I have very little information on Susannah (Susan) Burt, and most of that was obtained from the Robert Mathis book on the Matthew Burt descendents. It states"
"84 year old Susan Miles is in the household of Alfred Wight on the 1860 Calhoun Co., AL census. She is his aunt, Susan Burt Miles, the sister of his mother, Martha Hewitt "Patsey" Burt Wight. Susan had lived with Martha probably since 1830, maybe before. She is also the aunt of Permelia Burt Wight. She died between 1860 & 1866. She is not on the Alabama State Census of 1866. Not in the household of Alfred Wight. She married John Miles probably in the 1790s and he died young. Susan sold her share of the Miles inheiritance back to the Miles family. Several Burt children married Miles children. Susan lived with family (probably Martha) after his death. Susan's sister, Nancy Burt Hall, named one of her daughters Susannah Hall, after Susan. Martha Burt Wightt also named her only daughter Susan."
Note that passage assumes a death date based on presence & absence in a census, which is always questionable.
___Regarding her husband John Miles, I have even less information, but can supply some geography. Circa 1790 the patriarch Aquilla Miles lived on Horn's creek where Lick Fork joined it, which is about 4 miles SSW of the town of Edgefield. On a 1870 county map there was a Burt property about 1.5 miles farther SW from the old Miles property, part of which is possibly the 60 acres sold by Richard Johnson to Moody Burt on 12 Mar 1798 and recorded. Unfortunately, much of this area is now a state park and some is under water of a small lake. The last time I looked the Edgefield website had no list of a Miles or Burt family graveyard, but one undoubtedly existed.
___As for the story of John Miles father being killed in North Carolina, I would be somewhat skeptical, but it could be checked. Aquilla Miles Esq's father, the patriarch Thomas Miles, very late in life around 1766 moved to Orange (now Caswell) county North Carolina on the northern border of the state and several of his sons and daughter's families moved with him (but not Aquilla nor his brother Abraham who moved to Hancock co., GA). It is more likely that this story got mixed up with the death of a later Aquilla Miles, a grandson of Abraham Miles & Elizabeth Tolbert via his son John Miles (1758-1825) and Peggy Warren. This Aquilla Miles died in Ashville, NC died in Asheville, NC on a business trip in 1871 and his body was returned to Lowndes county, AL for burial. He was the spouse of Elizabeth P. Davis.
___Since I get a large number of inquiries regarding the various Georgia and South Carolina branches of the Miles family of Maryland I am going to attempt to post below for other Miles researchers a descendancy list of the two sons of Thomas Miles and Catherine Poteet of Baltimore who settled in South Carolina (Aquilla) and Georgia (Abraham), respectively. The general migration patters for these families were:
__[1] descendents of Aquilla Miles usually went from South Carolina to Texas and Louisiana
__[2] descendents of Abraham Miles usually went to Alabama and Mississipi, particularily Lowndes county, Alabama.
___Some day I will get the entire Miles of Maryland list converted to HTML and posted somewhere. If not had every geneology website around have fine print boilerplate insisting they own anything posted to their site so they can re-sell it to you as an overpriced Cd I would have done it by now. I hope the indentation formatting holds, but suspect it will not.
