Rev James H. Black Cumberland Presbyterian Minister 1795 - 1859
BLACK, JAMES.--The son of Thomas and Margaret Black, was born in Kentucky, Nov. 20, 1795. His parents were devotedly pious, and gave their son a good training. His education was private and somewhat limited; he never attended College or Seminary; he was licensed and ordained by Arkansas Presbytery in 1827 as pastor of Mt. Prairie church, Hempst'd Co., Ark. He subsequently preached in the church at Washington, Ark. His health became impaired, and he removed with his family to Coffeeville, Texas, where he died, Feb. 14, 1859, of paralysis.
He was a most estimable man, very useful and laborious, spending much of his time as an evangelist.
He was twice married: first, to Miss A. B. Craig; and second, to Mrs. Clarinda Rawles, who, with five sons and two daughters, survives him.
