Uncle Black was the son of Jesse B Shirley and unknown mother (perhaps last name Allen). He was raised in the Sequatchie Valley and lived in Bledsoe, Hamilton, and Davidson Counties in Tennessee until he moved to Texas in 1881. He had three wives: Mary Frances Worthington, by whom he had six children; Cassandre "Cassie" Elizabeth Dilbeck Fitts, by whom he had four children; and Annie Moore, by whom he had one daughter when he was 92 years old! He died at 114 years of age (as reported on the death certificate) after he fell from a horse and then developed the flu. He served in the Union Army during the Civil War in Company F, 15th Tennessee Infantry.
