Hey Dwayne, don't have much about James Black, but do know a bit about Martin & Catherine (Katie, my GGGrandmother).
Martin Rash Jr. b. 1842, d. 1902, buried at Turkey Creek Missionary Baptist Church, outside of Asheville NC. Served in the 65th NC (Confederate) for three years, then deserted and joined the 2nd NC (Union).
Hey and Katie had 9 children that we know of:
Alice Demaris James Arizona Charles Robert Azalee Zadock Carr
Just came from a family reunion with Charles' branch, and have spoken to some of Zadock's kin on-line. Where do you fit into this? Would love to hear your story, and I'll track down my as-yet uncomputerized information and see if we have anything else on the Blacks. Take care, Joel Rash, Flint, Micghigan
