"The Black family was well established in Vermillion, Richland County, Ohio, until 1837, when the elder son of the family (John) lost his farm and decided to move to Illinois where land was to be had for the taking. Judging from the land deal, the rest of the family followed very soon. The sister, Rhoda, with her husband and family were already in St. Francisville, Lawrence County, by the time John reached there, and soon the whole family had taken farms and were settled close to what is now Bridgport, Lawrence county, Illinois. They were staunch Baptists, and when a church was erected the names of the Black family were all engraved on a plaque outside the door. So many of the family lived there the settlement was called Blacksburg; the name, however, was later changed to Bridgport. In Ohio William Black owned and operated on his own land the first grist mill on the Black Fork of the Vermillion River."1
John David Black died Oct. 15, 1839 at Bridgeport, Lawrence County, Illinois. He was buried at Bridgeport in Oct. 1839.
