New Myler finding - Link to Thomas of Ireland? MILEY?

As many have you have read before, I have been searching for my g.g.grandfather William Myler from Ross Co., OH for some time now.

However, after looking again at the census records and searching them thoroughly, I have come up with two interesting items.

Item One: In the 1850 census my Wm. Myler is listed as William MILEY. This is a new spelling for me. But his family is listed with him:
William Miley, age 41, male, farmer, born OH
Experiane , age 40, born OH
Canedy , male, age 13, born OH
Anna Hemphill, age 12, female, born OH
John M. Miley, age 4, male, born OH
William, male, age 2, born OH

In the next household of this census is Experience's mother:
Charlotte McClelen, age 73, female, born MD
Nancy, age 45, female, born PA

Questions about these Mylers.
a. Has anyone run across this spelling? I happened on it while doing a soundex search, which I don't usually do because all the Millers in the census pop up!

b. Does anyone know if Anna's last name was Hemphill, or a middle name? She wouldn't have been married age 12, although it is possible. The census is just as above with no quotation marks after first names, but they took the time to rewrite "Miley" after John M.

In the 1860 census of Ross Co., I find them listed as MEILER.

Copied exactly:
William Meiler, age 51, farmer, born PA (not OH)
Experiance ", age 50, born PA (not OH)
James C. ", age 22, farmhand, born PA
John ", age 14, farmhand, born OH
James Young, male, farmhand, born OH
Edward F???, age 20, male, farmhand, born OH
Henry James, age 18, male, black, day laborer, born OH
Levi James, age 16, male, black, day laborer, born OH

Where are the rest of the children? Anna and William? William lived to old age; I have his descendants. He would have been 12 years old! What happened to Anna? Who was she? Experience's obituary states she had five children (James Canedy, John Milton, William Riley, Anna Hemphill? and ??)

Also, this census states William's name was MEILER, not Myler. And he was born in PA. He would have been born around 1809. If he was born in 1809 in PA, is this the Wm. Myler who "went to Missouri" and the family never heard from again? that is in the Myler book?

Does anyone have a copy of that? I seem to have misplaced mine!

Thanks for any input, ideas, rule outs, etc.
