Judah "Aunt Judy" Black
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 14, 1763
Death: Jan. 18, 1843

Judah Black or Huldah Black or Aunt Judy (according to "my grandmother said" stories) was a slave owned by the Wilcoxson family. In the early days records showed that the family owned two or three slaves. By the 1830 census, there was only Aunt Judy who was elderly and approximately the same age as Aaron and Hannah Wilcoxson. It is worth noting that her gravestone was identical to those of Aaron and Hannah.

The comments below were posted by an earlier contributor. It is also worth noting that Isaac Wilcoxson had a still on Bear Creek. Perhaps they served the spirits made at the tavern about which I would like to know more.

The dates were posted on earlier transcriptions.

***
Along with the above dates, the following bio is provided by Linda Morris Croy: She was a colored woman who gets credit for building the rock chimney at the old tavern. The inner spread of the flue held two hugh iron kettles on a huge crane with plenty room for the dinner pots and tea kettles. Located directly opposite the old mill dam on Bear Creek back of the old tavern with the rock chimney built by Judy Black.
