LDS Ancestral File AFN: 10SQ-3LR has John being born in 1846 and dying in 1880. The 1860 Census shows John was 15 years old so he was born in 1845. Mississippi Confederate Grave Registrations by Betty Couch Wiltshire has John born in 1837 and dying in 1879, it also list John as serving in the 9th Mississippi Calvary during the Civil War.

Leaf, MS was part of Greene county until 1910 when it became George county.

The year of John V. Black's death is believed to be in 1877. He was sawing logs with a deaf Cochran boy, believed to be a relative. He saw a limb fall and jumped to knock the deaf boy out of the way but the limb hit John and killed him. The location that he died at is 1.5 to 2 miles from the Pipkin's Cemetery near the old Avent sawmill.
