4. 11 JUN 2012--According to Jan Black Lopez, descendant of William Dye Black & 2nd wife, Naomi Surber: "William Dye Black is buried in Linn Co. at Walnut Grove Cemetery. His stone would be gone by now since he died in 1869 and I don't think the cemetery was cared for very well for years."
A SPECIAL THANKS to Jan Lopez for all the research she has done on her family and for sharing information with me.
