I got some more information from the family of Eva Sparks, sister to Nettie G Sparks Black Hall. Nettie had Katie Black and Willie Black when she married Lucius Luke Hall in Prairie Co AR. I had never found who she was married to before she m Hall, just that she was a Black when she m him. The family of Eva said Eva m Arlo Taylor II, son of Wm Taylor and Margaret Mince. I had seen in one census, this was Margaret's second marriage and found it in Desoto Co MS, she was a Black when she m William Taylor.
In 1910 Prairie Co AR, I had found this couple, William and Margaret, married 37 years, and was Margaret's second marriage, his first. He was born England. She was first married to a Black and her son, ? BLACK, was the first husband of Nettie.I found a marriage of Eliza M Black to William Taylor, DoSoto Co MS, 17 Mar 1873. That means Eliza M (Margaret) is not only themother of the younger Arlo Taylor, who m Eva Sparks, but the mother in law of Nettie Sparks too. below is the family in 1880, this time William listed as born in NJ. some have him born NY, but I am sure he was born Eng, because one census, it asked for his year of immigration, I think, and had a year.

Eliza Margaret Mince married Benjamin F Black in Floyd Co GA, 1860. He was presumed dead by 1870 census. These children, Robert, Mattie and Mary are listed in that 1880 census as TAYLOR, but are actually BLACK, ch of Benjamin and Eliza M. Looking at the age of William Taylor in that census, he is actually too old to be the son of William and Margaret, as they were m in 1873. That means either Robert Black or William, who is not listed in 1870, ???, was the husband of Nettie G Sparks, and father of her two children, Katie and Willie.
