    Obituary: Jesse Miracle, the subject of this obituary, was born in Belmont County, OH on McMahon's Creek, near Bellaire, on March 16, 1813, and died in Monroe County, OH March 1st, 1889. He was converted at the age of early manhood, under the ministry of Rev. Robert Taylor and united with the M.E. church, making that his home the remainder of his life. His death is a loss to the church and the community in which he lived, while in his home where his presence affable made sunshine, his loss is irreparable. He was a solid and faithful guide, a contant companion, and loving and kind father, and in the church he was true to all his interest. He as a regular and devout attenant on all the means of grace, for several years a member of the official board, filling the office of leader, trustee, and steward over forty years. His care for the church only ceased with his life. For some years he was a sufferer of asthma, and suffered in body more than many people knew, yet he never murmured. On December 5th, threee years previous to his death, he was stricken down with paralysis, sustaining two subsequent strokes, that last he survived about two weeks. He was married twice. He was married to Jane Scott, April 14, 1836, and with here shared many joys and sorrows, the light and shadows of 13 years. She, dying, left him with five small children to mourn her loss. He again married to Mrs. Miranda McVey, August 10th, 1850, who with five children survive him. He calmly conversed about his end, sent messages to his absent friends, and then peacefully fell asleep. Funeral services were conducted at the residence, after which the remains were taken to the Southerland Church and a sermon preached by the pastor Reverend M. Floyd, from Rev: 15: 13th verse, in the presence of a sympathizing audience, the writer assisting in the service.
