| ||Notes for Elizabeth Black:|
................ +Margaret BLACK b: 1736 d: 1805 in Proctor-Arch farm, Kentucky m: Bef. 1756 in Ireland
Soon after 1782 Ft. Boonesborough was closed because of Indian troubles. Margaret waited at the fort for James to return. We assume she didn’t believe he was dead because his body hadn’t been identified. Their grown children left and moved to different locations. Elizabeth Margaret Black McGuire moved when the fort was closed to Howards Creek Sawmill, then to Fayette County, then to Clark County, Kentucky. She died in 1805 at the Proctor-Arch farm in Kentucky and was buried in her son, Archibald McGuire’s farm graveyard.
Her parents may have been Samuel Black b. 1700 in Scotland d. Aug 9, 1770 and Catherine Shaw there is no actual proof.
