John S Black Family in Grimes County
Posted by: Jane Hawthorne (ID *****8370) Date: August 30, 2009 at 10:43:28

John S Black was born in TN about 1790 and settled in Grimes County around 1830. John and his son Monroe were at the Seige of Bexar in late 1835 and John later participated in the Battle of San Jacinto. I have read that Monroe later operated a freight business from Nacogdoches to San Antonio. Most of John's children are documented but I have not been able to find anything on Monroe. The story in my husband's family on his maternal side is that they descend from Monroe through his daughter Lucinda. Any help on verifying this would be very helpful.
