Rev. William Black, of Lovelaceville, Ky., a member of Mayfield Presbytery, died July 13. Brother Black was 77 years, 5 months and 9 days old. He was anxiously waiting the end. Rev. J. E. Edwards preached his funeral at his home before the burial. Brother Black left a wife and four children, all members of the church. His oldest son, R. W. Black, is a minister now living in Tennessee. Our church has lost a good man.
