BIOGRAPHY: Edson and Chester Black Edson and Chester Black are joint owners with their father of a roller flour mill at Blanding and are enterprising and progressive young business men. The former was born at Gunnison, Utah, November 28, 1886, and the latter at Huntington, Utah, January 19, 1889. Their parents are John M. and Theresa (Cox) Black. The father was born at Nephi and the mother at Manti, Utah, and they were married at St. George in 1877. John M. Black became familiar with the milling business in his boyhood and youth. In 1886 he removed to Gunnison, taking charge of the mill there, and after two years he made his way to Huntington, where he engaged in the lumber business for two years. He then went to Arizona, where he operated a mill for David K. Udall for eight years and during that time he installed a mill at Mesa, Arizona. In 1896 he went to St. Johns, where he operated a mill for two years and then removed to Aztec, New Mexico, where he was connected with another mill for four years. He afterward installed still other mills in Colorado and Old Mexico and finally settled at Blanding, Utah, in 1911. Here in connection with his sons he built a mill which they now own and operate. It is thoroughly modern in construction and equipment and the business is most carefully and wisely conducted. As the sons grew they were instructed by their father in all the work of the mill, with which they became familiar in principle and detail. They are now active in the development of the business and in the operation of the plant and are meeting with substantial and gratifying success. Edson Black was married at Salt Lake City, October 2, 1912, to Miss Addalade Oliver, a daughter of William E. and Mary Oliver, and they have five children: Anthon, who was born September 25, 1913; Albert, whose birth occurred February 9, 1915; Barnard, whose natal day was February 3, 1916; Verna, born September 30, 1917; and Ula, who was born on the 3d of April, 1919. Chester Black was married December 24, 1913, at Salt Lake City, to Sarah Hancock, a daughter of Joseph W. and Jerusha (Spencer) Hancock, residents of Blanding. Their children, three in number, are as follows: Naomi, whose birth occurred October 13, 1914; Millie, born November 21, 1915; and Irene, born October 11, 1918. The families are socially prominent in Blanding and throughout this section of the state and the brothers, like their father, are very enterprising and progressive business men, alert to every opportunity and thoroughly qualified in the line of business to which they are directing their energies and attention.
