Information on my third great grandfather his last name is Miles and either from Georgia or Keren TX

+3 votes
He had a son named Joseph Harris Miles born in GA. Joseph was married to Eunice Johnson of Moultrie Georgia. I've been told a story my whole life that he was an American Indian scout for a officer named Davis Miles so he took is commanders last name because he was Apache. I can't find anything proving this.

Texas birth certificate:
Joseph Harris Miles as father and Eunice Undine Johnson as mother of Hazel DeAn Leon Miles

WW11 draft registration for Joe Harris Miles

Joseph H Miles in the household of Daniel M Miles (all born in Georgia but in Texas)

Daniel Miles in the 1900 census in Colquitt, GA

Mistic:  It looks to me as if Daniel Miles is white.  The fact that he's born in Georgia, if he were Indian, he would be listed on the census as such but also he most likely wouldn't have been Apache.  His son is listed as White on the Texas birth certificates for his children also.
