I have Black connections in New Monkland (Airdrie) around the dates you mention in your posting.My great-grandfather John Cleland Black was born in there in 1864.
His parents were John Black - a pawnbroker(28.8.1806 - 24.9.1866) and Ann Hutton (1839 - 23.11.1869.He had a brother James - could this be the father you mention?
Johns parents were James Black(b abt. 1786 and Margaret Cleland.James Black was a handloom weaaver.
James's parents were Jean Cherrie and John Black (a stonemason)
I have more information if you think we have a connection?
