Book "Constalk Militia" mentions Alexander & William Source: "William Black and his Descendants"

ALEXANDER BLACK was born in Augusta County, Virginia, October 14, 1765. He joined the Colonial forces in the war of Independence but was not in active service during that period. At the age of twenty he crossed the mountains into Kentucky and lived at Strodes Station where he remained for three years, during which time he became a companion and friend of Daniel Boone. Strodes Station was a fort and trading post located two miles west of the present city of Winchester on the Lexington Pike. It has been recently marked by a monument erected by the D.A.R. of Clark County. On June 15, 1791 at the rapids of the Ohio (now Louisville) he was mustered in as a private into Capt. James Brown's company of mounted Kentucky volunteers. This company was part of the First U.S. Regiment commanded by Brig. General Charles Scott. It was in the service of the U.S. against the Wiau Indians of central Indiana.

On February 20, 1793 he married Jane Crockett of Bourbon County, a distant cousin of "Davey Crockett" the noted humorist and member of Congress from Tennessee. She was born in Augusta County, Virginia, January 3, 1770, daughter of James and Martha Gay Crockett, who were early settlers in the Calfpasture River valley in Augusta County. Her grandfather, Capt. Robert Watkins Crockett, Jr., was born in Ireland in 1709 and came to America in 1740. He was in Capt. John Wilson's Muster Roll in 1742, and served under James Patton in the French and Indian war. He died at Beverly Manor, Augusta County in 1746. Her father, James Crockett, came to Bourbon (now Clark) County, Ky. in 1786 and lived on a tract of land on Hancock Creek near where the Blacks lived. He was born in 1741 and died in Clark County in 1813.

ALEXANDER BLACK and wife lived on their farm in Clark County about two miles north of Strodes Station. He served in the army of General Wayne when Wayne scored his decisive victory over the Indians and succeeded in driving them from the northwest territory. In this campaign he was wounded in the face by an Indian arrow in the battle of "Fallen Timbers" fought Aug. 20, 1794 on the banks of the Maumee River near the present city of Toledo, Ohio. On March 12, 1806 he was commissioned Ensign in the 36th Regiment of the Militia of the State of Kentucky, by the Governor, Christopher Greenup. During his stay in Kentucky he had much trouble and law suits over the title to his lands. After several years of litigation over these titles, in which Henry Clay was his attorney, he sold his land in Kentucky. On April 19, 1809 he sold to Thomas Goff 104 acres on Strodes Creek and on March 2, 1813 he sold to Isaac Cunningham 50 acres on Hancock Creek. In the early spring of 1809 he came up into Ohio where, with his family, he settled on a tract of land in Champaign County, on the waters of Macochee Creek in the Mad River valley.

He entered at the Cincinnati land office, the N.W. 1/4 section 23, T5, R.12 Miami River survey, Champaign County, Ohio, under what is known as the Credit System; and as shown by the tract books, the first payment was made July 24, 1809, the second payment Feb. 27, 1811, the third payment June 13, 1812 and the final payment April 29, 1813. He purchased the S.W. 1/4 section 19, T5, R.13 under the same act and the first payment appears to have been made Dec. 11, 1811. The entry was completed Feb. 13, 1816 and the Patent issued June 11, 1816. He also purchased the S.E. 1/4 section 25, T5, R.13, under the same act, and the first payment made April 15, 1812, and the entry completed Feb. 13, 1816 and the Patent issued Aug. 14, 1816. (The original patent on the N.W. 1/4 section 23, T5, R.12, dated August 24, 1813 and signed by James Madison, is at this time, 1972, in the possession of Mrs. Raymond F. Hughes, 27 7 0 Observatory Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio. She is a sister of Howard C. Black, deceased.)

During the War of 1812 ALEXANDER BLACK was given a Captains Commission and organized a company of mounted militia known as minute men, who defended the frontier settlers against the attacks of the Indians. On August 18, 1812 he went with his company to the relief of Fort Findlay, in Hancock County, Ohio, which was then being besieged and succeeded in driving off the Indians. For his service in this war he was granted a warrant for one hundred and sixty acres of land. In the Champaign Logan County history of 1872 (Antrim's) is an article by Mrs. Sallie Moore in which she describes the uniform of this Militia Company and also other interesting facts of these fighting forefathers of ours, as follows: "About the time of the War of 1812 a company of young men was organized in Champaign and Logan Counties by Alexander Black. It was an independent company of home guards or minute men and was called a rifle company, each man being armed with a good trusty rifle gun, shot pouch, Powder horn, bullet molds, gunflints, etc. Each furnished his own amunition and was expected to hold himself in readiness at a minute's warning for any emergence, we at that time being the frontier settlement on the north, and exposed to danger from the Indians who might be prowling about in the neighborhood. The uniform of this company consisted of a black hunting shirt, trimmed with white all around the body, made as a loose coat or wrapper, reaching a little above the knees, and open in the front and fringed; then a large circular cape with collar fastening all together at the neck. The fringe was usually made of home made linen about one and one half inches wide, and sewing it on the garment and then raveling it out about half the width. Then a stout leather belt with large buckle in front, or some having a white belt, white pants and stockings. The hat was like one in fashion in the seventies, high crown with narrow rim. Each man had a white plume fastened to the left side of his hat. The feather was made by skillfully adjusting 'the white feathers of a goose around a ratan or stick long enough to reach to the top of the hat, carefully and firmly wrapping their with thread, and on top a tuft of red feathers, a bit of scarlet cloth or the scalp of a red headed woodpecker. The company was called together three or four times a year for muster or company drill, and you may be assured their mothers and sisters, their wives and sweethearts were proud of them when they saw them dressed up in their uniforms and marching under their gallant captain."

In the year 1818 Alexander built a seven room brick. house on his farm two miles south of West Liberty, along the road traversed by General Hull's army on its famous march to Detroit during the War of 1812. This was the second brick house built in Salem Township. The brick for it were made on his farm and a. man by the name of Whitus was the mason. Captain Black having learned the carpenter trade when a lad, did all the carpenter work himself. Considerable time and labor were required in the finishing of this house as all windows, doors and interior trimming had to be made by hand. All woodwork and moulding had to be planed out of native wood and special built planes for each particular kind of moulding. The roof was made of eighteen inch shaved red oak shingles. This original roof remained on the house for over fifty years. Before he had completed his new home, his log house which stood just south of the present brick house, burned down and destroyed all his personal belongings including his planes and carpenter tools. He had then to make all new tools before he could complete his new home. This house is now occupied by the writer at this present date, 1935.

Captain Black was a warm personal friend of General Simon Kenton, of pioneer fame in Ohio, they having lived neighbors for years. Like all the old Indian fighters he had no love for an Indian, as he had spent all his younger days on the frontier fighting them. He died at his home in Champaign County on June 16, 1854, at the advanced age of eighty nine. His wife, Jane, died of cholera on July 21, 1849. They were both charter members of the Muddy Run Christian Church (or Bethel Christian Church) located about one mile west of West Liberty. This church was formed in the year 1814 by a group of citizens who had come from Kentucky. These people were former members of the Presbyterian Church who had rebelled against a growing ecclesiasticism in the Presbyterian Church and had formed this "New Light" or Christian Church. This church was finally disbanded about 1840. Alexander Black and his wife, Jane, are both buried in the Baptist Cemetery at Kingscreek, Champaign County, Ohio. They had the following children:

30 Martha born June 2, 1794
31 William born February 19, 1796
32 James born February 8, 1798
33 Alexander born November 20, 1800
34 Sarah born January 11, 1803
35 John born July 11, 1805
36 Samuel C. born March 20, 1809
37 Harrison M. born December 26, 1812

- (Error - Alexander H. is his father, not grandfather!) SAMUEL CROCKETT BLACK, secretary of the South Dakota & Iowa Land & Loan Company, with headquarters in Mellette, was born on a farm in Champaign county, Ohio, on the 23d of September, 1849, and is a scion of one of the old and honored families of the Buckeye state, where his grandfather, Alexander H. Black, who was a native of Kentucky and of Scotch lineage, took up his residence in 1809, taking part in the early Indian wars and serving as captain of a company in the command of General Wayne, known to history as "Mad Anthony Wayne," by reason of his intrepid daring. In this connection Captain Black accompanied his doughty general on the march to the lakes and saw not a little of active service in conflict with the Indians. He became possessed of a large tract of land in Champaign county, and there passed the closing years of his life, while his son Samuel C., Sr., the father of the subject, also lived on this ancestral homestead and became a prominent and influential farmer and stock grower. He likewise was a native of Kentucky and died in Ohio, as did also his devoted wife, whose maiden name was Mary Ann Grant. They became the parents of nine children, while of the number five are living at the time of this writing. END

THE HISTORY OF CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, OHIO 502 - HISTORY OF CHAMPAIGN COUNTY. They appeared in such vast numbers, as apparently to cover the earth for miles, and if not well guarded, they would clear the corn-fields as they went along. They would suffer death rather than turn from their course; and would pass over houses and swim lakes, ponds and water-courses. They traveled due south, until they would reach the Ohio River, into which they would plunge and attempt to swim over ; here an immense number would lose their lives by drowning in the river, and those that got over alive would crawl upon the bank, and, after resting a short time, would resume the journey southward. This accounts for the necessity of levying a squirrel scalp tax.

Capt. Alexander Black, Moses McIlvain and others from Kentucky, settled on Macacheek and Mad River, in the northern part of Salem, in the spring of 1809; at that time James McPherson, called "Squalicee " by the Indians, (which means the red-faced man), was then living on Mad River, at or near the Kavanaugh farm, and there were several Indian families there at the time; among others, Capt. John Lewis. A chief had in his family a white woman, named 'lolly Kiser, who was taken prisoner when young, and raised with the Indians. She was highly esteemed by the whites, sixty years ago. The writer several times saw Molly Kiser riding through the woods or along a path in Salem Township, with several ponies and dogs along with her.

Alexander Black was a soldier and served in the army of Gen. Wayne, at the battle with the Indians on the 20th of August, 1794; he was an officer and served in the war of 1812, under Gen. Harrison.

On the 23d of August, 1880, on a visit to an aged friend, James Black, Esq., of Salem Township, the writer found the old man in his eighty-fourth year, weak and feeble in body and mind, but strong in honesty, honor and noble feeling. With the assistance of his obliging sons, John and James, he gave the following historical incidents. His father; Capt. Alexander Black, settled on Mad River, in Salem Township, in 1809. Judge McPherson, then an Indian trader, lived on what is now known as the Samuel Black farm. This point was first settled by a Frenchman named Deshicket, in 1794 ; he was probably the first resident white settler in what is now Champaign County. In the spring preceding Wayne's decisive battle, August 20, 1794, Deshicket resided near the Greenville treaty ground.

The first schoolhouse built in this neighborhood was built on the Samuel Black farm, about the year 1814. I did not learn the name of the first teacher. Robert Crocket taught the second term in that schoolhouse. Among the scholars who attended the first school in this house were : William, John, Samuel and James Kavanaugh, Moses McIlwain's children, Capt. Black's children and George Petty's adopted daughter.

The Relief of Fort Findlay (Tradition in the Black family) Source: "William Black and his Descendants" In the fall of 1812, after the surrender of General Hull and his army to the British, Governor Meigs, who then had his headquarters at Urbana, rode up one evening to see Capt. Black about raising his company of minute men, and going to the relief of Fort Findlay, which was then being besieged by the Indians. Capt. Black immediately sent his son, James, and his nephew, Cartmill Crockett, to notify the men of his company, each man to provide himself with a musket and powder and were instructed to mould a certain number of bullets and to come on horseback prepared for a forced march. They were to meet at the residence of Capt. Black at day break. With his company of seventy five mounted men he followed Hull's trace on his journey to Fort Findlay. When they came to a stream, north of what is now Bellefontaine, he instructed his men to let their horses, have all the water they would drink, as they would not stop again until they arrived at the fort. As this little band of men came mearer to the fort they saw an increasing evidence of Indians in the neighborhood, so the company was divided, and travelled single file about fifty yards apart on the flanking paths on either side of the main wagon road. He instructed his men to keep in this formation regardless of what might happen and not to stop for anything until they had reached the fort, as that was their principal objective. When they came to a stream of river they were to cross it as hurridly as possible and keep right on moving, as this was the most likely place the Indians would attack. In marching in this formation they succeeded in reaching the besieged fort without seeing a single Indian. Although Bateast with his tribe of six hundred Wyandotts lay concealed along the roadway. The Indians had concealed themselves along the main wagon road in preparation for an attack as the company passed through, but with the sudden appearance of men on either side of them their plan of attack was reversed, as they would be thrown on the defensive rather than the offensive, as they had not planned on such a course of action. Tecumseh accused Bateast of cowardice in allowing this company of men to pass through undisturbed. To which Bateast replied "Me know every man of them, they all men from Kentuck, and men from Kentuck no good for Indian." Upon arrival at Fort Findlay, Capt. Black established a picket line around the stockade. The ground had previously been cleared for several rods around this stockade, all trees and stumps had been cut off level with the ground, so no Indian could hide behind them. At dusk the officer in charge of the fort told Capt. Black he should place his picket men out in the timber, but Capt. Black told him that the Indians were watching every movement they made, and that his men were to remain in the open until dark and then advance their line into the edge of the forest under cover of darkness. The picket men were instructed to shoot at nothing unless they were positive that it was an Indian, as this was a signal to awaken the garrison. Peter Stipp, then a boy of sixteen, and George McCulloch were in the picket line about four rods apart, when during the night they heard a noise in front of them and both waited patiently until they could make out the outline of two Indians approaching on hands and knees near them. When the Indians were within a few feet of them they both fired almost simultaneously. It was later learned that one Indian was shot through the body, the other, who was the Indian Chief, Tecumseh, had a crease cut across his back by one of the bullets. Neither Indian uttered a cry, but Tecumseh quickly gathered up his companion and disappeared into the darkness before he could be captured. With the arrival of reinforcements to the besieged fort the Indians soon afterwards abandoned the siege and were driven northward to the British stronghold at Detroit.
