In trying to determine the parents of James Buchanan Black I read that Robert Black Jr and his Wife Jane had filed a lawsuit in an attempt to recover land left to Jane from her Father James Buchanan.I believe that he was in Robertson county Tenn when this was done.The attorney who was appointed to represent their instrest was David Buchanan who I believe was located in Agusta County Va.The article also stated that Robert Black Sr was appointed as power of attorney.Robert Black Sr was apparently residing in Va at that time.This event is supposed to be recorded in Chalkle'sl page 263 dated 06 November 1797.This event would of occured approximately oone year prior to the birth of James Buchanan Black.

The parents of William Black b. 13 Nov. 1817 are Robert Black and Jane Buchanan. I have letters from William F. Black and Octavia Black giving some family genealogy. I descend from William's oldest brother James Buchanan Black b. 1799.

Robert Black and Jane Buchanan parents of James Buchanan Black

You answer to my question is right on the money.I have suspected that James Buchanan Blacks parents were Robert Black Jr and Jane Buchanan but had nothing to verify my suspicions.I am also  from JBs line. My Father Robert William Black was the second Son Of Albert Foster Black who was the Son of William Andrew Black the forth child of James and Mary G.Albert Foster was a son through William Andrews second marriage to Eveline Foster the Daughter of Charles  and Eunice Rood Norton.  I am relatively new to the genology game but my older sister Rosemary Melbourne has been involved in this quest for twenty or more years.She just in the last couple of weeks has lost her husband of 50 years so her genology pursits have been limited.She has composed a bookklet of research she entitled Echos , the tales of ancestors named Black.I am going tro invite her to Wikitree and I am sure that she will be more than happy to share her research with you.If Robert Black Jr was JBs Father then his Father must of been Robert Black Sr of Agusta County Va.I have also suspicioned that our line of the Blacks have been closely associated with the Presbyterian Church.My Father once told me that are family came from the Black Forest area of Germany.He said that it was in the area that was sometimes under German contol and sometimes under French control.I can't begin to thank you enough for your response to my question that has been an obsession with me for several years.I pray that we can continue to correspond on our families roots.
