John and Francis Black were present in Buncombe Cnty 1870 census w/ two children.
1880 Francis Black is widowed w/ 5 children, William Whitfield, Lily, Lureena, Margaret, and Sylvester, 3 yrs old.
We know children were orphaned shortly after 1880 census, based on info from my gmother, daughter of Margaret (Maggie).Children were parceled out (can't locate where they went.)
The next census available is 1900 and all are gone.
Any help on any of these siblings or parents would be great.
