John Black
Facts and Events
Name John Black
Gender Male

The William (Bill) Black Interview has the following quote on John:

  • Uncle John Black and Bill were best of friends. They went all over Scotland together. John knew everyone so they were able to get into places that were off limits after hours. They even took a bike ride and stopped in different pubs where they had sing alongs. Knowing Bill was an American he had to start all the singing. Many times Uncle John and Bill put the bikes on a trolley instead of trying to ride home.

John was not listed in the 1901 census for his family so he must have been born after 1901. I look forward to the release of the 1911 UK census for further confirmation on him from a primary source.
