MILES HILEMAN, a farmer of Manor township, was born in Armstrong county in 1863, son of Alexander and Elizabeth (Iseman) Heilman and grandson of Solomon Heilman, as the earlier generations spelled the name. He is a descendant of Peter Heilman (Sr.) and his wife Elizabeth (Harter). Solomon Heilman, who followed farming all his life, married Hannah Yount.

Alexander Heilman was born and reared in Armstrong county, and became extensively engaged in farming. His death occurred in 1909. To him and his wife were born ten children, namely: Sarah Jane, wife of Andrew Sheasley; Jackson; Park; Miles; Ada, wife of John Wolfe; Susanna, wife of Robert Fiscus; Millie, wife of William Hurtman; May, wife of William Miller; and Katie, wife of George Crownover. The parents of this family were members of the Presbyterian Church.

Miles Hileman attended the public schools of his native township, and was brought up amid agricultural surroundings. He has always been a farmer, and is now living on the old homestead.

In 1885 Mr. Hileman married Elmyra Kunkle, daughter of Jacob Kunkle, of Armstrong county. Nine children have been born of this marriage; Carrie, wife of William Cravenson; Dora, wife of Meriet Davis; Alexander; Tamer; Oldphrey; Elsie; Silvis; Lloyd Irin, and Laud. Mr. and Mrs. Hileman are members of the Presbyterian Church. The Heilman and Kunkle family are among the best known residents of Armstrong county.
