Files - Mitchell's - Ellis Co, Tx 1870's

Searching for Myrah Mitchell, ca. 1842? in Tn. her parents were William L. Mitchell and Mary Annie McCulloch. She m. ?? Files. I am not sure I have ever found her on any census. She wrote a letter to her Uncle Henry Eustace McCulloch on 13 Nov 1870-71 (not sure of the last digit of the year, there is a dark spot on it) seeking advice about the murder of her brother Andrew Jackson "Jack" Mitchell. At the time of the letter she was in Milford, Ellis Co, Tx. She signed the letter Myrah Files and said Mr. Files said hello, but no given name for her husband.

On the 1870 Hill Co, Tx census I found a Jeremiah Files, 63, b. in S.C. and Minnie Files, b. 1844 in Tn with three children ages 7-5 & 3. This is the only female I have found who could possible fit Myrah.

Can anyone help me on this?
