Myra/Mira Marcus had 4-6 children out of wedlock it seems.

1880 NC Census

Henry age 18 is an apprentice blacksmith in the house of Robert A Crisp in Lenoir, Caldwell Co, NC.

Hosea age 14 is a servant in the house of Joseph and Sarah Webb in Lenoir, Caldwell Co, NC.

Laura, along with her Aunt Mary are in the house of John & Jane Baird in Lenoir, Caldwell Co, NC.

No sign of Noah after 1870, unless he is Jos. whichis entirely possible, given that he was born June 1870, then he would have been 9.

Plus Jos age 9 and Emsus? 7, both servants in the house of Wm & Nancy Moore, in Burke Co, NC.

1850-Mira Marcus-Johns River, Caldwell, NC
1860-Myra Marcus-Johns River, Caldwell, NC
1870-Mira Marcus-Johns River, Caldwell, NC

Johns River, I believe is/was about 5 miles northeast of Morganton, Burke Co, NC. and Morganton is about 20 minutes SW of Lenoir.
