BLACK, Wm Woods - Died, June 18th, 1897 at his residence 4 miles northeast of Bentonville in the 67th year of his age, Wm. Woods Black. The deceased was born in the State Tennessee Jan. 9th, 1830 and came with his parents to Arkansas in 1833. Forty-nine years ago he professed faith in Christ as a personal Savior and untied with the Cumberland Presbyterian church, in the communion and fellowship of which he lived an esteemed and useful member. In 1851 he was first married to Margarett E. Woods. To them were born seven children, six of whom, together with their mother he had followed to the grave. Dec. 15th, 1876 he was again married to Sarah Ann Jeffries, who in all his trials, bereavements and afflictions and suffering the grace of God was sufficient help of him and the sun of his life went peacefully down in the Christian hope, increasingly great and unshaken. Bro. Black was one of the oldest settlers of Benton county. He had seen the country rise from its wild and wilderness state to be the land of beautiful and prosperous towns, dotted with schools and churches, magnificent farms and orchards and comfortable and lovely residences, the home of many thousands, happy in their possessions and enjoyments. His life was truly conservative and his influence for good. He will be missed in the home, the church and the community. The whole community mourns the loss and deeply sympathizes with his disconsolate widow and Mrs. Eva Woods, the only living child, and the dear grandchildren so faithful to care for him in his affliction. May God bless them and sanctify this together with all the dispensations of His providence to their and to our good. P. Carnahan, Pastor. [Benton County Democrat - Bentonville, Benton County, Arkansas - July 1, 1897]
