Miles was born in Sanbornton, New Hampshire, and married Electa Chamberlin in Ryegate, Vermont, in 1813. Orson Pratt and Lyman E. Johnson baptized him in April 1832 in Bath, New Hampshire. He joined the Latter Day Saints in Kirtland, Ohio by 1836, and Joseph Smith, Jr. named him one of the seven Presidents of the Seventy later that year. Sidney Rigdon and Hyrum Smith ordained him.
Miles moved to Missouri in early 1838, from which he was later expelled with the rest of the Mormons. He was among the first Mormons to settle in Nauvoo, Illinois. He is mentioned in a Doctrine and Covenants revelation, D&C 124:138. Miles died in 1845 at the home of Josiah Butterfield from complications from a fall.
