George Giles was born May 19, 1823, in Lincolnshire, England, and died July 22, 1898, son of William Giles and Sarah Huskinson.

          George Giles married Mary Greenwood on March 24, 1823, in Lincolnshire, England.  She died March 25, 1913.

          Children:  Thomas Greenwood (Rachel Cummings), Heber John (Susie Witt), Mary Elizabeth (Joseph Moulton), and Charles (Grace Aird).

          These people were born and raised in England.  They came across the plains in August, 1856, settling in Provo.  In the spring of 1860 they moved to Heber, Utah, where they lived in the fort and later built a nice brick house on Third North and Main Street.

          Mr. Giles was a blacksmith by trade.  He made plow points, etc., and was exceptionally good at his trade, having had several years apprenticeship in England.  His shop was just south of his home and was built of logs.  He was affectionately called “Uncle George Blacksmith.”  His home is now owned by a granddaughter, Mrs Pearl Giles Forman.  (p. 366 “How Beautiful Upon the Mountains” by the Wasatch County DUP)
