JOHN W. BLACK, teacher, Brandt; is a son of Adam and Julia Ann Black, and a grandson of Adam and Elizabeth Black; she was a native of Virginia but came with her parents to this county very early, her father having served in the Revolutionary war. Adam Black, the grandfather of our subject, was a native of North Carolina, and came to Bethel Township, at a very early date; he. in partnership with his father and brother, bought 160 acres of land of Thomas Cora, who had entered it some time previous; this they afterward divided, the father taking 60 acres, and the sons each 50 acres. They were carpenters, and did some work at millwrighting in connection with the improvement of their homes. Adam Black, the father of our subject, now owns the 50 acres formerly owned by his father. He was born on this place Jan. 23, 1828, and, with the exception of about three years, has made it his home. In 1849, Sept. 20, he was united in marriage with Julia Ann McEffee, who was born in Maryland July 4, 1831, and emigrated to Ohio in about 1839. Adam and Julia Ann Black are the parents of seven children - John Wesley, born Jan. 7, 1850; Albert, born Jan. 14, 1853; Emma E., born July 18, 1854; Amanda, born July 28, 1856; Adam, born Dec. 31, 1857; Clara, born March 24, 1860; and William, born July 18, 1869.
