John Black & Elizabeth Colville

Claiming John and Elizabeth (Colville) Black as my ancestors works only if their granddaughter, Elizabeth (Acklin) Hinds, was also my ancestor.  I believe this is so, but the evidence is thin at this point.

John Black was born ca 1715 in Ireland and died after October 22, 1747, in Virginia.  Here is a fabulous timeline (map included) of events pertinent to the Black family (two items shown).  John Black's transcribed will is also available at that link as are various land transactions.

Elizabeth Colville was born about 27 April 1722 in Ireland; this post suggested that Elizabeth and her second husband, Samuel Newell, were buried in the Eusebia Church Cemetery in Blount County, Tennessee.
