     Theodore Black was born on 3 April 1847, son of John Black and Catharine Waldon, in West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana.2
     He also is reported to have been born in April 1845 in Louisiana.3

     The only Theodore Black I could find in the 1850 census was Theadore A. Black, age 5, living in District 14, Cape Girardeau, Missouri with what appear to be his parents: William Black age 39, and Ama Black, age 38, both of whom were born in North Carolina. All were enumerated on 20 Sep 1850.4

     Theodore, 27, married Mollie D. Turner, 19, daughter of George Stovall Turner and Margaret F. Staples, on 17 December 1874 at Pike County, Missouri.5

     Theodore Black died on 30 November 1919 at age 726 and was buried in Eolia Cemetery, Eolia, Pike County, Missouri.6

     Belle Golden Blackman was born circa 1852 in Mississippi. The 1880 census has her born in Louisiana.1,2
     She was also known as Isabelle.5

     Belle and Sumpter Turner obtained a marriage bond on 24 September 1869 in Orleans Parish, Louisiana.1,6

     There is a voided marriage record for a Sumpter Turner and Georgia Malone in Noxubee County, Mississippi. It was voided because returned and cancelled 12 Sep 1910. I don't quite know what to make of this, but perhaps Belle had died and he started to marry again precipitately.7

     I cannot find any death/burial information for her on Find A Grave as of 6 Feb 2021.

     He also is reported to have been born circa 1776 in Tennessee.3

     Isaac married Sally W. Hanna, daughter of John (L) Turner and Elizabeth Bailey, on 23 November 1836 in Sumner County, Tennessee, with N. B. (Nelson Bailey) Turner, her brother, as bondsman and John Wiseman officiating.1,4

     Isaac Bledsoe died before 1860 because I cannot find him anywhere on Find a Grave or the census as of 28 Jun 2021. I looked for him with his son, Anthony C. Bledsoe, but Anthony was enumerated in 1860 in Van Buren, Newton County, Missouri without his father.
