Miles, Marshall John (1893-1949)

Marshall John Miles was a salesman who lived at 1102 Denman Street in 1920.

Marshall was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on April 29, 1893. His father was Homer Adams Miles (1865-after 1920). Homer was born on March 7, 1865, in Charlestown, Massachusetts. On November 3, 1887, in West Chester, Pennsylvania, Homer married Florence C. Shaw (who was born about 1865).

According to a family rumour, the marriage between Homer and Florence ended, and Florence went away with a member of a carnival. The marriage did end in divorce on March 7, 1899, in Philadelphia. However, what happened to Florence after that is not clear. On November 29, 1899, in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, Homer married Mary Tice Pries, who was born in Blackwood, New Jersey, on March 14, 1866.

In 1900 and 1910, Homer and Mary were still living in Philadelphia, along with Marshall. By 1915, they had moved to Roselle Park, New Jersey, along with Marshall (although the index to the 1915 New Jersey state census describes him as “Marsh Annie Fries.”). In 1920 and 1930, Homer and Mary were in Roselle Park, Union, New Jersey. In 1940, Homer was a widower and was living in a boarding house in Roselle Park.

By 1915, Marshall had moved to Canada. On August 11, 1915, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, he married Viola Amelia Castle. She was born on August 28, 1895, in Faribault, Minnesota. Her father was Asa John Castle (1870-1953). Her mother was Martha Hohlbein (1873-1962).

In 1916, Marshall and Viola were living with Viola’s parents in Saskatoon, along with Zeta, who was Marshall’s and Viola’s young daughter. Marshall was working as a chef in a hotel.

In February 1917, Marshall enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force. His address was 430 Fifth Avenue in Saskatoon.

Marshall appeared in the Vancouver directory only in 1920. He was living at 1102 Denman Street, and he was working as a salesman.

In the 1921 Canada census, Viola was living at 119 East 21st Street [sic] in North Vancouver, British Columbia, along with her daughter, Martha Zeta Miles, her son, John Castle Miles, and her brother, Alton Asa Castle.

By 1930, Marshall and Viola were divorced.

It is not clear if Marshall ever re-married. He died in California on February 3, 1949. He was buried in Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery, in Colma, San Mateo County, California.

On June 20, 1930, in Los Angeles County, California, Viola married Ira William Merrill, who was a mining engineer. He was born on May 20, 1898, in Colorado. His parents were Arthur W. and Marie C. Merrill. Viola’s children, Martha and John, also took Merrill as their last name.

Ira died in California on March 11, 1965. He was buried in Santa Barbara, California.

Viola died in Santa Barbara, California on July 1, 1980.

 

Marshall and Viola had the following children.

 

Martha Zeta Miles (later Merrill)

Martha Zeta Miles was born in Saskatchewan, probably in Saskatoon, on June 15, 1916.

After her mother married Ira William Merrill, Martha took the last name Merrill.

Martha married Albert Newton Collins, who was born on August 26, 1914 in Harrisburg, Illinois.

Albert died on May 4, 1988.

Martha later lived in Ventura County, California. She died on October 10, 2005.

 

John Castle Miles (later Merrill)

John Castle Miles was born on December 11, 1920.

After his mother married Ira William Merrill, John took the last name Merrill.

On February 27, 1944, in Los Angeles County, California, he married Betty Louis Lund. She was born in Los Angeles about 1923. Her father was Oscar A. Lund. Her mother was Rebecca Putnam.

John lived for a time in San Diego, California. He died in California on May 12, 2011.
