Note that there is an absence of Scotch Irish names like James, Robert, Joseph, and William.
A possible sister for GW would be Eliza Ann Kile who marr 9 Apr 1840 Tyler Co marr bk 1 pg 101, to Benjamin S Martin, by Geo Monroe, same minister & page as Eli Ferrell and Rachel Lewis.
There is a connection with Kiles and Underwoods, but whether they are the right ones or not I don't know. Luther E Kile was exec of estate of Joseph Underwood who may be the brother of my Sarah. This Luther E Kile died 1909 appraisal in Fudiciary settlement book 7 pg 287 & 304. Probate pg 211, settlement 8-47, 9-1. His widow was Clara and kids were Zella Swiger, resided Adamston, Della (Mrs Homer) Strosnider, resided Clarksburg, and minors Charles E "Clark" resided Salem, Wayne, Edward, & Kenneth all resided Center Point, as did widow. Luther also adm of Ruth Bates estate in 1898 & exec of Hunry Cumberland in 1899. - - GW's son Andrew has a son Luther, are they the same person?
