Birth: Aug. 12, 1874
Death: Mar. 4, 1960
Johnston County
Oklahoma, USA

John and Annie Black were both born in 1874 and were joined in marriage at the age of 22 in 1896. They made their home on a section of land northwest of Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Here they farmed and raised cattle.
The first child was a girl, Nora Belle born on July 17, 1898. Soon other children followed, Bill, Lizzie, Henry, Alice, Roy and Jesse.
Four of the children married into the Davis family, Bill married Mollie Davis, Henry married Viola Davis, Alice married George Davis and Roy married Minnie Davis. Jesse married Ellen Selby who was a half sister to Nora's second husband, Fred Johnson. Nora's son by her first marriage to Isaac McDonald, Roland McDonald married Lillian Ritter, Lillian's sister Goldie Cleo married Amos Selby who was a half-brother to Fred. No one crossed blood lines or inter-married; but because these few families produced so many marriages within their bounds it produced a very tight knit community of family and friends.
