Files Family Genealogy Forum
I'm looking for information on a lady of this name from around the 1850s in Illinois. We've always listed the parents of my great-grandfather, Joseph Ira Bales, as William Bales and Julia Anne Miles. Recently I've come across birth records for two of their children that give Julia's surname as Files. Joseph was born in Ill., probably Vermillion Co., in 1875 or 76. One of his sisters was born in Crawford Co., Ks. in 1892. Does anyone have a marriage between a Julia Anne Files and William Bales in their family tree?
William may have been born in Ohio.
