b.16 SEP 1866 Govan, Lanarkshire, Scotland
Facts and Events
SAMUEL BLACK was born on 16 Sep 1866 at Govan, Lanarkshire, Scotland. There is no Samuel in the 1871 censusS2. There is a four year old Samuel James in the 1881 censusS3. Either the LDS birth year has a typo and should read 1876 instead of 66, or Matthew and Margaret had two sons named Samuel and lost the first. Since there is room for a child in 1866 and they went to the trouble to designate the child in the 1881 census with two names, the assumption is that LDS reference is correct as written and that there were two sons named Samuel.
