First Generation

1. Laurence MYRACLE. Born in 1760 in Burke County, North Carolina.

Laurance Miracle was born about 1760 in Burke County, North Carolina. He resided in Claiborne County, Tennessee in 1807. He was in Henderson County by 1830. He appears as Laurence Marcle on the 1790 census in the Morgan District of Burke County, North Carolina. In 1807, the name "Lawerence Mircale appears as a witness on a deed in Grainger County, Tennessee for property now in Claiborne County. In 1808, Lawrence was in charge of a Powell Valley road crew. (Jacob Myracle was a member of the crew). Larance Maricle appears in the 1830 census of Henderson County, Tennessee, listed as age 60-70. Jacob Myracle and Peter Myracle probably were his sons. The John Maricle and Henry Maricle listed in the 1830 census in Henderson County were probably his sons also. Abraham Myracle might be either a son or grandson. Lawrence Myracle and his family moved to Warren County, Tennessee, after 1810, but moving to Henderson County in the 1820s. At least one son seems to have stayed in Claiborne County to be the ancestor of the Miracle family found there.

On 1 Nov 1785 when Laurence was 25, he married Margaret WAIR, in Lincoln County, North Carolina.

They had the following children:
2 i. Peter (1780-1849)
