I am looking for information on Malcolm Black (abt. 1690), his wife Catherine Mcarthur (abt. 1694), their ancestors and descendants. According to LDS records they had the following sons: John Black Abt. 1720, Archibald Black Abt. 1722, Alexander Black Abt. 1724, Hugh Black Abt. 1726, William Black Abt. 1728, Kenneth Black 1730. They were all born on Isle Of Jura, Scotland. Sometime between 1730 and 1757 the family moved to North Carolina. Archibald settled in Cumberland County, North Carolina near the Cape Fear River. Hugh and Kenneth settled in Moore County, NC.

Archibald's son Malcom Black, Sr. was born in Robeson or Cumberland County, NC. Malcom Black, Sr. married Sarah (we think her maiden name was Ray or maybe Daye). He moved his family to Greene County, MS (now George County near the unincorpated township of Leaf, also reffered to as Mc Leods or Advent on some maps).

Malcom Black, Sr. son Malcom Black, Jr. born abt. 1811 in NC died abt. 1865 in Greene County, MS Malcom, Jr. married Louisa Breland.

Malcom Black, Jr.'s son John Vinson Black was born in Leaf, MS and married Margrett Cowart.

John Vinson Black's son Malcom Knox Black was born March 12,1870 and died in 1947 in Leaf, MS. Malcom Knox Black married Virgie Mazelle. Virgie died in June 1953.

They had several childern, one was Hughie Black born May, 1921 and died April 6, 1997.

Hughie Black is my father. I am Richard Hughie Black.

  • Hugh Black's Will 1807 (HTML) (2 KB)
    Hugh's Will proves that Archibald Black of Cumberland County is the brother of Kenneth Black of Moore County. Which also proves that Malcolm Black born 1690 on the Isle Of Jura, Scottland is Archibald's father. This means Arichald was born about 1722 in Jura Scotland instead of 1739 in North Carolina.
