    MRS. F. G. BLACK

    Mrs. F. G. Black, widow, farmer; P. O. Covington. Mrs. F. G. Black is the widow of Rev. F. G. Black. In speaking of those who are gone, we feel that this history would not be complete, without a personal mention of Mr. Black. He was a native of Jefferson Co., Ky., born March 9, 1808; educated in the Old School Presbyterian Church, and professed religion when 17 years of age. Three years later, he left the Old School Church, connected himself with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and was ordained minister in that church. In. 1840, he moved to Lebanon, Warren Co., Ohio, and was Pastor of the church in that place for thirteen years; in April, 1853, he moved to Centerville, Ind., was Pastor there for thirteen years; and in April, 1866, he came too Covington, where he was Pastor of the church until his death, March 5, 1871; he died while holding a revival in his church; when he fell, he said they should let him die, for he had the harness on, and was ready to go; he was a faithful servant, always serving the Master. His death was a great loss to the church and community. Mr. Black's marriage with Miss Kate Frederic, of his native place, was celebrated Dec. 11, 1851; they had nine children, of whom five are living; P. E., William H., Pastor of the First Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Pittsburgh, Penn., Chauncey, Ida K. and Mattie Bell.
