Notes for Lucinda Jane Black:

Lucinda Jane Black was reportedly full blood Cherokee Indian.  She was born in North Carolina in the Cherokee Indian Nation, likely near what is now the borders with South Carolina and Georgia.  Her sister Elvina was born in Georgia near the same location.  Lucinda's parents were Richard and Jane Black.  Other than the fact that they were born in North Carolina, there is very little known about them.  Lucinda's Indian name was Flower Of The Morning.  Her family evaded the great Cherokee Indian Removal of the 1830s, likely hiding in the mountains of Western North Carolina.  In the middle of the 1840s, well after the horrible "Trail of Tears" eipsode, the family migrated from North Carolina into Tennessee.  There are rumors that the family spent some time on Long Island in the Tennessee River near South Pittsburg, Tennessee; but that has not been confirmed.  There is another Long Island in the Tennessee River near Kingsport, Tennessee.  This island was a religious gathering location for the Cherokees, and is much closer to Bledsoe County, Tennessee where they finally settled for a while.  Lucinda met her husband James Sullivan in Bledso County near Pikeville, Tennessee.  There is no record of their marriage; but if they had an Indian wedding ceromony, as some suspect, then a marriage license would not have been issued.  Her sister Elvina married James Sullivan's older brother Isaac (Ike) Sullivan.  Both of these families moved to Warren County near McMinnville, Tennessee in the early 1850s.  They had several children there including our grandfather, John Duncan Sullivan, who was named for a neighbor.  Lucinda took care of her family during the Civil War in which her husband was a solider.  He ruturned home after the end of the war.  In the 1880s the family moved to the Bone Cave area of Van Buren County, Tennessee.  Both Lucinda and her husband died there in the middle 1890s.  There are no headtones to mark their grave sites; but that will soon be rectified.  Plots have been purchased in the beautiful Laurel Creek Cemetery near their final residence.  Headstones have been ordered and will be erected in June 2013. Note:  The headstones were installed at Laurel Creek in June 2013.  Later information determined that James and Lucinda were actually buried in Long Cemetery in Van Buren County, Tennessee.  Consequenty the headstones were moved to that location in May of 2015.
