I am interested in the family of Joseph Black and Mary "Polly" White. Any information is most welcome. In particular information on their son Joseph who according to a family genealogy done by Samuel Black McCormick;
"Died in the War of the Rebellion. Joseph Black was a member of the Southern army, in the Trans-Mississippi Department, and no definite information was ever received as to the date of his death."
I would love to know how and where Joseph died during the Civil War. I do not know what unit he fought for, however, I would believe it would have been a unit from Alabama.
Also according to Samuel Black McCormick refering to Joseph Black;
He moved from Pennsylvania to Washington Court house, now Koenton, Alabama. He married Mary White, who was born in South Carolina. Joseph Black was at one time mayor of Mobile, Alabama."
