Michael and his future brother-in-law, my ancestor, James J. Walker were associated together
in the TN Militia before either married.  Michael and his family lived near him and Michaels
sister, James wife, later.  Michael Biles then moved with Mary Biles Walker and their parents
to Henry Co., TN.  I lost track of them there.  Mary had married 2nd Josiah Alderson and had
children, of whom I know nothing.
