Death of Mrs. S. G. Black.

After an illness from a complication of diseases and a confinement of eighteen months the above named venerable mother of Gen. Geo. S. Black, of Floyd county, and mother-in-law of Mr. H. W. Cobb, our county treasurer, died at the residence of the latter, in this place, on Monday night at precisely 12 o’clock.  The deceased was born in South Carolina, on the Golden Grove creek, Greenville district, Jan. 11, 1791, where she was raised and married, soon after which she removed to Christian county, Ky., where she remained seven years.  She removed to Illinois territory and remained there one year, and thence went to Arkansas, and settled on Eleven Point river, where she remained until the death of her husband, after which she returned to her native district, making the entire trip from Arkansas to South Carolina on horseback.  In 1834 the deceased went to DeKalb county, Georgia. where she remained until 1839, and then came to this county, where she remained most of the time, though residing with her son, Gen. Black, in Floyd county, a part of the time.  The deceased had been a faithful member of the Baptist church for many years, and died peacefully, in the full fruition of a Christian life.
