In Memoriam~Mrs. Susan B. Liles

Susan Brownfield Davis was born abt 1808, a daughter of Lt. Joseph B. Davis and his wife Anne Keene. She was the last borne of eleven children having 5 sisters and 5 brother as siblings. Her father served in the Revolutionary War as a Private and Lieutenant of Cavalry from 1780 to 1783. His children received a pension for his service in the conflict.

Sometime before 1839, Susan Brownfield Davis married James D. Liles of Lilesville, Anson County, North Carolina.  James D. Liles was borne abt 1810, a son of Eli Liles and Betty Crocker.  I have seen on line that they were married on 2 June 1836 but this date though precise was not sourced and most likely made up.

Susan B. Liles and James D. Liles had two known children:

i. Mary Thomas Liles, born abt 1839, Anson County, North Carolina; married Maj. Hugh Giles Fladger; died 22 Jan 1908, Lilesville, Anson County, North Carolina.

ii. Joseph Liles, born abt 1841, Anson County, North Carolina; died 8 Feb. 1862 in the Battle of Roanoke Island.

Susan Brownfield (Davis) Liles died on 1 November 1882 leaving her husband, James D. Liles surviving. Her son, Joseph Liles, born 1841 was killed on 8 February 1862 at the Battle of Roanoke Island (7-8 February 1862).  

IN MEMORIAM. "Mrs. Susan B. Liles was about 80 years old and died Nov. the 1st, 1882. She was the mother-in-law of Hugh Fladger, who died about two months before. Thus the family is doubly bereaved. Sister Liles had been afflicted for several years. When her son-in-law, to whom she was devoted, died, the stroke was so sudden that she gradually declined from day to day till death set the prisoner free. She was a true, good Christian woman. All loved her. During her sickness at times she was not as well satisfied as she desired. Her mind partook of the feeble condition of her body. In her last moments she was fully comforted, and with her last breath, said "she would soon be at home." God bless the bereaved family, and bring them all to the kingdom of heaven. O. J. B.

[The Anson Times, Wadesboro, North Carolina, 30 Nov 1882, Thu, Page 3, Col 3.]

James D. Liles, surviving husband, passed away on  29 May 1893 in Anson County, North Carolina.
