Lt. James Madison Giles is my GG grandfather (verified); but, there is conflicting data as to the parents.  Some say Thomas Tabb Giles never left Virginia?

      Thomas Tabb Giles, the son of Governor Giles, never left Virginia, was never a farmer in Monroe County, TN and never married.  He was a lawyer and an novice architect who designed several houses in Virginia.    I am not a descendant of the governor either, and I can't understand why people invent family trees that don't exist.  The answer is, No.  Lt. James Madison Giles was not a son of Thomas Tabb Giles.   Everything I have said here is verifiable.  Just contact the Library of Virginia or any reputable agency and they will confirm it.
