Re: Thomas James/Elizabeth Mace/Rachel Allen
Glad to hear from you!There seems to be a lot of confusion with the Blacks of Iredell and Mecklenburg Co's. NC.And the more I look for info the more confused I get!
I need to straighten out what I believe are two different William Black's.I have William Black b.abt 1740, d. 1 Oct 1794 near Richmond, VA and Rebecca's (Wallis); their son James b. abt 1782 in Mecklenburg Co., NC marrying Sophia Young 20 Mar 1805 in Cabarrus Co., NC. They had ch: James Leander, Keziah A., Joseph Young, William Smith, Wallace Allison, Miles Davidson.
But I also have a James Black, parents unk in my data, b. 11 Jul 1792 Lincoln Co., NC d.27 Oct 1824 in Lincoln Co., married to Susannah Allen b. 25 Feb 1785 , d. 13 Dec 1847 Lincoln Co., NC. She is dau. of Vincent and Elizabeth Allen.They married 11 Oct 1806 Lincoln Co., NC.
From other researchers I have info that says that William Black who married Rebecca Wallis had a father named William d. abt 1763 in Mecklenburg Co., NC, wife name unk.
Had ch:William b. ca 1740, d. 1 Oct 1794
possibly a Thomas d. bef 1792
So my question to you is how do you descend from James and Susannah?And which William do you believe is the father of James?
