Gospel preacher listed on Ligon's Portraiture of Preachers of 1899.

Charles S. Black, of 487 Canton Avenue, Detroit, Mich., was born on July 29, 1864, at Mount Forest, Ontario, Canada. When he was but eight years of age his parents moved to Deanville, Mich. He completed his education in the Fenton Business College at Fenton, Mich. Following his graduation he taught school for several years. His life's work as a preacher of the gospel began during this period of his life, his first sermon being preached when he was nineteen years of age. His forty-four years in the ministry embraced work in Michigan, Maine, Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, Canada, and throughout the central and midwestern States. He was married on January 1, 1897, to Miss Margery Rusnell, and to this union were born three children--Mrs. Walter Raz, Mrs. James Wineinger, and Harmon Black. He departed this life at Harper Hospital, Detroit, Mich., May 13, 1928, at the age of sixty-three years, nine months, and fourteen days, survived by his wife, three children, and two brothers. Brother Black preached at Windsor, Ontario, on Lord's day and went to the hospital the following day. He never regained consciousness from an operation, and passed away peacefully on Lord's day, May 13. For some time he had been doing work in Canada and Michigan under direction and assistance of some of the churches of Christ in Detroit. Funeral services were held at Hamilton Avenue (Plum Street) Church, conducted by Brother John T. Smith, assisted by Brethren W. S. Long, C. F. Witty, E. G. Rockliffe, and the writer, after which his body was taken to Yale and placed beside his parents to await the judgment. - A. F. Dalton. Gospel Advocate, May 31, 1928, page 526.
