Miles S Wilson


Photographer:
Wilson
Parkersburg, W Va

Miles S Wilson
(Jun 1863 -)

There are not many city directories available for Parkersburg, WV. Available directories show him as photographer in Parkersburg from 1900 to 1921 with a brief stay in Marietta, OH in 1910. The stay must have been brief because on 14 Apr 1910, the US census places him in Parkersburg, WV, and a city directory for the same year places him with his wife, in Marietta, OH. Then by 1914 he is again in Parkersburg.
