BLACK, John. I am researching the family of John Black born about
1813 in South Carolina. He married Mary and had the following
children: George, James, Nancy Elizabeth (who later married Samuel
Gladney McMaster). The 1850 Madison County Census shows Thomas Black
and family, Amos Black and family, and Cyrus Black and family.
Perhaps these were brothers. They were born in S.C. moved to N.C. and
then came to Tennessee. I think they went to Arkansas from there
because that is where Nancy Elizabeth got married.

ELIZA BARBER was married to my grandfather, JAMES WILLIAM (BILL)

Ike and possibly a daughter named Molly LaRue. Any information will
James William LaRue was my grandfather. He was married 3 times. He was
married to my grandmother, Josephine Westbrook in Madison County. My dad was
born in 1877. I also found out that he was married to Eliza Barber and
Frances Stevens in your county. I believe that he had some of those children
by each wife, that's why I seperated the three. There is real confusion in my
family, because my mothers mother married one of the half brothers after her
husband was killed. My mother's mother was named Willet and she Married one
of these LaRue half brother's and I believe in the same county. Therefore, my
mother Susie Beatrice Willet had sons named LaRue and half brothers named
LaRue. I did not even put in a query for my grandmother (a Willet and a
LaRue) or my mother (a willet and a LaRue) yet.
