My x4 Great grandpa was Joseph Black, who supposedly came from Northern Ireland into PA and then into Kentucky. I haven't proved the PA or Northern Ireland connection, but have proven that my Joseph Black was in Campbell County, Kentucky by 1801.
Do you think my Joseph Black could be the son of Alexander Black Sr? I have hit a brick wall and can't seem to get any further on our family history. One side of the family tells that Joseph was married to Harriet Hepworth, but can't find anything on her. They also say he was born in Northern Ireland around 1776. Joseph Black's children were:
Elmore Black - married Rosannah Abercrombie Robert Black - married Sally Johnson and Elizabeth Smith Steve Black George Black Juliann Black - married Ephriam Martin Margaret Black - married William Mefford Joseph Black Jr.- married Sarah Sprague and Margaret Blackburn. Nancy Black - married Albert Bopie
All these children were born in Campbell County, Kentucky between 1804-1819.
