Alexander Y Black was born to David Black and Annis "Annie" (Young) Black. He lived in Kiskimentas Township Armstrong County. He was first married to Mary Boyd Eckman and had most of his children with her. Her date of death is not certain. It is known that he married a second time to Mary Miller by which death certificates of John and Joseph indicate her as the mother.

The children born to this family are as follows:

1825 Mary Ellen m. Joseph Stitt
1827 Anna Elizabeth m. Philip A. Deemer
1829 Margaret m. Christopher Johnston
1831 Mary Jane m. James K. Deemer
1833 James A m. Margaret McSparrin
1835 Caroline m. Peter Johnston
1839 Letitia m. a Patterson believed to be James A.
1840 John Alexander m. Isabella Scott
1843 Joseph Miller m.Isabella Hawk

Some family histories state that he was buried at Olivet Cemetery. He was part of that church and part of the building committee. There is no stone clearly marked with his name there. Further research is needed to confirm his burial there.
