ROBERT BLACK was born on 19 Nov 1864 at Govan, Lanarkshire, Scotland. He died before 1870.

Matthew and Margaret had two children listed with the name RobertS1. It is likely that this older Robert died young, perhaps stillborn, as he is not listed in the 1871 censusS2. Matthew's father was named Robert. It is likely Matthew and Margaret wished to honor him with a namesake so their son born seven years later was also named Robert.
