      Silas Taylor Black

      He married first Sarah Ann Reynolds.
      Children: Lenora, Thame, Orvil, Mark and Hosea. After his wife's death he moved from Jackson County to Lawrence County, married and raised a family there.

      His second wife was Mattie Tucker. 1900 Lawrence County census list him as head of household, owned fifty acres of Land free of mortgage and that he could read and write. Other records show that he was Postmaster at Landersville in 1906. He owned a farm North of Old Town Creek Church.

      I've heard that he owned land and two cotton gins in the Section, Alabama area. My father said he was a peddler. He remembered how tired he would be after a dawn-to-dusk work day on the route. Also, that he helped him make jewelry to sell. I know that he lived near Moulton at some time because his second-marriage children finished school there. My memories of him are few.

      He died when I was 13. He is buried at Blackground Cemetery, near Town Creek.
