I have "Black" in my family and they are from Tenn. Unfortunately, "Black" is like "Jones", there are many. It is difficult to separate the lines as they all used the same first names. I descend from "John Black" and there are many of those. On my line, John had a daughter, Ann, who married Jesse Carmack. She was born in Georgia in the 1700's, but moved to Tenn and her descendants have been there for a few generations, then spread out. I was born there but live in Utah now.
