Hope you can help me discover who these BLACK's are that are mentioned in this 1891 letter!
I have a letter written Sep 13, 1891, by P. A. BLACK from Lyons, TX.P. A. BLACK was the wife of WILLIAM BLACK.In the letter she wrote, "Oh I want tell you about a wedding that is to take place before long the bride is 50 and the groom 65 years old he is our name sake old Squire BLACKI have never met him but he is a good old Scotsman and is right wealthy and stands high in his (?)C. LEE.My TOMMY says he knows we are kin for his boys look like the BLACKsat any rate they are nice good folks, mabe he is our uncleI don't know his given nameall the BLACKs that I have heard of in TX are good nice people2 other families besides that oneI wish i could find some of our BLACk kin folks out here don't youP.A. BLACK"
PIERCY A. JOHNSON & her husband, WILLIAM BLACK, came from Gadsden Co., FL to Lyons, TX.Before Gadsden Co., FL the BLACK's came from Cumberland Co., NC, and before Cumberland Co., NC they came from Jura, Scotland.
Like PEIRCY in 1891, "I wish could find some of our BLACK kin folks out here don't you"?LIZ
