W. W. Black with 1st wife, Mary E. age 27, and children Mary E 4, Wm A. 1 yr are in Erath Co. TX 1860 census.

By 1870 Wm W listed as "Will Black" age 41 in 1870 Wilson County, Sutherland Spgs. P.O. with 2nd wife, Susan, age 24, along with children from 1860 cenus plus Martha, age 9, (which could mean her mother died shortly after her birth),
and twins Laura & Emma age3 and son John age 1.

Some records reflect he was born in Hempstead, Arkansas in 1829 and died in June 1903 Comal Co. TX.

Susan Elizabeth Talley is listed as marrying William W. Black in the U. S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900: Marriage Year 1866; Marriage State Texas; No. Pages 1.

It might help if you knew what county Susan's family lived in around 1860-70 census, as I did not find them in Wilson Co.
