Nancy Miles Kaigler, was recently proven to be the grand daughter of American Revolutionary War Patriot, Thomas Miles. Nancy Miles was the daughter of Hartwell Miles and Mary Pillow.  In 1816, she married David Kaigler in Williamson County, Tennessee. They moved to Wilkinson County, Mississippi, where she died in 1821, leaving two small children, William and Isabella. David Kaigler, their father, took them back to Tennessee to live with Nancy’s parents. David Kaigler died four years after their mother, leaving Isabella and William to be raised by family members.
The children were returned to Mississippi, and both Isabella and William made their homes in Pike County, Mississippi.  On June 17, 1835, the Woodville Republican newspaper mentions John Kaigler, late quardian of Isabella Kaiger now Isabella Coney. Isabella Kaigler married Louis Newsom Coney and had four sons, three of whom died in the Civil War. Louis N. Coney died young as well, leaving Isabella a widow with the four boys to raise. Isabella remarried to Hiriam Norman and had eight more children. Isabella died in Pike County, Mississippi.
William Kaigler married Mary “Polly” Burkhalter. They had 13 children  and spent their lives in a part of  Pike County that later became Walthall county, Mississippi.
