Miles Burial Ground, Town of Catlin, Chemung County, New York - 2008
Hi Joyce,

                The attachments are, first of all, a photograph of a burial site in Catlin township off the Johnson Hollow Rd.  This burial location is not on your site, probably because it is quite a ways off the beaten path on private property, and is hidden in some dense woods.  I learned about it while doing some on site work for my ancestors homestead next to the Miles property.  The second attachment gives some very brief information along with the GPS coordinates for it.  If you need any other information, please let me know.

 On the 15th of June, 1876, my Great ? Great Aunt, Eleanor BROWN Starks bought two acres of land in Catlin Township from Emaline Miles.  This parcel joined the 61 acres that Eleanor already owned, and was bounded on the East by a 50 acre plot that had been purchased by Eleanor?s father , my Great ? Great Grandfather ? Nathaniel Brown.  The property was accessed by taking the Bucks Run Rd. off the Johnson Hollow Rd.
 Emaline Miles was born in 1808 [own surname not given here].  Her husband Adam Miles was born in 1803 and died in 1853.  The 1850 census for Catlin shows that the Miles family included four children, ages 10, 12, 14 and 16 years old.  Both Adam and Emaline are buried on the original homestead in the woods behind the remains of the house foundation.
 The GPS co-ordinance?s for the grave site are: N 42° 16. 104?   W 076° 51. 745?
