It would certainly make since about Alfred Black being one of the siblings. Alfred was one of the most popular names of the Black family of Lincoln/Gaston County, NC. There was an Alfred Black living in Panola County in 1900 census living with his sister's family Susan Black Stovall. Your father's statements just confirm to me more that Alfred was one of the children. No doubt that Nancy Jane Black was the daughter of William Pinkney Black of my family. William is not my direct line but is of the Black family I descend from. He served in Co B 23rd NC and after the War in probably 1869 migrated to Panola County with the Alfred Sellers family. He can be found on census records there till 1900. Then cannot be found. He had a second wife of three years in the 1900 census an Annie Redford. I have good bit of info about Wm Pinkney Black's siblings and his ancestors, just didn't know what happened to him. Contact me through my email email@example.com and I can pass you info about the Black's of Gaston County, NC. Thanks for the lead on the other sibling names!!!
