Marriage*circa 1728He married Elizabeth Bayly, daughter of Maj. Richard Bayly (II) and Elizabeth Lacey (Lacey?), circa 1728 at Accomack Co, VA. Roger married Elizabeth Smith, widow of Valentine Smith, probably before May 1728. Elizabeth had one son, Bayly Smith, who eventually inherited his parents' land, but it appears that Roger and Elizabeth reared their family there. On 11 Feb 1724 Richard Bayly (possible father of Elizabeth) had assigned to Elizabeth Smith and Valentine Smith, her husband for L100 current money a 300-acre tract of land on the south side of Messongo Creek. The land was entailed in that Valentine was to have a life interest if his wife predeceased him. The land was to go to the lawful heirs of their "body."

According to the Turman research, it was on this date that Richard Bayly had assigned to Elizabeth Smith and Valentine Smith, her husband for L100 current money a 300 acre tract of land on the south side of Messongo Creek. The land was entailed in that Valentine was to have a life interest if his wife predeceased him. The land was to go to the lawful heirs of their body. Since Elizabeth was not named in the will of said Richard Bayly, the relationsip was not established. According to Whitelaw, Richard Bayly deeded the eastern 300 acres entailed to Elizabeth and Valentine Smith; the later died intestate in 1731 and his estate was administered to Roger Miles, who may have married Elizabeth, but a son Bayly Smith was the heir-at-law. In 1797 Bayly Smith (wife Elizabeth) left 100 acres each to his sons Spencer and Ralph and the balance to son Zorallingtine (Valentine?). A survey ten years later revealed that his was the eastern part of the whole tract, and that the last-named son received 197 acres, which included a small creek frontage and a little above the road, while the other two sons' lands were above him, with Spencer's part to the eastward. (Note: This land is in the present area know as Marsh Market on Messongo Creek.)3,4

Biography*1733The following is from Mrs. Turman's report on the Miles family. "William Miles, son of Roger and Elizabeth, was a minor when his father died in 1744. Since his mother was living, it was not necessary for him to have a guardian when such a small amount of cash was involved. No administration for his mother was found. William's first wife's name has not been found and only circumstantial evidence shows that the wife who survived him was Polly. The following was taken from another part of Ms. Turman's report. -- "William Miles, lineal ancestor of Darius appears to be the "William of Pocomoke" listed in the 1800 Census and he was the son of a Miles who died intestate circa 1764 (?) (probably typo - 1744). He is not the William who served in the Virginia Navy during the Revolutionary War. The inventory taken 9 Apr 1817, and report of settlement of estate returned to court 31 Jan 1825 names no heirs. The identified son of William was David Miles who married Margaret."

Miles and Margaret his wife sold 60 acres to James H. Fletcher for $700, bounded on the north by Charlotte and Ann Broadwater, on the east by J.H.

Biography*1810The 1810 Census shows her as Comfort Miles, head of family. There were no free white males listed. Free white females included 1 under age 10, 1 between age 16 and 26 and 1 over age 45. Comfort is assumed to be the oldest, born before 1765. The 1820 Census does not list a Comfort Miles. However, the 1830 Census shows her again as Comfort Miles, head of family. There were no free white males listed. Free white females included only 1 between age 50 and 60, implying that Comfort was born 1770-80. The ranges of these three births: 1755-74, before 1765, and 1770-80 do not have a common overlay between them. Based on these dates, the best guess at her birth is circa 1768, which is consistent with her marriage to George Miles in 1790, when she would have been about age 22. Since she is not listed in the 1840 Census as a head of family and there were no free white females listed in any other Miles families matching her age, it is assumed that she died between 1830 and 1840. Therefore, her death is shown as circa 1835.

Census1830She was listed as a resident in the census report in 1830 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA.3
