Black, James (3)

Black, James (3), a Presbyterian minister, was born in Baltimore, Md., June 26, 1810. His parents removed to Cincinnati, O., in 1835. He entered the Miami University with a view to the medical profession, but, resolving to devote himself to the work of the ministry, he went to Hanover College, Ia., and subsequently graduated at the Indiana Theological Seminary. He was licensed by the Presbytery of Madison in 1840, and ordained by the Presbytery of Cincinnati the following year. His several fields of labor were as follows: Monroe and Mt. Carmel, 1846; Fourth Church, Cincinnati, 1854; Dick's Creek, 1855; Ninth Church, Cincinnati, 1859; Feesburg and Felicity, 1861; Moscow in 1870, where he remained until 1879. From this period his declining health prevented him from stated labor, though he preached occasionally, as opportunity offered and his strength allowed. He died in Cincinnati, July 5, 1881. Mr. Black's ministry was everywhere successful, especially in his Moscow and Cincinnati charges. He was the oldest member of the Cincinnati Presbytery, and greatly beloved by his fellow-presbyters. See (Cincin.) Presbyter and Herald, July 16, 1881. (W. P. S.)
