What a great forum. My Father's family were from Hamilton Ohio. They owned and operated the Black and Clauson paper mill and machinery works. His Mother Louise Black had family there but we have lost touch. She moved her with her husband George hugh Hyland to California shortly before my father was born, July 28th, 1910. I don't have my great grandparents names and my Father passed away last Spring. It's just so sad that he didn't really care too much about genealogy, he loved his parents but there just wasn't much info about his ancestors. I was wondering if anyone here knows anything about a wealthy family named Black who lived in Hamilton Ohio at the turn of the century. I know that my Great Grandfather Black travelled to China with my Grandmother when she was a young woman.
Well, let me know if this is of any interest to anyone here and good luck with all of your searches. Big friendly hugs, Jacqui
