I am trying to find any information on Real Black- b. 4/10/1876 d. 4/1/1942.
He married Alice Fleming. They probably lived somewhere around Kings Mountain, NC, but could have been across the line in SC.

  • Possible parents of Thomas are John C. and  Elizabeth.

    *: For persons interested in locating copy of "The Black Family of Carrabus County, N. C. and
        Abbeville, S. C. "  Info I have on this family came from an article I read in The Genealogical
        Helper, Sep & Dec 1955 issue, written by Jack Ladson, Jr. I just jotted names and dates down
        as my John Black's parents, (he was b. ?, d. 1825 Screven Co., Ga.) came from Ireland and the
        dates & names fit so well into my family. I have not attempted to find the book. Since Jack
        Ladson gave his address as Moultrie, good source to contact would be the Ladson
        Library at Vidalia, Georgia.  Another, Washington Memorial Library, Macon, and even N.C.
        Archives.  If Washington Memorial Library in Macon has the book they will graciously copy the
        index/pages for you. They have a very accomodating, efficient staff.    -Barbara Crites
