Subject: [ARIZARD-L] Nancy J. Black

I've been looking and looking at all my Black family information, and the only person I can come up with that might be Nancy's father is Abraham L. Black, son of Thomas and Mary T. Byler Black. He would have been about 10 years younger than Harriet Trimble Creswell Wren. He was born 1833 and died in the Civil War in 1864. So if they married, they conceived Nancy J. and he went off to war and he died before she was born. I'm not saying this is correct, just that it would be possible.
It seems strange to me that John Newton Trimble, having had a family with Mary Cooper and the children all raised when she died in March 1879, would have taken in a 14 year old niece when there must have been other relatives to care for her. But, he also had his first wife's mother and brother living with him and his second wife, so maybe not so strange.
The fact that Harriet Wren is listed in the Izard Co. Tax Records in 1861, 1865 and 1866 also makes it hard to believe she married a Mr. Black and had Nancy J. As far as I can tell, no one has found Harriet with a daughter named Nancy J. Black. Where did the information that Harriet was the mother originate from? Does anyone know.
