigadier-General Lockwood. The charge against him was not stated."

The June 17, 1864, edition of the The Sun carried the following news brief: "Southy F. Miles of Somerset County, Md., charged with the murder of George F Dix of Co. K ... was acquitted and released from prison yesterday," (June 16, 1864). An apparent error in the Union muster roll noted that Dix was "killed in action," Oct. 31, 1861. The Sun gives the date as the "month of August 1862."

"Other damage"

Kellee Blake, retired director of the National Archives-Mid Atlantic Region, who is working on an extensive and in-depth book about Civil War history on the lower Eastern Shore, found the Compiled Service Record of George F. Dix that includes a date and an historically important remark. "Killed August 31, 1862, by Southey F. Miles a notorious Rebel."

Blake also learned details of the case.

"After the war, Miles sued the officer who arrested him for Dix's murder. Miles sued former Lt. William F. Porter of Co. K for trespass and seizure in the District Court of Somerset County on Oct. 2, 1865. The lawsuit claimed Porter 'broke in,' trod down and destroyed the grass, with force and arms entered and 'alarmed the family,' and did 'other wrongs.' Miles also charged Porter with taking away his gun, canoe, 20 bushels of corn, and horse and carriage. Miles demanded a total of $3,000 in damages."

By the time Porter "broke in," Miles was on the run.

According to Blake's research, Porter made the following statement: "Col. James Wallace, commanding my regiment, justly incensed at this murder, sent out to me and others the most imperative orders to arrest Miles at all hazards, even if his life should be the forfeit in so doing. Acting under these orders as well as more specific orders from my company commander, I lost no time in taking all needful measures to secure his arrest. To this end I entered the private house of Miles in search of him and, failing to find him, took the gun with which he had committed the murder ..."

As for the other claims in the suit, they may have been a culmination of other issues involving Dix and Miles' role as a "notorious Rebel."

"Porter claimed," said Blake, "that on Sept. 1, 1862, while serving on a Coast Guard duty to stop blockade running and the carrying of Rebel mail, Corp. George T. Dix of his company 'was shot dead by one Southey F. Miles, the plaintiff in the suit, a notorious and avowed Rebel. After committing the cold-blooded murder, Miles made his escape to the South and, as I am informed, afterward acted in a position of trust under the Rebel government.

"The case was investigated by the military authorities at the time, but failing to secure the person of Miles, nothing was then done. The Grand Jury of Somerset Co., notoriously Rebel affiliating with him failed to find a bill and hence after a short stay South, he returned to home. Subsequently, Miles was arrested brought to Baltimore the case investigated by a military commission & for want of proper testimony dismissed. Without stopping to remark as to the propriety or impropriety of this, I proceed to state my actions in connection with the murder for which suit is now brought.' "

"I know of at least one other verifiable murder of a Union soldier on the Shore, and that is the murder of Private Noah Patrick, Company D, 1st Md. E.S. during a shootout with escaped convict Gilley Bundick in December 1863," Blake said.

The Sun also reported that on June 18, 1864, "Southey F. Miles, Somerset County, P and A and W Sterling, Anamessex, Somerset County, and Benjamin Somers, took the oath of allegiance yesterday at Colonel Woolley's office." That oath required an individual deemed to be sympathetic or supporting Confederacy to "pledge loyalty and allegiance to the Union."

After the fact

Whatever happened that day on Miles' farm remains a mystery. Yet the act of killing a Federal soldier was rare on the Shore, and that the family of his friend, Henry White Hall, would hand down a story involving their ancestor in complicity is also unique.

After the war, Miles remained at the family homeplace and resumed farming. In 1867, he was elected sheriff and soon after was "captain of the oyster police forces" (which became the Maryland Department of Natural Resources) at an annual salary of $1,200. He ran, unsuccessfully, for a seat in the state legislature in 1870.

Miles reported he was appointed "collector of customs for the port of Crisfield" during the first administration of President Grover Cleveland. He served two years and resigned, he said, in favor of his son, Alonzo.

By 1888, he retired from farming and operating a general store in Marion Station. In 1897, he built a new home, apparently independent of the old Miles homeplace. His wife died in 1885. A weather-worn tombstone notes Southey Francis Miles died in 1900. He was remembered for the more than 37 years as a trustee and steward of the Methodist Protestant Church.

He died a wealthy man. Thompson's staff discovered Miles was well-to-do by the opening of the war.

"In 1860 he is listed in census records as a farmer worth $12,000, and his real estate was valued at $5,000. He was a prominent land owner in 1870 with property valued at $23,500 and personal real estate at $8,050," Thompson said.

The old Miles home is gone, but the site is better known today as the Tom Whittington Farm along Coulbourne's Creek, north of Marion Station.

"When Norman Whittington bought the old homeplace, he destroyed it and built that brick house that's there now. Josh Miles, Southey's grandson, got all the family graves moved to St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Quindocqua," Coons said.

"Southey F. Miles contributed a lot to the community and this area," she said. "I think he murdered that Yankee because he was simply stealing things off the farm. He just said he had enough of it."

Land deed named in*11 August 1757He was named in a deed on 11 August 1757 at tract Bundelin's Quarter, Mispillion Hundred, Kent Co, DE. Bundelin's Quarter, 300 ac (which had been surveyed in 1735 at 300 ac), having been seized for debt of John Rudolphus Bundelin and sold by sheriff at auction to Thomas Nixon [since 28 Mar of same year?] on this date conveyed by sheriff to Thomas Nixon. Bundelin must have contested this; he left Bundelin's Quarter in his will written 13 Aug 1758 to Samuel Beavans Turner (and died by Oct 1758), and in adjoining survey for Jehu Turner in 1762 this land is labeled Alate claim'd by John Rodolphus Bundeline." Apparently Nixon prevailed: see 11 Aug 1768 where Thomas Nixon conveyed a chunk of this land via Samuel Turner to Samuel Johnson. Note that most of that same chunk of Bundelin's Quarter had been designated as part of John Turner's land when Thomas Davison's land was surveyed in 1750; Davison's survey itself showed considerable of Bundelin's Quarter. Other areas of Bundelin's Quarter were designated as "Abraham Smith's Land" and "Land late of John Dyer" on Davison's 1750 survey. Had Bundelin somehow sold these pieces of Bundelin's Quarter but never legally conveyed them to John Turner, Smith and Dyer, or were they just renters? How could Davison's survey so significantly overlap Bundelin's previously surveyed land? It looks as if the surveyor was unaware of the 1735 survey, but aware of the tenure, of whatever nature, of Turner and the others. After the sheriff's sale, the original boundaries of Bundelin's Quarter were observed, at least on the east end.2

Kent Co DE tax lists, is scratched off in 1765 and does not appear thereafter; he was still living in 1769 per his father's will. He may have been part of the 1760s migration to Onslow Co, NC, but is not on the tax lists there for 1769-1771.

Land warrant*11 March 1758He was granted a warrant for land on 11 March 1758 at Kent Co, DE. It contained 30 acres.2 
Tax list*between 1759 and 1782He was on the tax list between 1759 and 1782 at Mispillion Hundred, Kent Co, DE. In some instances John seems to appear instead of Jehu, but the writing could sometimes be read either way and the name may have been miswritten or miscopied on some of the lists. Steve Turner feels it is likely that Jehu, not John, was actually the person in question on these apparently discrepant lists. Jehu in much handwriting is easily mistaken for the far more common name John, whereas the opposite would be a much more unlikely mistake to make.2 
Marriage*circa 1762He married Nicey Adams, daughter of Roger Adams and Elizabeth 'Betty' (of Chas I) Nutter, circa 1762 at Kent Co, DE.2 
Land wit deed9 August 1762Jehu (of Samuel II) Turner witnessed a deed on 9 August 1762 at 127 acre tract, Mispillion Hundred, Kent Co, DE. Elijah Turner & wife Mary, d/o Arthur Hill, sell their part of 127 ac Mispillion Hd tract [part west of road] to Samuel Bevins Turner for £30. Witt: Jehu, & Sarah Turner [Q:108].2

Est Settm't F-in-law*9 September 1766He was named in the settlement of his father-in-law's estate on 9 September 1766 at Dorchester Co, MD. His wife was shown as Nicey Turner, daughter of Roger Adams, in the settlement of the estate of Roger Adams.3 
Land bought*9 February 1767He bought land on 9 February 1767 at tract Turner's Choice (NW), Mispillion Hundred, Kent Co, DE.

In his will Samuel Turner gave unto his well beloved Samuel Bevans Turner and to my daughter Joyce and my daughter Loar (Lear or Leah) and to my son Henry Turner and my son Jehu Turner one shilling sterling to each of them to be paid by my executors after by decease. To my son Elias Turner the whole and sole advantage and benefit of a deed of sale past to me from Andrew Calwell to him and his heirs. To my well beloved wife Sarah Turner all the rest of my estate of all my money that I am possessed with. My well beloved wife and my son Jehu Turner whole and sole executors. Witt: Serfener Murphy, Jeremiah Morris & Jeremiah Morris Junior.1,4 
Land sold*7 October 1788He sold land on 7 October 1788 at unnamed tract, Pocomoke Hundred, Worcester Co, MD. According to Ruth Dryden, John Turner, son of Samuel, sold to Samuel Taylor, son of Solomon, 100 acres in Pocomoke Hundred, no name of tract, which she assumed was Samuel's Adventure. According to Steve Turner, Samuel Turner II did not have a son John, but did have a son Jehu, and this may have been him. Steve provided the following transcription. "This Indenture made the Seventh Day of October Anno Domini Seventeen hundred and Eighty Eight Between John Turner Sun and heir of Samuel Turner of Worcester County in the State of of Maryland of the one part and Samuel Taylor (Son of Solomon Taylor) of the County and State aforesaid of the other Part Witnesseth that the Said John Turner for and in Consideration of the sum of five Shillings Current money of maryland to him in hand paid by the said Samuel Taylor before the Sealing and delivery of these presents, have bargained and Soled and by these presents doth give grant bargain and Sell unto the said Samuel Taylor his heirs and Assigns all the Lands that lieth in Pocomoke hundred and County aforesaid that formerly did belong to Samuel Turner being the same or Part of the Same lands whereon a certain Edmond Cropper now liveth with all the priviledges and Appertenances thereunto belonging or in any manner appertaining To have and to hold the aforesaid Land and premises as above Set forth and discribed, unto the said Samuel Taylor his heirs and assigns forever. In testamoney Whereof the said John Turner to these presents his hand hath sett and seal affixed the day and year first above written." Witnesses were two JPs., and John Turner proved it himself before them the same day, Oct 7. In the margin it says Delivered Saml Taylor Carpenter. (Source: Worcester Co, MD Liber L & M: p. 434 of Liber M). Steve reports there seems to be no evidence if or when Samuel II sold or disposed of Samuel's Adventure after the taxes were last known paid on it in 1762. It was not specifically mentioned in his will, unless it was part of the rest of his estate he left to his wife. Since the price was only 5 shillings, perhaps it was some remaining minor interest Jehu had in the land that was being purchased to obtain a clear title. (NOTE: It is also possible that John of Samuel Turner I was still living had even survived to 1788 or later if he was the John son of Samuel who sold unspecified Pocomoke Hundred land of his father's in 1788.)5,2 
Will - Brother's*22 February 1793Jehu was named in his brother's will on 22 February 1793 at Mispillion Hundred, Kent Co, DE.

Biography*between 1838 and 1850The Turner family moved nearer to the town of West Point, Indiana following the death of Jesse and prior to 1850. West Point, Tippecanoe County, Indiana is located in the Northwestern portion of Indiana. The town of West Point is a short distance southwest of Lafayette, Indiana. It is a small town with few businesses, in 1993 there was an antique store and a bar, with no real main street. The West Point Cemetery, where Zipporah Turner is buried along with her son James Turner, is located in the southeastern portion of the town. The cemetery is well maintained and is laid out in two distinct sections. The south section is called the old cemetery. This section was left to disrepair for many years but was restored in the 1950's by the Boy Scout Troop in the town. The northern section is modern and maintained by the caretaker and his crew. Samuel Bevins Turner is buried in the old section and his tombstone in worn and has been broken. James and Zipporah are buried in the new section and their tombstones have been replaced by family members within the last fifty years. Their tombstones are of black granite, with little writing on them, only their name, birth and death years. At first I was fooled by the newness of the stones, as in my search I expected to find stones of a similar condition as Samuel's. The grave of Jesse Turner is not located in the West Point Cemetery. I do not know where they were living when Jesse died. Once I find the exact location of the farm where Jesse and Zipporah lived I might be able to find his burial location. I do know where the James Turner farm was located near West Point and this is where Zipporah lived in the 1850 Indiana Census. The farm was located on "Turner Road" which intersects with the highway going through West Point near the northeastern corner of town. The road runs East to West for about 3 miles. James Turner farm was located on the north (or west because the road turns slightly south just before the creek) side of Turner Road just before you cross the Flint Creek.1
