TO ALL DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM BLACK AND SARAH STEVENS 



Since the publication of "Our Black Family in America" by 
my parents, Sarah H. and Chester A. Black in 1960, much research 
has been done in Ohio, North Carolina and elsewhere to find the 
Black and Stevens ancestry. 

Some efforts have been made to coordinate and share the 
research results, but as far as I know, the breakthrough has not 
been ma de . 

I would like to hear from relatives interested in joining a 
William Black Family Genealogical Organization and probably 
setting up an Internet Web Site. 



William Black and Sarah Stevens did have parents!!!! 
They need to be identified .

Dear Mrs. Black: 

We have been very busy and have delayed making a report to 
you as these services are not ce lucrative as some of our 
other work. We are aaklng no chartje for our services to 
date besides the two dollars enclosed in your letter. A 
town of Vermillion was platted December 25, 1818 in Clear 
Creek Township but the town was never developed and is now 
far:.", land. We find no John or Vifilliam Black owning any real 
estate in this Townshlj- and assuae that the reference is to 
Vermillion Township. Ashland County, Ohio was established 
In 1846 from part of Richland County and other counties. 
Clear Creek Township and Vernilllon Township are now in 
Ashland County, Ohio. 

V/e find no record in Richland County to real estate in 
Vermillion To*mBhlp to or from William or John Black, except 
only the following: 

Tn.e Southeast Quarter of Section 25, Verciillion Township, 
containing 160 acres, v/as conveyed to Vfilliaa Black by 
deed dated Auyjrt 26, 1S17 and recorded at Volume 25, 
Page 435. 

Said Quarter Section was conveyed by 'Villian Slack 
and Sarah Black, his wife, to Joseph Strlcklin by deed 
dated November 18, 1822 and recorded at the same 
Volume and Page . 

The east half of the Southeast Quarter of Section 35 in 
said Township was conveyed by Wllllai:: Black and Sarah 
Black, his wife, to Samuel Black by deed dated Kay 4, 
1835 and recorded at Volume 9, Page 4SC.

130 acres In the East Quarter of Section 35 In 




dee.d dated July 7, 1337 



The west half of the Sout hwest Quarter of Section 35 in 
said Township was conveyed by 'Jllliam Black, Jr. and 
Mary Black, his wife, to Wllliaa Coulter by deed dated 
August 10, 1837 and recorded at Volune 18, Page 451, 

V.'e find no legal proceedings or estates in said names prior 
to 1850. •^ 

The above conveyances do not make an intelligible story. It 
may be possible that we can find some additional records. If 
you wish us to make further examination, please rercit $5.00.

Introduction 

CT J JlTYi this volume we offer to the Black family and to the 
1/1/ world a record of the descendants of William Black and 
^ '^ Sarah Stevens. The William Morley Black family organ- 
ation, publisher of this record, was established in its present form 
in 1941 in Salt Lake City, Utah, with Chester A. Black as president, 
Homer Black as vice president, Amy J. Carroll as secretary and 
treasurer, and Sarah H. Black and Myrtle Redd as genealogists 
and historians. For several years Sarah H. Black has been histor- 
ian only. Many people have helped in numerous ways, and over 
the years hundreds of letters have been written and endless hours 
spent in research. 

Some members of our family have become great; of these, 
when known, we have tried to tell. Many have been heroes in the 
world wars, and to these we pay tribute. With this book we want 
to honor especially our distinguished ancestors, who have served 
their God and their fellowmen as physicians, preachers, mission- 
aries, patriarchs, bishops, presidents of Stakes, presidents of un- 
iversities, superintendents of schools, school teachers, lawyers, 
bankers, and as skilled workmen in every field. About some of 
them we know little or nothing because the records concerning 
them were not sent in. Some of those we love most served their 
country well, but of these there are so many we mention only 
one, as an example of those who paid the price of freedom with 
their lives. We mention him because he became famous in World 
War II, lost his life to the cause, and in addition because we have 
been given all the necessary information concerning him. 

There are, of course, mistakes. We have checked, rechecked, 
and retj^ed many pages, but even with perfect records, it would 
be easy to copy incorrectly. We hope the errors will be few. 

This record is accurate insofar as possible. We have records 
from old family Bibles, from wills, deeds, and from census and 
county records. Many complete family records have been sent in 
by members of the family and all these we have tried to copy 
accurately. 

We hope someone will trace our first American ancestor and 
go back to the old countries to gather the records of this family. 

XI 



This is a good family, and we are proud to belong to it. The fam- 
ily is of several different faiths, but we all believe in one God; and 
may He bless us and let us know and love the truth. 

We wish to express our thanks to each and every one who 
has so generously sent records, and we are truly sorry that all 
these have not come in. Perhaps someone will add to this book 
so that the records may be complete.

Explanation of Contents 

This book has been compiled by families, rather than is some- 
times done in books of this type, by breaking the families and 
listing each individual separately in his generation. We have 
begun by listing the parents, followed by each successive child 
whose children are also listed successively. Since we realize that 
this family is large and complex, and it is easy to become lost in 
its labrynthian detail, we have numbered each individual twice. 
In front of each name is a Roman Numeral, followed by an Arabic 
Numeral. The Roman numeral indicates the generation, the Arabic 
Numeral places the individual in successive order in his family. 

In order to break the book into convenient chapters, we have 
devoted a chapter to each family large enough to merit this treat- 
ment. However, in listing the first two generations, there are some 
families which are too small or about whom too little information 
is available for a complete chapter. These families have been 
listed with the parents in the first chapter. The descendants of 
William Morley Black are so numerous that most of his children 
have families large enough to merit individual chapters. The few 
exceptions have been listed in his autobiography. 

We realize that not every family is listed completely, but we 
have made every possible effort to obtain complete records. Where 
we were unable to obtain information, we could only list that part 
which we could obtain.

The First Two Generations 

The families in America by the name of Black are numerous. 
We have tried in this book to list all members of the family of 
William Black and his wife Sarah Stevens. Real proof of the origin 
of this family in America has as yet not been found. From letters 
and old Bibles and stories handed down from one generation to 
another we are led to believe the first member of the family in 
America was either John or William Black, and we are sure he 
fought in the Revolutionary War in North Carolina around King's 
Mountain. The names of William and John are so common we 
have been unable to find absolute proof of his identity. Until 
further proof comes to light we are offering this account and 
hope some day to find the beginning. 

The census of 1840 taken in Lawrence County, Illinois, lists 
this family. William gave his age as seventy and his place of birth 
as North Carolina, 

The Black family was well established in Vermillion, Rich- 
land County, Ohio, until 1837, when the elder son of the family 
lost his farm and decided to move to Illinois where land was to 
be had for the taking. Judging from the land deal, a copy of which 
is here reproduced, the rest of the family followed very soon. The 
sister, Rhoda, with her husband and family were already in St, 
Francisville, Lawrence County, by the time John reached there, 
and soon the whole family had taken farms and were settled close 
to what is now Bridgport, Lawrence County, Illinois. They were 
staunch Baptists, and when a church was erected the names of 
the Black family were all engraved on a plaque outside the door. 
So many of the family lived there the settlement was called 
Blacksburg; the name, however, was later changed to Bridgport. 

In Ohio William Black owned and operated on his own land 
the first grist mill on the Black Fork of the Vermillion River. 

In the 1850 census we find William Black and his wife Sarah 
Stevens Black had left Illinois and returned to Vermillion, Ohio, 
but by that time the county had been divided and Vermillion was 
now in Ashland County. By 1850 Sarah was dead, but William was 
living there with one of the younger sons. He gave his age as 80 , ' 
in 1850. By 1860 he too was gone. 



2 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

I WILLIAM BLACK, b. 1770 North Carolina, died before 1860 in Rich- 
land, Ashland, Ohio, married Sarah Stevens b. 1774 North Carolina, 
d. before 1850. 
Children: 

II 1. Mary Black, b. 1795 North Carolina, married Samuel Hunt. 
Children: 

ni 1. William Hunt, b. 1818. 
Ill 2. Sarah Hunt, b. 1819. 
Ill 3. John Hunt, b. 1822 twin. 
Ill 4. Thomas Hunt, b. 1822 twin. 
Ill 5. Reason Hunt, b. 1826. 
Ill 6. Baldwin Hunt, b. 1828. 

We can find nothing more concerning this Hunt family. This 
much is given in the Black family records. Mary may have married 
before they left North Carolina, as records do not indicate that 
she was with her family in either Ohio or Illinois. 

II 2. John Black, b. 24 March 1797, North Carolina, d. 15 Oct. 1839, 
Bridgport, 111.; married 19 April 1821 Mary Cline, b. 31 Jan. 1802 
Penn. daughter of Jonas Cline (Klynn) and Catherine Rose Tryntje 
Roosa See Index Listing Revolutionary War record of Jonas 
Cline.) 

John Black's son William (Morley)* has this to say about his 
father: 

"My father was an independent farmer owning 40 acres 
of rich farm land situated in the heart of a forest. He was 
methodical in all of his labor, inclined to be mechanical and 
gave close attention to his farm, which gave ample support for 
himself and his family. He also owned and operated a lathe 
and turned legs for tables and bedsteads and wooden bowls, 
and he was known for the excellence of his ax helves. He was 
anxious for all of his children to get all the education they 
could. Educational facilities were meager and primitive — it 
was two and one-half miles from our house to the little coun- 
try school house. During the winter, as a rule, we had three 
months of school in which we were taught reading, writing, 
arithmetic and spelling. I recall only two winters when I at- 
tended school. I had but one book, Webster's American Dis- 
pencer. During the two winters I learned it off by heart, then 
passed the book to the younger children. I think my sister 
Rachel's family still have it in their possession. 



* William was not christened William Morley but later adopted the name Morley, as 
related m his Autobiography. We have used parentheses for clarity. 



THE FIRST TWO GENERATIONS 3 

"When I was eleven years old our neighbor, a man whom 
we all respected, got into trouble and my father went his bond 
in the sum of $500.00. That was a lot of money in those days 
and when the time for the trial came the neighbor could not 
be found. It took our farm to pay the bond. Illinois, a new 
State, was widely advertised as a place where good homes 
were to be obtained more cheaply. Father and three of our 
neighbors moved into Lawrence County, Southern Illinois, 
and purchased homes near where Bridgport now stands. That 
late fall father's parents and his brothers came from Ohio and 
bought land near ours. It was a wide, level country, beau- 
tiful with groves of trees, with stretches of prairie, with cold 
springs, and streams of clear water abounding with fish. The 
drawback was an occasional swamp giving rise to malarial 
fever, and here after two years of hard labor building a new 
home, our first great sorrow came to us in the death of our 
dearly beloved father. His was among the first graves in the 
old cemetery near Bridgport."

William Black, son of William and Sarah Stevens, was only 
twelve years old at the time of the War of 1812. He and his brother 
John drove a team and wagon to take supplies to the men on the

Ohio, and with them he sold out and moved to Illinois, where his 
elder brother John was now living. He was a prominent man and 
raised his family in Bridgport.

although we have searched for records of him.) 

II 5. RHODA BLACK, b. abt. 1804 Maryland, died in St. Francisville, 
Lawrence, 111.; married John Potts, b. 8 April 1802 Fredrick, County,

THE FIRST TWO GENERATIONS 5 

II 6. Jonathan Stevens Black, b. 1806 (1840 Census lists Pennsylvania as 
as birthplace, both died before 1850, married Mary Ann Ryland, 
b. abt. 1810 daughter of William Ryland and Catherine. Family rec- 
ords say Jonathan Stevens Black, his wife, and a little girl all died 
at about the same time. The census of Vermillion, Ashland County, 
Ohio, for 1850, lists a child, Stevens Black, aged 4, as living with 
his grandparents, William Ryland and his wife, Catherine. In the 
1860 census the child was still with them, then aged 14.) 
Children: 

III 1. Daughter Black, b. 1844 Bridgport, Lawrence, 111. (family record) 
d. before 1850. 

Ill 2. Stevens Black, b. 1846 Bridgport, Lawrence, 111. 

II 7. Samuel Black, b. 1808 (census of 1860 lists Maryland as birthplace) ; 
married Harriet Bakehorn, b. 1812 Ohio. 
Children: 

III 1. Jonathan Black, b. 1839 Bridgport, Lawrence, 111. d. July 1863 

(Record of William M. Black) 
III 2. Martha Black, b. 1843 Bridgport, Lawrence, 111. 

II 8. Daniel Black, b. 1816 Vermillion, Richland, Ohio; married Elizabeth, 
b. 1817 Ohio. 
Children: 

III 1. William R. Black, b. 1841 Bridgport, Lawrence, 111. 
Ill 2. Mary E. Black, b. 1845, Vermillion, Ashland, Ohio. 
III. 3 William M. Black, b. 1851 Vermillion, Ashland, Ohio. 

William Black, the father of the family, apparently moved to 
Illinois and lived there for about four or five years. The eldest 
son John had died in 1839 and their son James "went across the 
river into Kentucky." The old people, with Jonathan Stevens 
Black, Samuel, and Daniel, must have longed for the old home, 
as they returned to Ohio. William Morley Black in his family 
record gave the death of Jonathan Stevens Black and his wife 
and their little girl, and the 1850 and 1860 census of Ashland con- 
firm this information. By 1850 James was in Kentucky, Jonathan 
S., John, and Grandma Sarah Stevens Black were dead; William 
the elder was living with his son Daniel in Ohio, then 80 years old. 
Samuel also lived in Ohio. WilUam died sometime between 1850 
and 1860 as he was not listed in the 1860 census, which showed 
no more children for Samuel or Daniel. 

We tried to find some descendents of Stevens Black or of 
Samuel or Daniel. John Wilson Black, who will be referred to 
later, made a trip to Ohio for us in the effort to locate some of 
these people. He sent us many addresses of Blacks he contacted, 
but none of them answered the letters and as there was already so 
much information we decided not to follow up these contacts. 
Perhaps some day we will be able to find them.

8 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

Carrie and her sister Mabel have been wonderfully helpful 
in the compiling of this book and we wish to express our gratitude 
to them. Mabel was very interested, and we are sorry she passed 
away before the book was finished, as she was anxious to see it. 
After Mabel's husband died, she lived for some time with her 
sister Carrie, then she went to Phoenix where her two sons were 
living, but she longed for her "dear Illinois." She died in Phoenix 
but was taken back to Bridgport, the home of her family on both 
sides for at least two generations, for burial beside her husband. 

Children:

Martin Luther Black, Son of John 

III 2. MARTIN LUTHER BLACK, b. 7 Jan. 1824 Vermillion, Richland, 

Ohio, d. 2 80ct. 1894; married 1st 2 Feb. 1854 Margaret A. Barekman, 
b. 7 July 1831 111. 

Being the eldest son in the family, the responsibility of man- 
aging the farm and providing for his mother and the younger 
children rested upon Martin Luther. For fifteen years he cared for 
the family. Shortly after the death of the father, John Black, 
Martin's younger sister and pet, Catherine, was born. 

Margaret A. Barekman (King) was a widow with one son, 
George King. After their marriage Martin and she decided to go 
to California to seek gold as so many of their friends had done. 
They left the family in Lawrence County and, with all they had, 
started west. In St. Louis they met some of their friends returning 
from California and were told there was no more gold to be found. 
Martin started back home with his family but when they got to 
Wayne County, Illinois, they found good land and decided to stay 
there. They homesteaded near Barnhill, Wayne County, and there 
raised a family. Margaret died soon after the birth of their third 
son. Five years later Martin remarried and all that branch of the 
family have been raised near Barnhill or Fairfield, Wayne County, 
Illinois.

near Barnhill, 111., d. 3 Aug. 1949, daughter of Silas Wilson and Ma-

Before World War II I attended the Moody Bible Insti-

and one-half years in the service (two years in Italy with the 
Air Force), I returned to school at the Eastern Baptist Theo- 
logical Seminary in Philadelphia, and again majored in music 
and the seminary Sacred Music Department. I graduated in 
1950 with my B.S.M. (Bachelor of Sacred Music) degree, fol- 
lowing which I continued additional studies on the college and 
seminary level at Eastern. In 1952 I became director of music 
and Christian education in the Kopperston Community 
Church, Kopperston, West Virginia. In Sept. 1953 I moved to 
Dunbar (near Charleston), West Virginia, where I am now 
beginning my fifth year as director of music and Christian 
education with the First Baptist Church (a member of the 
American Baptist Convention). I am a full time director, di- 
recting a graded choir and music program plus a full eluca- 
tion program. Our Church has 700 members. Signed, Andrew

12 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

In assembling this record Clarence helped us more than any 
other individual. He was a very hard-working farmer, but at the 
times we have sent him word that we could get no response to 
letters he left his work and drove many miles to contact people 
and obtain records or have them sent to us. We wanted very much 
to meet him, but he passed away before we could do so. We all 
owe a debt of gratitude to Clarence for his help, and we sincerely 
hope that in the happy place where he now resides he will know 
that the book is finished and of our appreciation. He died very 
suddenly.

Autobiography of William Morley Black 

William Morley Black, b. 11 Feb. 1826, Vermillion, Richland, Ohio 

d. 21 June 1915 

The following autobiography was dictated to his daughter 
Eva by William (Morley) Black during his last illness. Day after 
day Eva sat beside him and wrote in long-hand as he told his 
story to her. Later it was rewritten by John R. Young, a son-in- 
law. The compiler has done a great deal of research and some 
facts have been discovered which are being added, accompanied 
by the proof. 

After the death of my father it became necessary for me 
to hire out to help make a living for the family although I 
was thirteen years old. For two summers I worked at the 
brick yard, getting thirty-seven and one-half cents a day. 
Winters I hired to do farm work, getting five dollars a month. 
When seventeen years of age mother consented to let me go 
to Fulton County, Illinois, where her parents and her brothers 
and sisters were living. It was many miles from Lawrence 
County to Fulton and it took me some time to get there, walk- 
ing most of the way. My grandparents were glad to see me 
and to hear of their daughter but they were having a hard 
time so I got work on a farm, getting eight dollars a month, 
which was considered good wages. The second summer I 
made an agreement with Mr. Brockman, a contractor and 
builder. He was to pay me six dollars a month and teach me 
the trade of masonry. I worked with him two summers, then 
he died, so that ended that venture. 

When in 1845 the little towai of Cuba was started. I 
secured a town lot and began to gather material to build me 
a house. At that time I had made the acquaintance of a family 
by the name of Banks. Their daughter, Margaret Ruth, and I 
fell in love. I was temperate, industrious, and saving, and 
during the summer erected mainly by my own labor a tidy, 
two-roomed house. On the 5th of February 1847 Margaret 
Ruth and I were married. 

I took quite an interest in politics, and in 1848. I ran for 
sheriff on the Democratic ticket and was elected. In the win- 
ter of 1848-49, the news of the discovery of gold in California 
created quite a fever in our town, and I caught the fever. In 
the spring of 1849 a joint stock company was formed to go to 
the gold field. I resigned the sheriff's office and paid one 
hundred dollars into the company, which entitled me to a 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 17 

passage across the plains to California. 

On the first of April, 1849, twelve citizens of the town of 
Cuba met together and formed a joint stock company, each 
member paying one hundred dollars into the treasury to be 
used in purchasing teams and outfits for a journey of two 
thousand miles through an unsettled Indian territory. We 
formed as it were a community compact for our defense and 
protection. The agreement bound us together until we should 
reach the gold fields. Anyone could withdraw from the com- 
pany, but in so doing they forfeited the capital they had in- 
vested in it. William Maxwell was elected captain. I was 
elected as a teamster. On the 3rd of April, with light hearts 
and high ambitions we kissed our wives, children and parents 
goodbye and took the trail for the Eldorado of the West. 

One hundred miles from Cuba brought us to Nauvoo on 
Saturday, and we rested the Sabbath. I strolled the streets 
of the city. Many of the houses were vacant. Those that were 
inhabited were occupied by a people whose language was 
strange to me. I was told that the builders of the city were a 
lawless set who for their crimes had been driven out and their 
beautiful substantial homes had become a prey almost without 
price to a company of French Icarians who purchased from 
the mob at low prices the homes of the exiled Mormons. Here 
we crossed the Mississippi River and followed westward on 
the roads made three years previously by the fleeing fugitives 
from Nauvoo. We crossed the Missouri River at Omaha and 
rested a few days until we were joined by other gold seekers; 
we numbered 75 men and 30 wagons. William Maxwell was 
elected as Captain over the new comers to our group. 

The journey to Salt Lake Valley was a prosperous one. 
The most lively incidents were the days when for sport we 
hunted buffalo, thousands of them were shot down for the 
mere fun of the thing. No one seemed to consider that they 
were the property of the Red Men, and that they by genera- 
tions of inheritance claimed them as we claim our marked and 
branded cattle. Sad indeed was it for the Sioux nation when 
the white men made a thoroughfare through their well 
stocked hunting grounds. 

On the 24th of July we entered the Salt Lake Valley, 
emerging from Emigration canyon. We were all on tiptoe and 
anxious to see the kind of civilization the Mormons would 
exhibit to us. Descending from the bench lands we soon en- 



18 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

countered well cultivated fields that extended westward in 
evidently small compact holdings to the very doors of their 
homes. Every field was irrigated by a newly made irrigation 
canal, and the scarcity of weeds gave evidence of careful cul- 
ture. Passing through their city I saw the marking of several 
blacksmith shops, but not a sign of a saloon, or even barber 
pole, tavern or hotel could I see. But in the northern and 
thickest settled part of the town we passed a large brush bow- 
ery constructed evidently as a screen from the sun and used 
for the public gatherings. And today it looked as if the entire 
community, both old and young, male and female, were as- 
sembled there. At first I thought we had lost our reckoning 
and this was the Sabbath day, but this could not be, as the 
Mormons were an un-Christian, lawless set who doubtless 
paid no heed to the Sabbath. Passing the city we camped on 
open ground, on the bank of a small stream called the Jordan. 
Across the street opposite us stood a low two-roomed house. 
The laughter of the children announced to us that the in- 
mates of the house had come. I met the father whom the fam- 
ily called Uncle Buck Smithson. I asked if myself and 
companions could get supper with them. He hesitated and 
finally said: "You are welcome, we would be glad to have you 
come, but I am afraid that our simple supper of milk, meat 
and pigweed greens would seem very poor to you. We have 
no bread because the flour we brought a year ago has given 
out. We have not had bread for three weeks, and have no 
hopes of any until our harvest." 

I gave him a pan of flour and in return partook of as 
relishable a meal as I ever have eaten. The dirt floor was 
cleanly sw^ept; in fact everything, though crude and primitive, 
was neat and tidy. When seated at the table Uncle Buck said 
he wanted them to be quiet, and then he gave thanks for the 
ample supply of food and asked the Father to bless it to our 
use. This was the first time in my life that I had heard a 
blessing asked on our daily food, and this prayer fell from 
the lips of an uncultured Mormon. 

Toward evening I met another Mormon, a Mr. Wilham 
Wordsworth. He was a man of pleasing address, evidently 
well educated. He explained to me the nature of the gathering 
in the bowery. Two years ago today the pioneer company of 
the Mormon people, the fugitives from Nauvoo, entered this 
uninhabited and almost unknown valley, and their thankful- 
ness was enhanced by the hope that they were beyond the 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 19 

reach and power of their old enemies who had cruelly mobbed 
and persecuted them for the last 15 years. 

Their suffering and the martyrdom of the Prophet was all 
news to me and I wished to know the nature of all their suf- 
fering. To my surprise Mr. Wordsworth invited us to attend 
their church services on the morrow. I accepted the invitation 
and he promised to call for me. Sunday, July 25, 1849, is a 
day ever to be remembered by me. Mr. Wordsworth called 
early and after chatting ten or fifteen minutes with members 
of the company, and again extending an invitation to us all 
to attend their church, he and I walked together to the bow- 
ery. We secured seats near the front of the congregation. On 
the west was a raised platform of lumber on which were 
seated some twenty of their leading elders, including Presi- 
dent Brigham Young. Under the shade of the bowery, seated 
on neatly made slab benches were the choir and congregation. 

Services opened with singing and prayer, and the sacra- 
ment (bread and water) of the Lord's supper was blessed and 
passed to all the people. Then a man of noble, princely bear- 
ing addressed the saints. As he arose Mr. Wordsworth said: 
"That is Apostle John Taylor, one of the two men who were 
with our Prophet and Patriarch when they were martyred in 
Carthage jail." The word "Apostle" thrilled me, and the pow- 
erful sermon and testimony that followed filled my soul with 
a joy and satisfaction that I never felt before, and I said to 
Mr. Wordsworth, "If that is Mormonism, then I am a Mormon. 
How can I become a member of your Church?" He answered, 
"By baptism." I said, "I am ready for the ordinance." He re- 
plied, "Do not be in a hurry. Stay here and get acquainted 
with the people. Study more fully the principles of the Gospel, 
then if you wish to cast your lot with us, it will be a pleasure 
to me to baptize you." 

That night I slept but httle. I was too happy to sleep. 
A revelation had come to me, and its light filled my soul. My 
desire and ambition for gold was swept away. I had found 
the 'Pearl of Great Price' and I resolved to purchase it, let it 
cost what it would. 

After a few days rest the company pushed on for Cali- 
fornia, but another man drove my team. I gave them my all 
and in exchange received baptism at the hands of Levi Jake- 
man. I had lost the world and became a Mormon. He that put- 
teth his hand to the plow and turneth back is not worthy of 
me." The parting with Captain Maxwell and company as they 



20 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

continued their journey was a little painful. Their warm, 
cheery goodbyes touched me in a tender place. As neighbors 
and companions for 1400 miles on the plains they had be- 
come dear to me, and the parting turned my thoughts back 
to home and loved ones, and a shade of homesickness rested 
upon me. I stood alone with strangers, but Uncle Buck Smith- 
son saved the situation and strengthened my young faith with 
brotherly sympathy, inviting me to make my home with them, 
and he contrived to set me to work, which is a sure antidote 
for the blues. My first week's work in Utah was running an 
Armstrong mowing machine (sythe) for Uncle Buck, cutting 
wire grass on the Jordan bottoms. At the end of the week I 
found employment as a stone mason in helping to lay the 
foundation of the Council House, the first public building 
erected in Salt Lake City. Daniel H. Wells was the superin- 
tendent. He was kind and sociable and soon knew my history, 
and all his life he manifested an interest in me. When the 
Council House was ready for the carpenters, the masons were 
started on the tithing building, an adobe structure erected 
where the Hotel Utah now stands. While laboring on its walls 
I became well acquainted with President Brigham Young, as 
he visited us almost daily, carefully noting the quality of our 
work. By nature he was an architect and builder. During the 
summer I learned that Bishop Lorenzo D. Young was going 
back to the States on Church business. 1 thought it was a 
good chance for me to return for my family, and I also felt 
anxious to carry the glad tidings of the Gospel to my rela- 
tives, but I felt impressed to ask President Young's counsel, 
and did so. He listened attentively to my expressions for 
a few moments; he was silent as if absorbed in thought, 
then speaking very slowly and quietly he said: "I think you 
had better stay here until you get better acquainted with us 
and the principles of the Gospel; possibly you may not like 
us, and should you return now your friends may reject the 
Gospel and you being young in the faith might by their in- 
fluence be weaned from it. I would advise you to stay longer." 

That settled it with me. So far all that I had met was in 
harmony with my feelings and judgment. But a little test 
was coming. We had finished the Tithing Building, and for 
want of better work I went to hauling wood. A Brother Wool- 
sey let me have a yoke of oxen and a wagon and boarded me, 
giving me half the wood that I hauled. It took three days to 
get a load. Each week I earned a load of wood for which I 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 21 

generally got $8.00, making $1.25 a day, and that was con- 
sidered good wages. One day President Wells told me that I 
had been selected as one of a party to go to Sanpete Valley 
and to aid in making a settlement. I did not wish to go^ as I 
had been told that it was a cold frosty place, too high in alti- 
tude for agricultural purposes, and I felt that my condition 
would not be bettered. Again I could not see just what right 
the President had to call me. I understood and expected them 
to guide me in spiritual matters, but this was of a temporal 
nature and beyond their jurisdiction. These were my thoughts 
and this pioneer call was the first trial to my faith. I am 
pleased to say the pause was only for a moment. On reflection 
God's dealing with Noah, Abraham, Moses, Lehi, and Nephi 
was strong evidence that reasonings and traditions were in- 
correct. Was not God the author of the world as well as the 
Gospel? If he builded the earth, why not govern it? If it 
requires union of spirit and matter to bring exaltation of men, 
then it must be that the priesthood has a right to direct in 
material or temporal things as well as in spiritual things. 

The next time I met Brother Wells I told him I was 
willing to go to Sanpete or anywhere else. I want my descend- 
ents who may read this sketch to bear in mind that I was a 
new disciple and my mind was still steeped in the ideas and 
thoughts of sectarianism, and obedience to the requirements 
of the priesthood was a new doctrine to me. But the call set 
me to thinking and studying, and led to an increase in knowl- 
edge. Today I cannot recall the exact date of my starting to 
Sanpete, but some time in February 1850, in company with 
Ephraim Hanks, William Potter and four others the start was 
made. There were no settlements south of Salt Lake City until 
we reached Provo, where the settlers were living in a fort. 
Our progress was slow on account of muddy roads from the 
melting of the snow and frequent storms that came at that 
season of the year. At the crossing of the Spanish Fork Creek 
as we were moving in a narrow road cut through heavy wil- 
lows a troop of Indians appeared on the opposite bluff and 
opened fire on us. I was driving the lead team and I am free 
to confess that I halted as soon as I could. Ephraim Hanks, 
the leading spirit of the company, stepped fearlessly to the 
front, and in Spanish held a parley with the red men who 
were under the leadership of Josephine, a reputed half-broth- 
er of Walker, the king of the mountain Utes. The Indians 
refused to let us advance unless we would pay tribute. We 



22 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

gave them one sack of flour and three sacks of corn meal as 
a peace offering, which was in harmony with President 
Young, who said it was cheaper to feed them than it was to 
fight them. It was by President Young's wisdom and foresight 
that Hanks was along. He was by nature an athlete of won- 
derful power, he loved excitement and danger, qualities that 
gave him influence with the Indians on this occasion. They 
had the advantage of us and had they continued the onslaught 
we could not have escaped the whistling of the bullets, which 
was new music to me, and I was glad when the music ceased 
and we received no further harm than a scare and the loss of 
four sacks of possessions. 

The trip was a hard one, mud and bottomless roads in 
the valleys and over the divide at the head of Salt Creek the 
snow was from two to four feet deep for several miles. We 
could move but two wagons at a time. I have often thought 
how wise it is that we cannot see the end from the beginning, 
for often the difficulties would be greater than our faith and 
we would fail to make the progress that we do. After two 
weeks of hard struggling we reached Manti on Sunday and 
received the heartiest of welcomes. Old and young turned out 
to greet us and in a short time all of our little company were 
made to feel at home with old acquaintances. I alone was a 
stranger without kin or acquaintance, but a warm welcome 
awaited me. Father Morley, who presided at Manti, came 
and asked if I had friends to stop with. I told him I was an 
entire stranger. "Well, then, come and stop with me and be 
my boy." I went. For two years my home was with Father 
Morley, and I learned to love him as my own father. From 
him I adopted the middle name of Morley. No bargain was 
ever made; I never asked for wages and never received any. 
I worked at whatever was most needed. As harvest ap- 
proached we saw the need of a grist mill, as there was none 
within a hundred miles of us. Phineas W. Cook and I under- 
took to build one. We went to the canyon, cut and hewed the 
timber, then the Ward turned out and hauled it to the mill 
site at the mouth of the canyon, one mile above the fort. Then 
with a broad-ax and whip-saw we prepared and erected the 
frame of the mill. In the meantime Charles Shumway and 
John D. Chase had built a saunnill just below us. From them 
we got lumber to finish our mill, and President Young came 
to our assistance by furnishing a pair of Utah home made 
burrs. With this help by Christmas our little mill was running. 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 23 

which proved a great blessing to the infant settlements of 
Sanpete. 

All this time I had made my home at Father Morley's. 
From him I learned that Adam and Eve were married before 
Adam's fall; hence marriage is for enternity as well as time, 
and a union until death do you part is of human origin. Then 
he pointed to Abraham and Jacob who founded the house of 
Israel. Then he cited the revelation given to the Prophet 
Joseph Smith which says, "I reveal unto you a new and ever- 
lasting covenant, and if ye abide not that covenant then are 
ye damned, for all who will have a blessing at my hand shall 
abide the law that was appointed for that blessing." 

To my understanding at that time that meant plural mar- 
riage. I acceped it. I met a young lady of good family that 
pleased me and I pleased her. I told her of my wife and two 
children and of my desires to go and bring them to Utah. With 
this understanding and information she was willing to marr>^ 
me, and in February 1851, I married Amy Jane Washburn, 
Patriarch Isaac Morley performing the ceremony. 

When the work of building the grist mill was accomp- 
lished and no work of a pressing nature presented itself the 
anxiety of going for my family began to press upon my mind. 
To bring that about I arranged with Abner Larry to go back 
to Green River and run a ferry during high water, then I 
would find some way to continue on to the states. We estab- 
lished the ferry, but the high water didn't come, and that 
enterprise failed so I returned to Manti, working at haying 
and harvesting until October. I attended the October confer- 
ence in Salt Lake City, and on the 7th started east in a com- 
pany with Apostle Orson Hyde, Almon Babbitt and others 
numbering twenty-five men and seven teams. J. M. Grant 
was captain. I earned my passage by driving team and doing 
guard duty for a blind man, Leonard. One fearful stormy 
night, we had camped near an encampment of Sioux Indians. 
In the early morning, while the blizzard was raging our horses 
were stampeded and scattered. All hands turned out and 
rounded them up, but when morning light came Orson Hyde's 
mules were gone and were never recovered. We made the 
trip in forty days, reaching the Missouri river on the evening 
of November 15. Mush ice was running in the river, making 
it dangerous crossing, but Captain Grant with his usual en- 
ergy rushed us across. By the time the last wagon was over 
it was dark, so we camped. In the morning the river was 



24 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

frozen over and the boat was locked up. Severe storm followed 
and I had five hundred miles to travel by team, facing the 
storm and bitter cold of a severe winter. On the 18th of 
December I stopped at a hotel, putting up my team at a livery 
stable. After supper I went to the livery and gave my horses 
a feed of oats. The barn was built with an alley running from 
the front door to the rear, with stalls and good manger, and 
feed boxes on each side of the alley. At the rear end of the 
alley was a well on a level with the barn floor. When not in 
use the lid closed on the well. This evening it had been for- 
gotten and left open. I knew nothing of the well, and wishing 
to wait until the horses had eaten their grain, to keep warm 
I walked back and forward in the alley. In one of the beats 
in the dark I walked into the well, falling on the farther edge 
on my left side. The fall fractured three of my ribs, causing 
me much suffering. I was so anxious to get home that I con- 
tinued my journey though every jolt of the wagon gave me 
pain. 

On the 20th of December I reached South Canton, and to 
my joy I found my wife Margaret and the children, Morton 
and Martha well. She received me as one from the dead, 
though I had written to her, yet her friends had prophesied 
that I would never return. I will be brief in relating the out- 
come of my return. I was full of love and zeal for Mormonism, 
and my wife's parents were full of bitterness toward Mormon- 
ism. For a while, on account of the hurt I had received and 
the consequent weakness of my body, I said nothing to my 
parents-in-law about my having become a Mormon, but as 
soon as I could work without suffering pain I felt it my duty 
to tell them. And one evening, in answer to a question of 
Mother Banks, I told them I had been baptized into the Mor- 
mon Church. My mother-in-law was wild with rage and 
abused me without stint. I was prepared for the outburst and 
calmly and kindly made explanations and tried to turn away 
her wrath with mild answers. Father Banks refused to talk 
further than to give me to understand that as a Mormon I 
was not welcome beneath his roof. Then they retired without 
bidding us goodnight. 

There was no sleep for myself or Margaret that night. 
It was one of the sorrows of my life; it was not a trial, my faith 
was not shaken. I had received light and I knew my duty and 
was resolved to do it. As daylight approached, I said: "You 
are my wife, and I love you, but I love God better. I am going 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 25 

to harness my horses and leave your father's roof. If you 
want to go with me, have your things ready. Otherwise, I 
shall take Morton and leave you Martha, and bid you good- 
bye." At daylight I drew up to the door. Her bedding was tied 
up and everything packed ready. I lifted her and the children 
into the wagon, wrapped them in quilts, for it was storming 
furiously. By her suggestion I drove past William Biers, who 
had married one of her school mates. They lived two miles 
away. They were surprised and amazed, but received us 
kindly. We stayed the day, thankful for the hospitality, for 
it was one of the worst blizzards that I have ever seen. I 
shall never forget the day and the incidents. From that time 
on Margaret's trust in me was a great comfort, but I resolved 
to heed President Young's counsel, "Be a good boy, and come 
back as soon as you can." 

I had learned that the wheat crop last year in Illinois 
was so great that much of it was still unthrashed, and early 
winter had stopped the machines. I rented a machine, collect- 
ed a working crew, and taking my family went to what was 
called North Prairie and found a home for wife and children 
while I spent the balance of the winter threshing. In the 
spring of 1852 I ran down to Bridgport in Southern lUinois 
to see my mother, brothers and sisters. I was pained and sur- 
prised that they could not see the restored Gospel as I saw 
it. However I had the joy of seeing my brother Benjamin and 
my sister Rachel open their hearts to the gospel message, and 
my dear aged mother was very friendly. 

Returning I called upon a Mr. John Brush who had writ- 
ten to me he had a contract to turnpike and grade seven miles 
of road. He wanted to go to California, hence he wanted me to 
help him build the road, then he would cross the plains with 
me. He felt sure we could clear $4000 in the summer's work 
and offered to divide equally with me, but I declined. On 
reaching home at North Prairie I found a letter from the 
blind man, Leonard, waiting me. He wished me to come to 
Burlington, Iowa. He had purchased a large stock of goods 
and wished me to buy the cattle and wagons needed to freight 
the goods to Utah. I cheerfully agreed to aid him as it provid- 
ed a way and means for me to emigrate my family to the val- 
leys. I purchased twenty-one yoke of oxen and seven wagons 
and loaded them with Mr. Leonard's goods, and about the 
first of April started for Zion. It was near the last of May 
when I reached Omaha, on the Missouri river. Here we 



26 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

connected with the 18th company, the last Mormon train of 
the season, James C. Snow captain. As he was not quite ready 
it was thought best for me, with twenty teams that were 
ready, to move out to the Elkhorn, and here wait for the main 
company. We camped and waited until our patience was worn 
out. Leonard and all in camp urged me to go on. Under these 
conditions I consented to lead them, and away we went. Our 
company being small and mostly men we were quick in 
moving and easily out-traveled the large emigrant trains. We 
soon passed two of them. At Hush Hollow we overtook Cap- 
tain Wimmer with his train. Here also we were overtaken by 
Apostles E. T. Benson and J. M. Grant, emigration agents. 
President Benson censured me sharply for running away, as 
he called it. President Grant eased the chastisement by wish- 
ing they had more men like Brother Black. 

In the morning a council was held, and it was deemed 
wise to divide Captain Wimmer's company, to be handled to 
advantage, so they added 20 wagons to mine, giving me forty 
wagons and told us to go. We prospered. On the 2nd of October 
we landed in Salt Lake City. I had worked hard for Brother 
Leonard and conducted his business successfully and looked 
for some remuneration, but he felt that he had done me a 
great favor in bringing my family. I threatened to sue him for 
my wages. He appealed to President Young, and I agreed to 
abide by President Young's decision. President Grant volun- 
tarily appeared in my behalf and insisted that I should have 
at least three hundred dollars, but President Young said 
quietly to me: "You are young and strong and can live without 
the $300, but if Brother Leonard is required to pay that 
amount it will kill him dead, for he worships his gold. He is 
rich, and we need his help in sending some missionaries to 
China. If you forgive without recompense his heart will be 
warm and he will give liberally to the mission, and the Lord 
will bless you." 

I saw the wisdom of this counsel and accepted it. In 
those days we were necessitated to haul with ox teams our 
tithing grain from remote parts of the territory, and we aimed 
to do that freighting so as to be at the general conference. 
Fortunately I met several teams from Sanpete, and as the 
trouble with Brother Leonard compelled me to stay a few 
days I got Amasa Marion to take Margaret and the children 
to Manti with him. 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 27 

Here it is proper to say that Margaret had been baptized. 
She also knew that I had married Amy Jane and was prepared 
to meet the new conditions my actions had brought to us. She 
accepted cheerfully her share of increased responsibilities 
that plural marriage brings to all who enter into it. I desire to 
pay tribute to Margaret. All the rest of her life she was a real 
mother and helpmate in my large family. 

After conference, when the Leonard trouble was settled, 
Brother Beal, who was rich enough to own a horse team, 
gave me a seat in his carriage. Without a cent in my pocket I 
reached Manti, where father Washburn and family and 
friends gave me a hearty welcome, and Amy Jane placed in 
my arms little Tamer, the first fruits of my conversion to the 
Gospel. Father Washburn, wishing to confine himself to his 
trade of tanning and shoemaking, offered to take me in as a 
partner, I to look after the farm and other labors that came to 
us. I accepted the offer, and after resting two days I took an 
ox team and went to logging for a home. I had a wagon bed 
and a dugout in the side of the hill near where the Temple 
now stands. Margaret and Amy Jane lived together cheerfully 
and our lives were happy and contented. 

July 19, 1853, the Walker War commenced, and on 
October fourth, John E. Warner and William Mills were killed 
near our grist mill while brother Mills was on duty as 
watchman or day guard. That morning brother Mills, needing 
firewood, took his team with him, and it is supposed that 
brother Warner filled the hopper with wheat, started the mill, 
then went a short distance around a point to a grove of timber 
to help load the wood when the Indians surprised and killed 
them. The wants of the people required the running of the 
mill and no one else understood the business. Martin Wood 
and myself were called to run it night and day until the people 
were supplied with flour. Two men were put on guard in the 
day time and twelve at night. This continued until the first of 
November when grinding ceased and we quit guarding en- 
tirely to rest a few days, then we intended to pull the mill 
down and move it into town, but the Indians were evidently 
watching us, for on the sixth of November the mill was 
burned and everything pertaining to it was lost. 

At that time Hamilton and Baxter were building a grist 
mill at Nephi. I moved Amy Jane to Nephi and worked for 
them during the winter. In the spring of 1854 I rented their 
mill for five years. I brought Margaret from Manti and we 



28 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

had the family together again. All my life when conditions 
would permit I kept my families together. In union there is 
strength in families as well as nations. 

On 26 October 1859 I married Annie Marie Hansen. In 
the spring of 1860 my lease was up on the Nephi mill. I 
formed a partnership with Bernard Snow and I moved to 
Ephraim in San Pete Valley and helped Mr. Snow build a 
saw mill and we also built a large flour mill. In all these 
labors I was blessed. I had a good home and a good farm at 
this time; the valuation of taxable property was six thousand 
dollars. I was happy and contented. 

In the spring of 1865 my aged mother with my brother, 
Benjamin, his wife, Mary Ann, and my youngest sister 
Catherine and her husband, William F. Hite, came by team 
and covered wagon all the way from Bridgport, Lawrence, 
Illinois, our old home, to visit with me and my sister Rachel 
Van Vleet who with her husband lived at Beaver. My sister, 
Catherine had three fine boys, Benjamin and his wife had four 
little girls. 

At the spring conference in 1865 some families were called 
to go to Circle Valley and start a settlement. My name headed 
the list with a special charge to build a grist mill. Circle 
Valley was looked upon as a favored spot, and a rapid influx 
of settlers followed the call. A county was organized and a 
central city laid out. Edward Fulton was appointed District 
Judge and I was elected county prosecuting attorney. I hated 
leaving so soon after my mother and brother and sister had 
arrived but it was thought advisable for them to stay in Fort 
Ephraim where they could get work until the next spring 
when they would join us. My sister Rachel and her husband, 
Charles Van Vleet, moved to Circle Valley and we had hopes 
of our family being close again. Then came the great tragedy 
of the Black Hawk War with its suffering and sorrow. On the 
17th of October 1865 seven men from Fort Ephraim went up 
the canyon to get loads of wood when they were ambushed 
by Indians. My brother Benjamin was among the first killed 
at the onslaught, William Hite ran down the canyon and 
was within sight of the Fort when he was killed out on the 
Wire Grass Flat. Four men were killed close to where my 
brother lay, the others along the canyon and close to the 
fort. 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 29 

The following is a quote from Indian Depradations by Gott- 
fredson, page 173: 

"On Saturday, October 18th, a small body of men from Manti 
and Ephraim went up the canyon after the bodies of those 
who had been killed by Indians the previous day. They 
brought the body of Benjamin Black down to where Soren 
Jesperson lay. The rescuing party placed the bodies of the 
' two men on a two wheeled logging cart. They went all the 
way down the canyon pulling the cart by hand. When they 
got to Wire Grass Flat they picked up the body of William 
Hite and brought them into town." 

Continuing William Black's autobiography: 

The same day these seven men were killed a family by 
the name of Kuhre was killed out in the fields. They had a 
little boy two years old who was not harmed. He ran to his 
mother's dead body and was seen by some of the town men. 
A few years ago this child, now an old man, erected a monu- 
ment in Ephraim to those who were killed by Indians that 
day, in memory of his parents. The names of Benjamin Black 
and William F. Hite are both on this monument. 

During this time the settlers of Circle Valley were in a 
state of seige. I was unable to go to my mother and my sisters 
in our mutual grief. We had raised a crop of wheat but were 
unable to get it to Manti to have it ground into flour so we 
boiled the wheat or ground it in coffee mills. All labor was 
paralyzed. Every able-bodied man was enrolled and had to 
take his turn in looking after our stock or in guarding the 
town. 

In the early spring of 1866 word came to me that my 
mother and my sister and sister-in-law were determined to go 
back to their home in Illinois. I managed to get to Fort 
Ephraim to try to dissuade them but they were discouraged 
and unable to make the adjustment after their terrible tragedy 
so I did what I could to help them. My sister Rachel and her 
husband were there to see them off. Arrangements were 
made for them to travel with a company going back East. 
We saw them leave with deep sorrow in our hearts. We had 
tried to give them the gift of the Gospel but none of them 
wanted it; they felt bitter about what had happened to them. 



30 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

My sister Catherine had come with three fine boys. One of 
them lay in the little cemetery, dead of scarlet fever, two of 
Mary Ann's Uttle girls had died of the same thing, both hus- 
bands lay dead, killed by cruel Indians. Mary Ann, my broth- 
er's widow, was expecting another baby soon but still they 
would not stay. What a day of sorrow that was! To bid them 
good-bye, never to see them again in this life, and knowing as 
I did the rigors of the long trip back home. Mail service was 
slow; not for many months did we learn that when they got 
to Fort Washikee in Wyoming Mary Ann was not able to go 
farther. She insisted mother and Catherine go on with the 
company without her. Her baby was born there but lived 
but a few weeks. She worked to support herself and girls 
for some time, then married a soldier named Huftile. 

Mother and Catherine got as far as Council Bluffs. There 
they sold their team and wagon and went by boat down the 
river to St. Louis, where one of our cousins met them and 
took them home. Mother lived for years, always a true Bap- 
tist. She was buried beside my father in the old grave yard 
in Bridgport. 

My sister Catherine married again, but more of that later. 



The Indian trouble in Circle Valley continued for about two 
year, then President Young advised breaking up and aband- 
oning the exposed settlement. In April of 1867 we moved from 
Circle Valley and went to Beaver. Not finding employment 
I spent the month of June in peeling tanbark in company 
with my brother-in-law, Charles Van Vleet. We hauled tan- 
bark to Parowan, 45 miles, exchanging it for produce, harness 
and leather. Then I found work in the Beaver grist mill 
owned by Thompson and Stewart. Finally I rented the mill 
for four years. I built up a good trade so I prospered and 
bought two city lots and built a comfortable brick dwelling 
house at a cost of $2000. Then came a call for me to go to 
Dixie, in the Southern country, and take charge of President 
Snow's grist mill at Washington. I responded promptly to the 
call although I dreaded it. Dixie was not a wheat growing 
country and my trade prospered when the wheat supply was 
abundant. I moved my wife Maria to Washington, leaving 
my other families at Beaver. But I wasn't content in having 
the families separated. It wasn't long until I sold out at 
Beaver and brought Margaret and Amy Jane to Washington. 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 31 

I was broken up and unsettled in my feelings, and when 
my four year contract expired with President Snow I moved 
to Long Valley and took up a small farm above Glendale 
and associated my labors with Elders Joseph W. and John 
R. Young. In the spring of 1873 John R. received word that 
his brother, Joseph W., who was then President of St. George 
Stake, was very sick. I saddled a horse and went with John 
R. to St. George. We reached the bedside of the loved one in 
time to witness to him our deep affection, but could not turn 
away the shaft of death. We stayed by his side until he passed 
away and aided in placing the mortal remains in their last 
resting place. He was a lovable man and very dear to me. 
John R.'s heart was so full of sorrow that he wanted quiet 
and solitude. As we returned home, at Virgin Town we left 
the beaten road, and bearing northward plunged into the 
Kanarra forest. We climbed the mountain until we were at 
an elevation of 10,000 feet and there we found the breathing 
spring, so called because it ebbs and flows like the ocean tides. 

In 1873 President Young visited Kanab. In considering 
the circumstances of the people he thought their greatest 
need was a grist mill, and in a public meeting he called John 
R. Young to build one. Brother Young prevailed on James A. 
Leathhead and myself to assist him. Brother Leathead and I 
went into the forest and cut the timber while John R. with 
his boys and mine with our ox teams hauled it twenty-five 
miles to Kanab. It was a heavy stretch of sand dunes which 
had to be crossed, but every obstacle was surmounted. The 
mill was completed at a cost of six thousand dollars in labor 
and material. 

In 1874 President Young and George A. Smith visited 
southern Utah and put forth their best efforts to organize 
the people into working companies called the United Order. 
Elder John R. Young was authorized to visit Kanab, Pehreah, 
Mt. Carmel, and Glendale and establish working companies. 
To me the effect of these organizations was wonderful. Those 
who joined the order were consecrating all their wealth and 
they seemed baptized with a new zeal that filled their souls 
with energy, good will and brotherly love, while those who 
were opposed to it were filled with jealousy and hatred. The 
division and strife at Mount Carmel became so bitter that the 
Order people sold their homes, and choosing a plat uncultivat- 
ed three miles north of Mt. Carmel laid out a town and named 
it Orderville. It grew so rapidly and attracted so much atten- 



32 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

tion that President Young sent Howard 0. Spencer to preside 
over it. He was greatly beloved by his people, but in time he 
was superseded by Thomas Chamberlain, a young man of 
splendid financial abilities. He led the community from pov- 
erty to comfort, and under Brigham Young's watchful eye 
and council they were greatly prospered. I cast my lot with 
the Orderville community, consecrating my farm and teams 
and interest in the Kanab mill; in fact my worldly all was put 
in upon the altar, and I sacrificed in a cause that I believe 
was instituted for the good of the human family. 

I was placed in charge of the boarding house with seven 
assistants. We prepared the food for the whole community, 
numbering at first two hundred souls. It soon increased to 
six hundred. We adopted system and method so that meals 
were served as regularly as clock work and on economic 
lines. The dining room was called "The Big Dining Room," 
no waste of substance, no wasted labor or time. Eight persons 
served breakfast to a hundred families the first year. I gave 
close attention to the management of the "Dining Room." The 
work was confining yet I was contented. 

First of November 1869 I married Louisa Ann Washburn, 
a half sister of Amy Jane, my 2nd vdfe. She was several 
years younger than I and younger than the other wives. 
Even so we got along well together. My families lived together 
in Orderville with none to mar or make afraid. We had good 
schools and well attended meetings, indeed life there was a 
spiritual feast. In 1874 I married Sarah Marinda Thompson, 
the widow of George Spencer. She had four children when I 
married her. 

In 1876 Samuel MuUiner joined the Order. He owned a 
grist mill at Lehi and I took Marinda and her children with 
me and stayed there for about two years running the mill 
for the Order. Then we returned to Orderville. 

At this period the Orderville people were pulling through 
a financial straight. So many poor people had joined us that 
we were overloaded, and it was a difficult matter to provide 
clothing. To remedy this condition John R. and myself were 
authorized to rent sheep for the Order. We went to Cedar City, 
and after a week's negotiation with the directors of the Cedar 
City Co-op we rented six thousand head of ewes for two years. 
This laid the foundation of independence for us. The next 
important movement was the purchasing of the Glendale 
grist mill, and I was put in charge of it. At this date our 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 33 

prospects looked bright indeed. We owned a grist mill, a saw 
mill, a tannery, a thrashing machine, three flocks of sheep, a 
dairy, and our farms yielded one thousand bushels of wheat 
yearly. Our wisest men had been called to the front as direct- 
ors. It was the matured wisdom of Brigham Young that stood 
as a beacon light to us and when that light went out we 
were like a ship that had lost its pilot. The sailors still re- 
mained but they were soon divided in council, and with 
division came weakness. 

When the Order dissolved I moved to Huntington, Castle 
Valley, where I worked at Seeley Brothers' grist mill for 
three years. Then I spent one year playing hide-and-seek 
with the U. S. Marshal, but got tired of the play, so I took 
Louisa and the youngest family and skipped for old Mexico, 
passing through Rabbit Valley, and up the Sevier by John- 
son's, I went with two teams, leving Huntington 13 November 
1888, then across the Buckskin mountain to Lee's Ferry where 
we crossed the Colorado River. The nights were cold but no 
storms. We passed up the little Colorado in Arizona where we 
lost our best horse in the quick-sand crossing the river. This 
was quite a blow to us. I had purchased this fine stallion to 
keep up my horse herd and now he was gone and we needed 
him in our team. On the day before Christmas we reached 
St. Johns, Arizona, where my son, William G., lived with 
his wife, Lucretia, and her children. He was running the 
grist mill in St. Johns and we spent a pleasant week there 
with them, then we moved on. In Round Valley we met 
President David K. Udall and found employment for the 
winter in his grist mill. 

In May 1889 I left Round Valley and landed on 4th June 
of the same year in Colonia Daiz, Chihuahua, Mexico. So here 
I was in a foreign land, not of choice but from necessity, in 
my own land a crimnial, yet I had not injured a living soul. 
The law that makes me an outcast was enacted on purpose 
to convict me and all others of our faith like me, and was 
retroactive in its operation. To me it was largely unjust, 
which adds a sting to its cruelty, but what can't cured must 
be endured. So I take as little of the medicine as possible and 
try to be contented and cheerful. 

I reached Diaz Thursday morning. It was Fast Day so I 
went to Fast Meeting and was introduced to Joseph James, 
who was running a saw mill. Monday morning my son Parley 
and I with two teams went to hauling lumber, and stayed 



34 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

with it until November. I then received a letter from R. W. 
Stoweil of Colonia Juarez wishing me to come and help get 
the machinery into his grist mill. I went at once and helped, 
then cared for the mill for three years, getting good wages and 
giving satisfaction to Brother Stoweil. 

Two of my wives had gone on to the other world but I 
still had two, Maria and Marinda, living in Huntington. As I 
said before I always tried to keep my families together so I 
wrote to Huntington asking them to join me. I realized it was 
a hard move for them to make, to leave everything they had 
ever known and come to a strange, hard land, but I wanted 
them with me. In the summer of 1890 I received word by 
mail that they were on the way with several teams in the 
company. Just before Christmas 1890 they came into Diaz, 
Mexico. They were a tired, discouraged bunch. Some of the 
horses were locoed, a crazy condition brought on by eating 
the loco weed which makes the horse almost useless for a 
long time if he ever gets to be any good again. 

My son Parley and I had built a two roomed, Mexican 
adobe house with dirt roof. We hoped later to build better 
but it was all I could do to keep so many mouths filled. I 
met them there at Diaz and soon took Maria with me to 
Juarez where my work was. My wife Marinda and her son- 
in-law soon had an adobe house for her and I did what I 
could to help them. 

In the spring of 1892 some Mexicans stole my horses and 
some others from Juarez. In company with Guy Taylor, John 
Bloomfield, and Brother Judd I followed them into Texas. 
The boys soon became discouraged and gave up the chase, 
but I followed the trail alone for three weeks; then I too gave 
up, deciding it better to lose my horses than to lose my life. 
On the way back to Juarez I stopped for a few days with my 
wife Louisa and her family and found them having a hard 
time to make a go of it. Parley was a big boy and they had 
two teams and wagons and I thought he could do fairly 
well for his mother but such was not the case. I could do 
nothing much to help at that time as I was out of money 
which was always hard to come by in that hard land. 

When I returned to Juarez the mill had been rented to 
Brother Memmott, and I was out of work, but I soon found 
employment at Jackson's old mill near Cases Grandes. I had 
charge of it for two years until he built the new roller mill. 
During this time I had heard of the new Colony being built 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 35 

in the tops of the Sierra Madre Mountains and I decided to go 
have a look. I took Maria with me and we took up a farm on 
what looked like a likely place to build a grist mill. The spot 
was later called Middleton as it was half way between the 
new Colony, which they named Cave Valley because of the 
many ancient caves along the cliffs and hillsides which 
showed evidence of being ancient dwellings of some dead 
peoples, and the town of Pachco. 

We soon discovered wheat did not do well in the mount- 
ains. The rains came just as the wheat was ready for harvest 
and it mildewed, making it unfit for flour. I couldn't make a 
living on the farm so I left and went back to the Valleys. 
Memmott gave me a position as Superintendent in his new 
roller mill. I continued in this place until 1897 when I retired 
from the milling business. 

In 1893 I had a severe blow when word came that my 
wife Louisa had loaded up her household goods and her 
children and gone back to the States. She had a new son born 
in 1893 whom I had never seen and I still have never seen 
him. I was heartsick at getting this word. I think I was much 
to blame but I was proud, and she left me so I didn't go 
after her. 

Marinda had moved to the mountains and had a nice 
little home in Cave Valley close to her daughter by her first 
marriage and beside the two daughters of ours, Mary Belle 
and Amy. Both of them had married Carroll boys. 

In 1897 there was to be a jubilee in Salt Lake City. Fifty 
years from the day the Mormons entered the Salt Lake Valley. 
I decided to go. I felt I had earned a rest and a vacation. It 
was forty-eight years from the day I entered that same valley 
and was to me a great occasion. I spent the Fourth of July 
and Pioneer Day in Salt Lake City, watched the grand parade, 
and drank of joy and happiness until my soul was full. I 
glanced backwards forty-eight years and saw myself dusty 
and travel stained passing through the little string town with 
its dirt roofed houses to our camp across the river on the 
Jordan commons. Today the City of the Saints stands a 
marvel and a wonder to the world. To me it is the new Jeru- 
salem, the boon of the Latter days. 

Leaving Salt Lake I went to Huntington and visited a 
host of my children who had homes there. Then I went to 
Beaver and visited my sweet sister Rachel. She was a dear 



1/ 



36 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

sweet sister and it was our last visit. From Beaver I returned 
to Mexico and found employment in Father Stowell's pioneer 
grist mill for nearly two years. I attended the mill night and 
day but my best years were past, the evening of life was ap- 
proaching. My lungs commenced bleeding, and one day I 
broke completely down. Father Stowell came to see me and 
pronounced my condition serious. He hurriedly brought 
Doctor Kelts. They arministered to me and the Doctor gave 
medicine that stopped the bleeding, but he forbade me work- 
ing longer in the mill, so I parted with the labors that I loved 
and had followed most of my life. My son David came and took 
me to Pacheco, where I made my home with my wife Maria 
for two years. For exercise I worked in the garden with 
David or Alorley. I rode the range helping to look after our 
stock. 

In 1902 I visited my sons. John M., William G., and Ben- 
jamin D., and my daughters Martha Gale and Tamer Young 
and their families who were living at Fruitland, New Mexico. 
These people had a strong, rapidly growing ward there, and 
every effort was being made to buy out the non-Mormons 
who wished to sell. I went to a bank in Durango, Colorado, 
and borrowed $1100 and bought the McCartage ranch of 
forty acres, including four acres of fine bearing orchard. It 
was a good home and financially a good purchase, but my 
families had become so firmly anchored in Mexico, so many 
of the children had married and built up homes of their own. 
Margaret and Amy Jane had passed to the great beyond, plac- 
ing the burden of caring for me upon Maria and Marinda. 
Most of their children had homes in Mexico and they were 
loath to leave. Under these conditions I regretted having 
purchased at Fruitland, and sold the property to Albert Gale, 
a grandson. During the three years that I held possession of it 
I crossed the desert from Fruitland to Gallup several times. 
Nothing of a thrilling nature occurred, but no one withoui 
actual experience can measure the amount of energy and en- 
durance put forth in crossing those sand dunes and waterless 
deserts. 

While residing at Fruitland and just before returning to 
Mexico I attended the San Juan Conference at ]\Iancos. Colo- 
rado. iVpostle Matthias F. Cowley was in attendance, and on 
the 14th of May 1903 he ordained me a patriarch, and gave me 
a highly treasured blessing. My eldest son, Martin Luther, 
who had become estranged from his wife and family through 



AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM MORLEY BLACK 37 

no fault of his own, was the first I had the privilege of 
blessing in my capacity as a Patriarch. In the fall of 1905 I 
returned to Mexico. In the winter of 1906, in an attempt to 
mount a horse my gloved hand slipped from the horn of the 
saddle giving me a heavy fall, from the effect of which I suf- 
fered and had to be carefully nursed for months. 

From 1906 to 1912 I remained at Pacheco, and during that 
time with the assistance of David and Morley I built a good 
comfortable four-roomed brick house. At its completion 
it was paid for in full. I gathered my Pacheco family and 
friends and dedicated it as a dwelling house, Newel K. Young 
offering the dedicatory prayer. 

When the rebel war broke out between Madera and Diaz 
it was understood by both parties that our people would re- 
main neutral and they were assured they would not be 
disturbed. But when Huerta seized the reins of government 
and Caranza took the field as leader, conditions became so 
violent that President Taft advised all Americans to leave 
Mexico. Still the Mormon colonists hesitated, hoping the war 
would soon pass and peace return without their having to 
leave their homes. But it was not to be, the strife went on and 
robbing of our people became frequent by both parties. The 
Mormons were a hard working, industrious people and in 
their towns could be found all the necessities of war, good 
horses, plenty of food, clothes, good saddles made right in 
their own harness shop and from leather tanned in their own 
tannery, good shoes for soldiers who had never known what 
it was to have a decent pair of shoes. Property rights were 
not respected and we were afraid to leave the shelter of our 
homes. Even our milk cows were killed by passing bands for 
beef, our horses were run off, there was no peace for any of 
us. Conditions were becoming unbearable, some of the men 
were saying they would not put up with this marauding, 
there was constant danger of someone resisting and causing a 
general massacre of all the Mormons. To avoid that calamity 
it was deemed best to sacrifice our homes. 

On the 28th of July 1912, just as our Sabbath meeting 
was closing, a messenger arrived and gave us notice that the 
entire community must be ready to leave by Tuesday morn- 
ing. The shock and grief were beyond telling, some talked 
as though they would not leave. The concensus of opinion 
was that we would be back in a week and all day Monday 
people were rushing around, turning out their animals. 



38 OUR BLACK FAMILY EST AMERICA 

chickens, pigs, and sheep, as well as cows, so they could find 
feed on the hills. The dishes were left in cupboards, some even 
laid the fire in the cook stoves so they could set a match to it 
and cook the day's meal with no extra bother. Monday night 
came and for a few there was rest; some tossed and tumbled 
all night, wondering what the future might hold for them. 
Tuesday morning dawned bright and clear. All accepted it as 
a good omen and the pilgrimage started on a cheerful mood. 
My son, David P., was made captain to guide and direct the 
movement of the company. Twenty-two wagons were loaded, 
all crowded full with the aged and the young, but mostly 
with women and children, as many of the men were staying 
to look after the stock. 

Promptly at seven in the morning the train started to 
move. At Porter's we met the people from Correlles. We 
paused for prayer and sang the song "God Be With You Till 
We Meet Again." As we looked back over our homes, the sun 
shone on the houses making them look like houses from a 
fairy tale. The little town surrounded by hills and towering 
pine trees was home for many of these people. For twenty 
years they had spent their life's entire energy here; now they 
were leaving it. If we had known most of us would never 
again see many of the men and boys who were staying behind, 
our grief would have been much more keen. 

Then commenced in earnest the hard day's drive to 
Pearson. Nine miles out, in Arch Flat, the scouts saw a com- 
pany of Rebel cavalry coming and David stopped us and had 
the teamsters pull the wagons as close together as possible. 
Only David's tact and knowledge of the Spanish language 
kept us from having real trouble there. After demanding our 
arms and amunition and half our horses the Captain promised 
we would not be further molested. They took our best horses, 
leaving us with only enough teams to pull half the wagons.* 
We thought we were crowded before but now we had to 
pile in as best we could. The young people walked most of the i 
way until we came to the top of the mountain. Then we could 
go with ease, there was no more pulling for the horses, and 
we drove on into Pearson in the very late evening. 

The inhabitants of Pearson had abandoned their homes, 
and they were thrown open to us and we found a grateful 
shelter for the night. On Wednesday, the 31st of July we were 



* Thirty years later some of the men returned to Mexico and saw those old wagons 
wrecked and falling apart, still sitting at Arch Flats.

put on the cars (train) at Pearson. There was a limited num- 
ber of cars and in order to take all of the refugees the cars 
were packed to the uttermost limit of their carrying capacity. 
About 10 a.m. the cars moved with their load of human 
freight and about 5:00 p.m. we reached Ciudad Juarez. We 
passed the custom house and arrived in El Paso. There was 
a welcoming committee and they told us they were taking us 
to a lumber camp two miles from town. As we were getting 
into the vehicles Harry Payne came and said, "Father Black, 
the lumber camp is no place for you, you must go to better 
quarters." I replied. "I must go for I have no money to go any- 
where else." He leaned forward and whispered, "I remember 
seeing your name on the tithing record, and you are going to 
be cared for." 

Apostle Ivins came and talked kindly to me. He called 
a brother Sevey and directed him to take me and Maria and 
see that we were well cared for. The instructions were carried 
out. I remember with pleasure the Hotel Alberta where for 
eight days we rested and were treated royally. I feel thankful 
to the good citizens of El Paso for the aid and sympathy they 
gave us. And I feel thankful to our government and to Wil- 
liam H. Taft for the prompt appropriation of the very suf- 
ficient sum of $100,000 to be used in giving aid to the Ameri- 
can refugees who were expelled from Mexico. Of those people 
about 4000 were Latter-day Saints, and the hearts of all were 
gladdened by the generous assistance. 

I append an invoice of property I left in Mexico, the fruits 
of 25 years: 

Brick house and lot in Pacheco, value $1,400.00 

Fifty bearing fruit trees 350.00 

Field fence- and 25 acres cultivated land „ 1,450.00 

Barn 28 x 60 ft., granary and outbuildings 150.00 

Growing crops on 25 acres 900.00 

Furniture, stove, dishes, bedding, trunks, 
sewing machine, family pictures, books, 

provisions 470.00 

34 chickens, 2 pigs, 9 milk cows 460.00 

8 head range cattle 130.00 

2 horses, wagon and double harness 465.00 

2 wells 50.00 



$5,845.00 



40 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

On the 10th of August Maria and I were furnished a rail- 
road pass that would take us to Price, Utah. There was sor- 
row mixed with joy when we parted with our friends and 
fellow sufferers, the colonists. We went to Mexico for a com- 
mon cause, and for twenty-five years we had toiled together 
and had become endeared to each other by the sacrifice we 
had made, and as a finishing touch to our experiences we 
had drunk together from the bitter cup of expulsion from our 
homes. 

A two days' ride on the cars and we landed in the evening 
of the 12th at Price. Our first act was to phone to our children 
at Huntington to let them know of our arrival. Then we went 
with Brother Oliver Harmon and were kindly entertained. 
The next morning before daylight Isaac and Maggie arrived 
and we were safe in the arms of our own dear children. 
Thanking Brother and Sister Harmon for their kindness we 
were soon on the road to Huntington, our old home nest, 
where many of the children still reside. We were driven di- 
rectly to our son Miller's where a multitude of children and 
grandchildren were waiting to greet us. We stayed with Mil- 
ler two and a half months and then went to Isaac's at Ferron 
and stayed six weeks, and then returned to Huntington and 
stayed six weeks with Martin L., and then returned to Isaac's 
and stayed the rest of the winter and spring. 

In June 1913 we went to Richfield and stayed until the 
19th of July, excepting a short visit to Monroe and Redmond 
to see the Washburn family and Maria's sister, Mrs. Chris 
Brienholt, getting back to Huntington in time to join in cel- 
ebrating Pioneer Day, the 24th of July. 

In August I passed through a severe speU of sickness and 
for several days and weeks lay near the point of death. Pre- 
vious to this our son Joseph, his wife and two children, came 
from Hayden, Idaho, to visit us. We also had a visit from 
my son Parley of Caliente, Nevada. I felt gratified at these 
marks of affection shown us by children who had been sep- 
arated from us for so many years. The expulsion from our 
home was almost forgotten in the joy we found in meeting so 
many affectionate and loving children. It made me feel that 
while I may have been a failure financially, yet I had the 
power and the blessing to found a patriarchal family and name 
that shall last in Israel after I have passed away, and that 
knowledge comforts me.

October 1st Maria and I took the train at Price for Thom- 
son Springs, then went by auto (the mail) to Moab where 
David took us with team and spring wagon to Grayson, leav- 
ing us at my daughter Hattie Guymon's, where we were 
warmly greeted by another host of children and grandchil- 
dren. Here I feel it appropriate to say that Charley, Miller, 
Joseph, Walter, and Lona Porter furnished the money for 
these trips. We were also helped by Anton Nielsen, David 
Brienholt, A. B. Hardy, B. D. Black, William L. Young, and

The last of the story of the Ufe of WilUam Morley Black was 
written by his son-in-law, John R. Young, and is as follows: 

At John R. Young's house February 9, 1914, several 
gentlemen, some of them strangers to us and not of our faith, 
in conversation with Father Black, asked if he had ever been 
sorry that he joined the Mormon Church. With great earnest- 
ness he testified that after baptism he received a testimony 
that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God; that he lived and 
died a righteous man, and that testimony had stayed un- 
dimmed with him until the present day. 

Tuesday evening, February 10, the Ward teachers vis- 
ited us. During the visit Father Black arose and testified, "I 
know that God lives, and that Joseph Smith was and is a true 
prophet, and I know that his life's labors were approved by 
the Father, and that Joseph has received a crown of glory as

a reward for his faithfulness, and I want this testimony in- 
corporated with what follows: 

"Feeling grateful to my Heavenly Father for his leading 
me to a knowledge of the Gospel of His Son which has brought 
to me an ordination to the Patriarchal priesthood and by it I 
have received the blessing of wives and numerous posterity, 
and that my children may know that I am humbly proud and 
thankful for these blessings."

John Morley Black 



IV 6. JOHN MORLEY BLACK, b. 27 Nov. 1856 Nephi, Juab, Utah, d. 19 
April 1933. 

He was only a boy at the time of the Black Hawk War but 
he remembered well the time his uncles, Ben Black and Bill Hite, 
were killed by the Indians. In his early teens he helped build the 
St. George Temple. He worked in the Washington factory, near 
St. George, at which cloth and woolens called Lindsey were woven 
and where cloth made from the cotton raised in Utah's Dixie were 
dyed and woven. He was a natural-born mechanic, and before he 
was twenty years old he was supervisor of the factory. He learned 
the milling trade from his father, and in his moving about built 
and operated flour mills in Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, 
and Old Mexico. He was considered one of the best millers in the 
West. He was a quiet, unassuming man, honest to a fault. His word 
was as good as his bond and he was respected wherever he went. 
He is honored and loved by his numerous posterity. 

married 1st 1 Feb. 1877 Thressa Elnora Cox, b. 25 Dec. 1860 Manti, 
Utah, d. 29 July 1926 Blanding, San Juan, Utah. 

Children: 

V 1. Lois Elnora Black, b. 1 Jan. 1878 Orderville, Kane, Utah, d. 19 April 
1951; married 7 April 1989 Samuel Franklin Wright, b. 14 Feb. 1877 
West Jordan, Utah son of John George Wright and Fannie Aditha 
Harrison. 

She was a frail baby, this first child of a seventeen-year-old 
mother, and the lives of both mother and child hung in the bal- 
ance for many weeks. Lois was bom in the home of her grand- 
mother, Margaret Ruth Banks Black, who was the midwife and 
nurse. As a child she lived in the "Order" and well remembered 
the big kitchen, large cooking vats, the wool washing, carding, and 
spinning, the dying of the wool and cotton and the weaving and 
knitting. 

Lois moved with her father's family to Huntington, and from 
there to Arizona. She went to school only between the times dur- 
ing which she helped with the work at home and for the Udalls 
to help with the growing family, but she finished the fifth reader, 
which constituted a good education for those days and conditions. 

Lois was always kind; there was no selfishness in her nature. 
She married "Sam" Wright, and almost alone she raised a fine 
family. Her children are all good citizens, true to the faith they 
believe in; hard-working, industrious people. We wish space 
would permit the praise she deserves.

SAMUEL ETHER BLACK 

Samuel I'.thcr Black's faith li\cf in nicmorv as an inspiring example of a full, 
happy lilc, not in spite oi, but including trials. He met hardships with a smile not 
of endurance, hut ot confidence that it was in God's plan and could be turned to 
opportunity Adversity spurred him to greater achievement. Because of early poverty 
his greatest io\' was being able to give to others. His own unfinished mission caused 
him to strive to keep a missionary constantly in the field. Health failing and with 
business problems too numerous, he thanked the Lord for lots to do. As he lay 
dying he laughed and joked, trying to ease the task for the ones attending him. 

A flour miller in the Black tradition, he was strong and tall, six leet, 200 ]bs., 
fond of hunting and fishing and the heavy lifting of his trade and apparently 
enjoyed an early venture as a trapper. 

He rejoiced in his lamilv and brightened visibly in the presence of his wife 
Lucy [ane Hancock and proudh' claimed they had never had one cross word. 



He enjo\ed church activity, felt especially strong about tithing and the 
welfare program. He was twice a branch president and once a bishop.

Harold recently accepted a permanent appointment as 
Director of Military Branches for the University of Alaska. 
He was Professor of Animal Husbandry at the college prior 
to his appointment, having received the B.S. degree from the 
Utah State Agricultural College in 1942 and the M.S. degree 
from Washington State in 1955.

"Bob" graduated from Box Elder High School in 1938. 
He attended Utah State Agricultural College in Logan, Utah, 
where he was graduated with a major in dairy chemistry in 
1942. He was a member of the National Guard, 222 Artillery, 
for three years. In January of 1942, after Pearl Harbor, he 
enlisted in the Navy Air Corps and became a Lieutenant 
Senior Grade. During World War II he served as a pilot in 
Navy Air Force, in combat the major portion of the time, 
his landing field, a flat-top aircraft carrier. Of the throe air- 



136 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

craft carriers to which he was assigned, the FrankUn and the 
Yorktown were both bombed while he was aboard. On one 
mission, strafing bombers, 30 March 1944, at Palau, his plane 
was hit by anti-aircraft shells, crippling it to the extent that 
he made what has been called "the most spectacular landing of 
the war." When he stepped from the plane, doffing his hel- 
met and laughing into the newsreel camera, his plane was 
minus a tail, instrument, one wing, and the ailerons of the 
other wing, yet he walked away. When Bob was released 
from the service, he received the Presidential Unit Citation, 
the Distinguished Service Cross, the Air Medal and the 
Purple Heart, yet he was so modest no one learned of these 
things except through others. He was employed by the Idaho 
Creameries. Inc., of Boise from 1946 until his recall to the 
service, 1 November 1952. 

On 17 February 1953 Bob was killed when his Navy 
bomber crashed during a high altitude test. His mother 
wrote, "They were testing oxygen masks to see how high 
they could go. He was leading the formation and one boy said 
he radioed Bob that he couldn't go any higher. Bob turned 
and dove down and they followed him, but he kept going. 
After they brought Bob's body home we received letters from 
almost every state in the Union and from Hawaii." His 
mother also says, "I'm grateful for his work in his Church. 
At his funeral service the Seventies lined up on each side of 
the walk; that was the highest tribute that could be paid to 
any man."

IV 6. EDWARD WEBB BLACK, b. 19 Dec. 1881 Orderville, Kane, Utah, 
buried 11 Jan. 1958; married 20 Dec. 1905 Sarah Ellen Holyoak, b. 
5 Aug. 1886 Parowan, Iron, Utah daughter of Nemiah Holyoak and 
Sarah Ann Harper, d. 17 May 1960. 

On the first day of January 1906 this couple moved onto a 
160-acre tract of land. Sarah Ellen says it was covered with thick 
mesquite, very hard to clear off, and that it had "not a very good 
house." They have lived there continuously and have cleared it, 
built a fine home, cultivated the entire acreage, and have two 
deep wells to water the land. Her husband was made Ward Clerk 
in 1907 and held that position until 20 May 1922, when he was 
made Bishop of the Ward, which office he held until 20 Sept. 1938. 
He was active in Church and civic affairs almost all his active life, 
and has been helped in all this by his wife. Three sons all have 
farms nearby and one daughter, Genevie lives not far away.

The following incident in the life of Aunt Louisa and her 
family was sent by her daughter Lula: 

There was an incident in our lives that left a deep and 
lasting impression on all of mother's children and has been a 
staunch testimony to each of us through our lives. That and 
mother's undying faith and strength under all hardships have 
kept me close to the Church and drawn me back when I have 
strayed too far. 

We were living at that time in Mexico, alone in a foreign 
land. We were living in poverty, not even having the necessi- 
ties of life. We could never afford coal oil for a light, so had 
to eat our meager meals before dark. On this particular eve- 
ning, being summer time, my brothers were making their 
beds in the yard by the light of the moon. Mother and we 
girls were in the house preparing for bed. A young couple in

Diaz just married that day had moved into a small house 
across the block from us. I must have been about eight years 
old. I looked toward the small house and exclaimed, "Mama, 
Milo and Georgie have a light, will we ever have a light?" 

Mother answered, 'Yes, dear child, God has not forgotten 
us and some day we will have a light." At that instant there 
appeared in our house a ball of light, brighter than any light 
I have ever seen. It lighted up the house and yard as bright as 
day. It lasted but a few seconds and when it disappeared we 
started asking each other what it could have been. Mother 
said, "That is God's way of showing us we are not forgotten 
and that we have a light with us always as long as we are 
faithful." We have never tried to explain it, but it made a 
lasting impression on all of us and has helped many times to 
carry us over the rough places.

Junius Exile Black 

Left an orphan when he was ten years old, Uncle Jack has 
had many adversities, but through hard work he has triumphed 
over his trials and become a leader. If success is to be measured 
only in material goods, he may not be wealthy, though he would 
be considered a good provider. However, if success is measured 
by treasures stored up in Heaven as Christ taught, then Uncle 
Jack must be counted wealthy indeed. He has been Superinten- 
dent of Water Works in Escondido, California for many years, and 
is loved by all his host of friends. He and his wife, Carrie, have 
been leaders in their community and their Church. They worked 
unceasingly until the new chapel was finished, and now the 
congregation is enriched by Carrie's musical ability. The crown- 
ing achievement of Jack and Carrie's lives is the fine family 
they have raised.

Mary Belle Black 

Mary Belle Black Carroll and her sister, Amy Jane Black 
Carroll, were very close all their lives. Mary was nine when they 
left the order at Orderville and moved to Huntington. From there 
they moved to Mexico, arriving in Colonia Diaz some time in 
December 1890. She and Amy married brothers and they knew 
all the trials and hardships and many of the joys of pioneer life. 
Mary and her large family were forced to leave everything they 
owned in July 1912 because of the Madera Revolution. Her family 
lived for some time in Blanding, San Juan, Utah; then they 
moved to Salt Lake City. The last years of both Mary and Amy 
were spent working in the Temple until ill health forced them to 
stop.

Benjamin Jackson Black 

III 9. BENJAMIN JACKSON BLACK, b. 6 April 1828 Vermillion, Rich- 
land, Ohio, d. 17 Nov. 1865; married Mary Ann King, b. 20 Feb. 1832 
Illinois, d. 19 Feb. 1898. 

We have been able to find very little of the early life of Mary 
Ann King. (For story of her husband see life of his brother, Wil- 
liam.) We have here exactly copied two letters Mary Ann King 
wrote to her brothers, William and John, while she was in Utah, 
written for her by her Brother-in-law, William Hite. 

Fort Ephraim, U. S. 
17 Dec. 1864 

Dear brothers and sisters; 

It is with pleasure that we address you these few lines 
at this time. We are well and sincerely hope that this will 
find you the same. Times are pretty good here at present. 
Wheat is worth five dollars, corn four, oats from two and a 
half to three dollars per bushel. Common labor is four dollars 
per day. 

This country is not much like the States in many re- 
spects. In the first place, if you want to buy a farm in an old 
settlement you would not always buy the land but you would 
buy the water that is necessary to irrigate it. The land until 
it is watered is worth nothing, but if watered from one to 
three times it will produce fine. In another respect it differs 
in timber. All the valuable timber is of pine and fir species, 
also quaking aspens and cedar. All of these are found on the 
mountains and in the canyons or hollows. As to stone, it is 
abundant and of the best quality for building but the cheap- 
est house here is of the adobe or sun dried brick. Salt Lake 
City is more than two-thirds of that kind of building. It also 
differs in the manner of making improvements. The settle- 
ments are made in villages or towns and the fields are all in 
one enclosure, with the town or settlement in the center. It 
looks strange to see the grain stacks in the towns but so it is. 
All of the towns in these valleys have the same features. They 
have on the town lots their gardens, their corral or cattle pen 
as it is called. The water for drink or other purposes is con- 
veyed in ditches into the several streets so that there is no 
street but has water running on one side or the other. 

Benjamin is now gone to Circle Valley to build a house 
preparatory to moving in the spring. He is going to quit log- 
ging and going to farming. Perhaps you wonder at the high 



250 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

prices of produce here and will think it is a consequence of 
a failure of the crops. But that was not the case. There was 
nearly 45,000 bushels of wheat sold from this valley in Salt 
Lake City of last year's crops and it is supposed that the 
present crop will be as abundant so you see that the wheat 
fields of this country are and will be a great source of wealth. 

I want you to write as soon as you get this and send 
your likenesses as we are going south in the spring and will 
be a long distance from a post office so send them if you 
please as soon as you get this. No more but remaining affec- 
tionately your sister, 

Mary Black 

To William King and Family 

P.S. Please to have likeness drawn from your first wife's and 

send them all together. 

Fort Ephraim, U. S. 

Dec. 17th 1864 

Dear Brother John and Family, 

We embrace the present moment to write you a few 
lines and hope that they will reach you and find you all in 
good health. We are sorry to hear of the troubles of the war 
continuing among you for so long but of one thing be as- 
sured, the war has just begun and it will continue till north 
and south are exhausted and humble, and they will submit 
to the authority of the saints and acknowledge the Prophet 
Joseph Smith, and obey the Gospel. Here is the prophecy of 
the prophet, "Verily, thus saith the Lord concerning the wars 
that will eventually terminate in the death and misery of 
many souls. The days will come that war will be poured out 
upon all nations beginning at that place; for behold, the south- 
ern states shall be divided against the northern states and 
the south will call on other nations, even on the nation of 
Great Britain as it is called, and they shall also call upon 
other nations and thus war shall be poured out upon all na- 
tions and it shall come to pass after many days slaves shall 
rise up against their masters who shall be marshalled and 
disciplined for war and it shall come to pass also that the rem- 
nants who are left of the land will marshal themselves and 
shall become exceeding angry and shall vex the gentiles with 
a sore vexation and with the sword and by bloodshed the 
inhabitants of the earth be made to feel the wrath and indig- 
nation and chastening hand of the Almighty God, until the 



BENJAMIN JACKSON BLACK 251 

consumation decreed has made a full end of all nations and 
the cry of the Saints and the blood of the Saints shall cease 
to come up into the ears of the Lord of Saboath from the 
earth to be avenged of their enemies, wherefore stand ye in 
holy places and be not moved until the day of the Lord come, 
for behold it cometh quickly, saith the Lord. Amen." 

Now brother, you have the prophecy, you can take it as 
you please but look upon the events of the day and see if 
you see anything like the fulfillment of the things spoken. I 
need hardly say to you come to the valleys for you will not 
believe, if you will not you must suffer the consequences but 
if you cannot make up your minds to come we would like if 
you would send your likenesses. Do send it by return mail as 
we will be gone some distance from the post office, send all of 
your communications to Fort Ephraim until directed to send 
them elsewhere. Mother Black and William Kite's folks send 
their love to you all. When you see Luther's folks say to them 
to write to us. We have not had anything from Lawrence 
County since last August except a letter from you to Robert 
McGuire with a picture. I must close by saying adieu to the 
John King family. 

Mary Black 

With love, 

Both of these letters were written for Mary Ann King to send 
to her brothers because Mary herself could neither read nor write. 
Later when she was left in Fort Washakie, Wyoming, she was 
completely out of touch with her family in Illinois because of this. 
Someone wrote to us that she married a soldier but until we found 
her daughter we knew nothing about her and thought Uncle Ben, 
as he was known to the family, died without leaving any descend- 
ants. Mary Ann King died in Gillett, Montana.

Rachel Black 

Rachel and her husband were two who listened to the mes- 
sage her brother William Morley took to them when he went 
back to get his wife and two children. They came to Utah and 
settled in Beaver. When Rachel's mother, her brother Benjamin 
Jackson Black and his wife, and the youngest sister Catherine 
with her husband came to Utah to visit William and Rachel, they 
went first to Rachel in Beaver. Later they moved to Fort Ephraim 
near where William and his family were living. The Indian War 
broke out and they were forced to stay in the Fort. Rachel and 
Charles moved to Circleville and were there at the time Benjamin 
and William Hite were killed by the Indians on 17 October 1865. 
They went to Fort Ephraim to see the three women and the chil- 
dren off on their return to Illinois. Some of the older children 
who were married have stayed in Beaver and the descendants 
are still there.

ligament in his arm, he traveled for Beck and Corbet Hard- 
ware Company of St. Louis for a time. As for myself, I was in 
the drygoods, ladies' furnishings and shoe business at Bridg- 
port for seven years, then came to Texas where I served as 
Division Credit Manager for Continental and Atlas Supply 
Companies for some twenty-three years. I did not attend col- 
lege and have only a high school education. Mr. son. Dr. Tom 
is a graduate in medicine of Washington University of St. 
Louis, Mo., having followed his graduation with three years 
internship and has the highest degree in pediatrics. Richard is

sistant manager with Sears Roebuck at Longview, Texas. He

married 2nd Ellen Jane Finley, b. 15 Jan. 1851 Bridgport, Lawrence, 
111., d. 15 May 1910 daughter of John Marcus Finley and Margaret 
Martin (the wives were sisters). 

The following is an excerpt from the memoirs of John Edwin 
Black, son of William Black and Mary Lake, written about 1930: 

In the spring of 1866, word came from Utah that my 
cousin Ben Black and William Hite had been killed by In- 
dians while in the mountains after saw logs. They had de- 
cided not to remain in Utah and were preparing to move to a 
new location. Their families and Aunt Polly (Mary Cline) 
determined to return to their friends and relatives. Early in 
the spring our folks were to arrive with a man who was 
coming with two wagons, who brought them to a little town, 
Wyoming, in the southeast corner of Nebraska on the Mis- 
souri River. They drove one team and the younger ones 
walked much of the time. Letters came to Luther Black, Ben's 
brother, stating the time when they would begin their journey 
and when they proposed to reach the town of Wyoming. 
Letters were now carried by the celebrated Pony Express 
from Kansas City to Salt Lake City and on to California at 
the rate of 300 miles a day; letters could be received and 
mailed at two or three forts along the route for United States 
troops were stationed to look out for Indian raids on emi- 
grants that were on their way to Utah, California or Oregon. 
Martin Luther Black and James Milhouse, a son-in-law of 
Aunt Polly's, proposed to me that they would pay my ex- 
penses if I would meet their folks at Wyoming and bring 
them home. I accepted their proposal and started on the 4th 
of July, got to St. Louis and about 1 p.m. found a steam boat, 
"William J. Louis," that would leave for Omaha, Nebraska, 
at 4:00, secured passage to Wyoming and return for $25.00. 
This included board, which was fine. The boat was loaded 
with railroad iron and went up stream very slowly, made 
about four miles an hour. On the 5th morning at daybreak 
we rounded up at Wyoming, no town in sight. The clerk told 
me the town was one-half mile off. The way was a wagon 
road with brush and scrub timbber on each side, rather 
scarey when I was alone. I soon got out to a town with a few 



276 OUR BLACK FAMILY IN AMERICA 

houses with many covered wagons in all directions. I was 
soon near a small framed house where an old man was sitting 
on the porch putting on his shoes. I asked him for a place for 
breakfast and he replied, "We feed folks." I asked him how 
long these wagons had been there and he said three days. I 
also asked if he knew of two women and two little boys. He 
said he had heard of such and they were staying in a wagon 
— pointing in the direction. When nearing the wagon I saw 
Aunt Polly. I was near before she saw me and she said, 
"Well, Edwin," and began crying for joy. "Kathryn, Edwin 
is here." She was soon out to see me. I said "Come with me 
and get breakfast." They said, "No, we have something to 
eat, we will eat it." I went back to the old man's place, got 
my breakfast, then came back and talked with them. The 
following night we stayed with the old man, who was from 
Missouri. Never in my life did I have such an experience with 
bed bugs. They came near eating the little boys up, from 
head to toe. 

As the steam boat was to return from Omaha the next 
day-at 11:00, I got Aunt Polly, Katherine, and the two boys 
with their few boxes and trunk, down to the landing in time 
to catch the steam boat. The steam boat did not come into 
sight until nearly 1:00. After we went on board we had a fine 
dinner. Now on the broad Missouri bound for St. Louis, we 
made good time going down stream. We were three days 
reaching St. Louis. We soon got to the depot, got a train for 
the town of Sumner, five miles from home. We arrived in 
Sumner about 9:00 p.m. I took the folks to a small hotel. I 
got a horse at the livery stable and was soon at home. In the 
morning I let Martin Luther know where his mother and 
sister were and he got his team and wagon and had them 
home by dinner time.

We have corresponded with Dr. Floyd for many years, and 
though we have never met him personally, we feel as if we are 
old friends. The following history is being included just as it was 
submitted by him. 

My earliest recollections are of a large farm near Bridg- 
port, Lawrence, Co., Illinois, where I was born. My father, 
John Edwin Black, was by occupation a farmer but had sev- 
eral other interests, having begun as a school teacher; later 
in 1867-68 he was employed as a clerk in a government office 
in Washington, D.C. He served two terms in the Illinois leg- 
islature, was a Democrat and a Baptist. My mother, Ellen 
Jane Finley, was of North Irish descent, born in Philadelphia. 

From the age of five I attended Washington School, a 
one room country school. In 1898 the family moved to Tupelo, 
Mississippi, where I attended an inferior primary school for 
thr^e years until the family moved to a farm near Johnston 
City, Illinois. In 1907 I graduated from the Johnston City 
High School and the same autumn entered as freshman in 
Carson-Newman College, Jefferson City, Tenn., where I spent 
four valuable years, graduating with the A.B. degree in 1911. 

In the summer of that year I was appointed an instructor 
in Robert College, Istanbul, Turkey, where I spent three in- 
teresting and exciting years. 

My wife is a graduate of the American College for Girls 
at Istanbul, where she also was a teacher. 

Returning to the USA during the first week of the First 
World War I spent the next five years studying at Andover 



JOHN EDWIN BLACK 279 

Theological School and Harvard Divinity School in Cam- 
bridge, Mass. 

Then in 1919 we went back to Robert College where I 
was professor of Latin and Bible as well as being one of the 
college preachers. After completing six more years at Robert 
College we returned to Cambridge, Mass., on leave for one 
year. Then on February 2, 1926 I was appointed president of 
the American College of Sofia, Bulgaria, where I spent the 
next seventeen years. During these years a new college was 
organized and built at a cost of more than $500,000 (now 
valued at more than $2,000,000) with a co-educational student 
body of above five hundred. The teaching staff of about 
fifty instructors was one-third American and two-thirds Bul- 
garian. In March 1941 Bulgaria was occupied by the German 
army with a pro-Nazi government in office. On December 13, 
1941, Bulgaria declared war on the United States. We con- 
tinued to operate the college until September, 1942, when it 
was seized by the Bulgarian authorities and the American 
staff allowed to go to Istanbul, where I was appointed a spe- 
cial assistant in the Department of State of the U.S. with 
office in the American Consulate. There during the next two 
years I wrote more than one thousand dispatches on Bul- 
garian politics, economics and social affairs. 

On July first, 1944, I became president of Robert College 
and the American College for Girls, an office I held until 
retirement on July 1, 1955. During these eleven years the 
colleges, which had suffered heavy deficits as a result of the 
war, were placed on a sound financial basis with nearly all 
deficits paid and the endowments increased from about $5,- 
000,000 to nearly $8,000,000 market value. In the year 1954- 
55 the registration of students was 1,720, including 1,040 boys 
and men and 680 girls. 

In October, 1955, my wife and I returned to the USA 
and located in Arlington, Mass., for we wanted to be in the 
vicinity of Boston. I now spend my time lecturing on Turkey 
and other Near East topics, do some writing, and am presi- 
dent of two public service organizations — the Twentieth Cen- 
tury Association of Boston, and the Institute of World Affairs, 
chartered in New Hampshire. Each puts on programs on 
public questions.
