Eignor Family Genealogy Forum
I am researching the Merckel/Merkel/Merkle/Markle/Miracle family tree. In my research I have encountered too many associations between my family members and some of the Eignor family members to just be coincidence. In the 1710 to 1715 timeframe, Peter Eygener/Eigner/Eignor was in Livingston Manor, Ulster Co, NY with my family patriarch Johann Frederich Merckel. The oldest son of Johann Frederich was Lorentz Merckel/Merkle who moved to Northampton Co, PA in about 1737 after his father died in 1735. Lorentz and his only son Frederick Markle/Miracle moved to the Mecklenburg/Lincoln Co, NC area in 1767. Immediately upon arrival there, they bought land from Jacob Eignor/Eigner; Jacob was also the chain bearer for the survey. Frederick's wife was named Ann Eve (Anna Eva) LNU. Frederick had several sons; at least one of them, Peter, is named for Ann Eve's father or grandfather. Do you have any information that might better connect our two families using this starting information? Tahnks, Doug
