United States Census, 1850

In the 1860 census, Rebecca Moore Miles appears to be living with a family named Davis. Her father and older brother, George, are in New Jersey. Her mother and other brothers are still in Norristown. The family is reunited in the 1870 census but Rebecca the younger is still not with them. In 1880, Rebecca Miles Moore in the household of Brinton (transcribed as Burton) and Rebecca Moore Miles, recorded as mother-in-law to the head of household.

Father = Jesse Moore, but not the one married to Sarah Bloom.

Mother = Rebecca Miles (this is not an error, she is recorded as Rebecca Miles on death certificates of other children)

Rebecca Moore Miles was born in Norristown, Montgomery, Pennsylvania, not Chester County.
Thanks so much I have not found out how to use all of the help that is available. Does this mean that her mother's name is also Rebecca miles?
Yes, the mother was Rebecca Miles before she married and became Rebecca Moore. The daughter was Rebecca Moore before she married and became Rebecca Miles. Talk about confusing! lol

In 1900 Sarah is widowed and living with her son Charles who was born after 1850. This would make six known children. Note that she is recorded as being the mother of 6 with 6 living. So all of her children are accounted for and Rebecca isn't one of them.

Thank you!!!!! Who would guess that  I would have a great great grandmother with the name Rebecca Miles (Moore) and her mother is Rebecca Moore (Miles) that is weird. By the way the name is Briton as it goes on down the tree at least twice.  But you are a great wiki tree-er.
Aww, thank you. So glad I could help. :)
