Genealogy; As Best As We Can Figure

Genealogy (from Greek: ?????, genea, "family"; and ?????, logos, "knowledge") is the study and tracing of families. Modern genealogical research is a complex process that involves more than affixing a collection of names to a pedigree chart. Rather, genealogy involves identifying ancestral or descendant families by using historical records to establish biological, genetic, or familial kinship.

Reliable conclusions are based on the quality of sources (ideally original records, rather than derivatives), the information within those sources (ideally primary or firsthand information, rather than secondary or secondhand information), and the evidence that can be drawn (directly or indirectly) from that information. In many instances, genealogists must skillfully assemble indirect or circumstantial evidence to build a case for identity and kinship. All evidence and conclusions, together with the documentation that supports them, is then assembled to create a cohesive "genealogy" or "family history."

Traditionalists may differentiate between these last two terms, using the former to describe skeletal accounts of kinship (aka family trees) and the latter as a "fleshing out" of lives and personal histories.

"Ephraim Liles fled from VA. to N.C. on account of the Indians having what they called Deer Walkers and Ephriim Liles was out hunting deer and saw an Indian wrapped in deer skins walking on his feet and hands imitating a deer in order to get near enough to shoot them. Ephriam Liles saw this Indian at a distance and shot him for a deer and wounding him badly. He took the wounded Indian to the Indians home and expressed great regret for his mistake and compromised with the Indians by giving them his fine horse. Later on the Indian died and Ephraim's friends informed him they were going to kill him. Ephraim fled to N.C. and was followed by some of the Indians but kept concealed until; the Indians returned. Ephraim Liles' grave is well known by his descendants on the bank of the Pee Dee River in Anson County, N.C." - Henry Liles with at least one of his brothers, Anderson, settled in Carroll County, Tennessee early in their lives.
