Docia Ella was the only child of Alfred and Sarah (McLin) Ebright. Her father died when she was a year old and her mother was married to James Kirk Latimer a few years later. She grew up in a family of two half-sisters and three half-brothers who loved her as one of their own.
The Latimer family lived near Mayetta, Jackson County, KS for many years before moving by covered wagon to Oklahoma Territory in 1896. They settled on a farm in the Corbett community east of the present town of Lexington.
Ella Ebright was married to Samuel Smith Black on Aug. 30, 1900 at Norman, OT and they made their first home on a farm in the Corbett community, where their two children were born. Much later they moved into Lexington, where Mr. Black worked as a ginner. They were of the Baptist faith.
After a long illness, Ella Black departed this life at their home in Lexington, leaving to mourn her passing, her husband, her children; Bernice, of Lexington, and Alimoth and his wife, Jewell, of Lindsey, and one grandson, Donnie Black. Other survivors were two half-sisters; Myrtle Smith (and her husband, Dave), of Corbett, and Louise Latimer, of Elk City, OK and two half-brothers; Guy Latimer of Canute, OK and Kirk Latimer (and his wife, Pearl) of Foss, OK; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, her half-brother, Tom Latimer, and a sister-in-law, Elva Latimer.
Services were conducted from Rackley Funeral Chapel by Rev. Jim Owens and Rev. Ben F. Bland, with interment in the Lexington City Cemetery on Dec. 31, 1950.
