In 1880 he is living with his wife Magdalene (nee ?Keeney) at Albany NY 2nd ward. An Edward Pointer was christined June 30, 1837 at All Saints Leighton Buzzard Church, in Bedford England as son of Edward and Hannah Pointer ~ do not know that this is my Edward. At any rate, Edward Pointer 1834-1906 is found in 1860 at Marcellus NY (Onondaga County) living with James and Mary Smith both born about 1830; also there in 1865.

Edward Pointer ("Porter") also found 1900 and 1905 at Bath NY (Steuben County); where he died June 1906. Edward Pointer 1834-1906 enlisted from Syracuse NY via Elmira in April 1861 with Co H 12th Infantry Reg NY as 1st Sgt and mustered out May 1863 at Elmira NY (Chemung Co). He then enlisted in 1863 with Co A 15th Calvary Reg NY and was full Lt 2nd class effective March 7, 1865; he then transferred to Co L 2nd Provisional Calvary Reg NY in June 1865 and mustered out on August 9, 1865 at Louisville, Kentucky. Note: I found records that said he was Sgt in Co A 5 NY Calvary. He is listed as Lieutenant Co A 15 NY Cavalry per his tombstone. Lt. Edward Pointer buried (Plot G-9-26) at Bath National Cemetery at Bath NY (Steuben Co); he died June 14th, 1906 at the Soldiers and Sailors Home there. He served under Capt. George W. Cole and Col. Ezra L. Walrath. An Edward Pointer, infantryman and calvalry man, of the Civil War received bounty lands (spelled as Edward Painter ~ also have found as Poynter and Paynter) in 1870-74 for Lot 15, Cicero NY (Onondaga Co)...do not know that he lived there or took monetaries instead or perhaps sold.

I visited Lt Edward Pointer's gravesite July 2003.

Thanks to LINDA Z. O'HALLORAN, webmaster for Schuyler Co NY for all of her support, input, and direction in pinpointing and finding my White and Pointer ancestors. THANK YOU LINDA so very much!! AND, Thanks to RAYMOND W LeMAY III, Chaplain, SUVCW Camp Williard #154 of Albany NY, who helped me pinpoint Edward Pointer's military history, giving me direction and support. The "fraternity, charity, and loyalty" of our military people is the best! Thank you Chaplain for also sending me Lt Edward Pointer's pension application (can order military and pension records).

I have found an **ANNE G PAINTER 1835-1914 (AR 1892 Ship Umbria) buried Ridgeway Cemetery, Popular Ridge, Scipio/Town of Venice at Cayuga County, NY; who arrived 1892, whereas my Annie Pointer arrived 1871, and Edward Pointer arrived in 1859. There is an Anne G Painter also listed in another Onon Co NY cemetery as Anne G Evans with same dates, as wife of William! This particular "Anne" may be the wife of Lt. Edward Pointer (1834-1906) or kin. Was she an Evans or a Gibbs or Galloway? My *Annie Poynter is found at the Howard Chase family nearby (Ledgyard NY) in 1880 along with a Mr. Armistead (see notes below); then in 1881 an Annie Poynter born 1858 (same year as the other) is in Ontario Canada living as a clerk with the Gibbs family along with a William Evans who worked there.

There was an Evans photo place in Tompkins along with Hattie E Evans. I also found a William and Louisa and child, Anna Lou in another county, the child being born 1857, coincidentally. I have found an Edward Pointer age 60 born 1836 who arrived May 2nd 1896 (Ship Lucania). An Charles F Pointer also arrived 1896 age 39, born 1857. An Eleanor Painter arrived age 64 born 1850 onto Hoboken NJ. My grama Anna Louise White Teeter, as daughter of Anna Elizabeth Pointer White, was born 1899 Enfield NY and is there when she was age 6, along with some Pointers, a Joshua (Joseph) E who married a Spicer and family, to his include mother, Anna (possibly Anne G Painter aka Hanna).

Per 1880 census for NYS, there is an Edward Pointer age 23, born 1857 and wife, Emily b 1860, with a brother George age 15 and sister-in-law, Nellie Richards born 1868, all at Brooklyn NY 17th Ward, Kings Co. And then, there is Elizabeth H. Poynter b 1864 as daughter of Mary born England 1835 living at Brooklyn NY. In this particular family, there are also: Emma E born 1855, Francis T born 1857, and Charles W born 1860. Per 1880 (NYS), there is an *Annie Poynter born 1858 who is nursemaid to the Howard and Eliza Griffen Chase family at Ledgyard NY (Cayuga Co) who appears to be my great grama ~ this my Annie Elizabeth Pointer White 1858-1939.

My great grampa *Charles Wm White (1847-1923) found 1860 age 13 in Enfield NY living (as helper) with Hiel F/T Havens 1822-1908 and wife, Louisa 1829-98 (Havens buried Rolfe Cem, Enfield NY); as possible kin to them. His grampa, James White md Catherine M and some of their children and grandchildren carried H (?Hiram) as the middle name. Note: Charles Wm White grew up and married the daughter of an Edward Pointer, Anne Elizabeth Pointer 1858-1939; Charles and Elizabeth Pointer White are buried (along with a grandchild) at Inlet Valley Cemetery (Tompkins Co) ~ no tombstones.

AN IMPORTANT DOCUMENT follows for my Great Grampa FRANK E BLACK 1863 OH - 1927 CA, RR Conductor, who married MARGUERITE A CURRENT 1869 IN - 1932 CA who had my Grampa CLINTON E BLACK 1886 OH - 1973 CA:

"An Historical Story of the State's Marvelous Growth from its Earliest Settlement to the Present Time", by Prof. J. M. Guinn, A.M., author of A History of Los Angeles and Vicinity, history of Southern California, Secretary and Curator of the Historical Society of Southern California, Member of the American Historical Association, Washington, D.C. Also containing biographies of well-known citizens of the past and present. The Chapman Publishing Co. Chicago IL 1905

FRANK E. BLACK (pages 1104 and 1105): The personality of FRANK E. BLACK has won for him many friends, while his business ability has given him a competence among the the citizens of Tulare Co CA. Liberal, broad-minded and enterprising, he takes a keen interest in the public affairs of the community, and at the same time gives his attention to the advancement of his own welfare. A native of Ohio, he was born near Maxville, Perry County on July 19, 1863. He was reared in the home of his maternal grandfather, HENRY BLACK, who with his five sons, served in the Sixty-second Regiment Ohio Infantry during the Civil War, one son dying in service.

FRANK BLACK'S education was received through the medium of the public schools, which he attended for a short time, but became dependent upon his own efforts while still a lad. When sixteen years of age he secured a place as section hand, then became a brakeman on the Ohio Central Railroad, September 26, 1884, his run being between Bucyrus, Corning, Columbus and Toledo. In the spring of 1885 he was employed in the same capacity on the Pittsburg, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad, between Fort Wayne IN and Crestline OH. He remained with that company for six years, when in 1891, he came to California and secured employment with the Southern Pacific Railroad Company, as a brakeman, working out of Tulare. In June 1894, he was promoted to conductor, running out of Fresno and November 1, 1901, he took his present run, which is between Portersville and Mendota, going twice over the road each day, a distance of two hundred and thirteen miles traveled. He is a very successful railroad man, stands high with the officials, and enjoys the confidence and esteem of the traveling public. He has been in the work for twenty years and has never had an accident.

In Fort Wayne Indianna, MR. FRANK E. BLACK was united in marriage in 1885 with MARGUERITE A. CURRENT, a native of that vicinity, and the daughter of Sylvester S Current, who was employed in the car shops of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company for thirty-eight years, when he retired from active duties. Mrs. Black was brought up in Fort Wayne, where she was educated. They have one child living, CLINTON ELLSWORTH BLACK.

MR. BLACK [Frank] owns a stock farm on White River, thirty-five miles from Portersville, which is their mountain home. He was made a Mason in Portersville Lodge No. 303 and belongs to the Portersville Chapter, R.A.M., of this place, and Visalia Commandery, K.T. He is a demitted member of the Knights of Pythias and a membe5r of the Order of Railroad Conductors No. 404, of Kern City, and politically is a stanch Democrat." END of said historical biography for Frank E Black.

*** FRANK/LIN ELLSWORTH (CHURCH)BLACK was the grandson of Henry Black, b 1809, from PA (d 1879) who married a Susannah Carey from DE (d 1892) and had 11 or 12 children who lived in Perry Co OH and then went onto Ada Ohio Hardin County about 1864. Four of their sons were Civil War veterans; another Avery died in the War. They had 4 daughters, Rachel who married James Firestone (s/o Matthew and Ann), Elizabeth d 1874 who married John C Sleichter d 1879 (s/o George and Phoebe), Matilda who married James Davis, and Mary Jane who died age 1 year in 1854. There were several sons, beginning with William Black. At any rate, my great grampa Frank E Church Black was half-brother to Edward (Chas E) Sleichter born 1872 OH - 1945 CA (s/o John C and Elizabeth Black Sleichter) and his (Ed's) wife Minnie J who was d/o of John and Louisa St Mary Canaday/Kennedy). Ed and Minnie went onto CA and had a son Ray W 1902-70; Ed worked for the railroad as a brakeman with my great grampa and his son worked with the gov't during WW II. See AUNGST file for more.

Margaret A Current Black (w/o Frank/lin Ellsworth Black) was the daughter of Sylvester Sylvanus Current 1833 OH 1906 IN (GAR and teacher who also worked for the Penn RR) who married Alice A West 1840 OH - 1876 OH. Alice was the daughter of Clement West b 1794 NY and Rhoda (Johnston or? Johnson) West b 1812 NY who were in IN in 1860 from OH and in 1870 had moved onto MI (Clement was the son of Clement Sr, a Rev. Soldier born Dutchess Co NY in 1763 who applied for his AP in 1832 at OH. They came to OH from PA and NY.

The Fotos Plus file has data accompanying pictures of the Black and other families. Also see the Aungst file. Franklin E Black who married Margaret A Current had my grampa, an only child, Clinton E Black b 1886 OH. Frank/lin Black was born Frank E Church who was raised by his maternal grampa Henry Black and took the family name of Black after 1880 or so. I have Frank Black's marriage certificate that occurred 1885 at Ft Wayne IN to Maggie Current, with her father being witness. I also have Frank Black's death cert showing his father as James Black with no mother listed. The 1840 census for Perry Co OH Monday Creek shows Henry and wife and 4 children (2 females; 2 males), so there could have been a James Black born to Henry and Susanna about 1838. Or, Elizabeth Black who was the d/o Henry and Susanna firstly married James S Church (s/o Augustus and Margaret Neeley Church) who enlisted in 1864 and died in the Civil War and later married John Sleighter; or Ben F Church. At any rate Frank E Church Black and Eddie (Chas E) Sleighter (Sleister/Sleichter) b 1872 were raised by their grandparents, Henry and Susanna Carey Black.

Grampa Clinton Ellsworth Black 1886 OH 1973 CA (described further on) was a Baptist. Clinton E Black was born at Ada Ohio, Harden County to Frank E Black born 1863 OH who died 1927 at Ocean Beach, San Diego CA (railroad conductor) and wife, Margaret A Current Black born 1869 New Haven City (Adams Township) Allen County IN (died 1932 at San Diego CA). Margaret A Current Black was the daughter of Sylvester Sylvanus Samuel Current born 1833 OH PA PA (s/o Matthew) who married 1858 Alice A West Current b 1840 OH d 1876 IN (d/o Clement West born 1794 NY and wife, Rhoda Johnston West b 1812 OH or NY). Sylvanus Current remarried Caroline D Barney (kin to Harvey Stouder born 1815 who married ?Elizabeth Rogers). Sylvanus and Carrie (Caroline) Barney Stouder Current had one child, Harry S Current in 1880. Carrie had one or two children by a first marriage (Oscar) and/or perhaps a Kyle. These folks were mostly Baptist. Margaret Current Black had siblings: a brother, William H Current b 1859 who married Mary Thomas, Harry S born 1867, and Charles S born 1863, to include Annie May (Mrs W A Dosh ~ the Aunt Doty who introduced Clinton E Black to Ophelia M Robacker), as well as their half-brother Harry S Current born 1880. William A Dosh died 2/11/1937 age 75, at Fremont OH (spouse of Anna May Curren/t). Another child of Sylvanus and Alice West Current: John age 7 per 1870. Aunt Doty and husband adopted a daughter, Elizabeth who became a teacher.

1860 Wells Co IN Jefferson/Bluffton: Sylvanus Current 27, Alice 19, and William H age 1. They live next Clement and Rhoda Johnston West.

1870 Allen Co IN Ft Wayne 6th ward: Sylvanus Currants (Current) 34 b OH and Alice 25 b OH along with children, William 10 b IN, Samuel 8, John 7, Anna 2, Maggie 8/12.

FRANKLIN (Frank) ELLSWORTH BLACK, born 1863 Ohio (died 1927 San Diego CA), married MARGARET/MARGUERITE (Maggie) A CURRENT in 1885 at Allen County, IN (born 1869 IN died 1932 San Diego CA)(my great grandparents). NOTE: My great grampa, Frank E Black worked for the Union AND Southern Pacific Railroad (conductor), and was a land patentee ~ as well as the Currents (carpenters and railroad men) and the Aungsts and the Robackers. The Robackers also married into the Sliechter families.

I find Franklin E Black at Tulare Co CA per 1905 and 1908 ~ appears he was there in 1891. Records: Frank E Black, at Citrus, Escondido 3rd ward, San Diego CA in 1920 (Frank, a farmer, and son, Clinton, a sheet metal worker and as widower, with 3 children). In 1900, Frank (railroad conductor) and wife and son Clinton age 14, at Fresno CA. In 1910, the Black family is at Canama, Clackamus County OR. My Frank E Black's son, Clinton Elsworth Black was born at Ada Ohio, Hardin Co. in 1886 and died 1973 at California (his parents also died there). Clinton E Black (grampa) took his three motherless children in 1919 from Oregon City OR to Escondido, San Diego CA. Also, grampa Clinton Black was related to a Harry and Grace Black of California and nephew of Ed Sleister (sp), grandson of Henry and Susannah Carey Black, of Harden Co OH.

CLINTON ELSWORTH BLACK 1886-1973 (my grampa) was born at Ada OH Harden County; he married May 1, 1912 at Oregon City, OR Clackamus County, OPHELIA* MAY ROBACKER 1892-1919 of Upper Sandusky OH Wyandot Co and SD; William Harvey Current (1859 IN - 1935 IN) was witness to the marriage.

Elisa was the d/o Robert and Jane Wilson Crunkilton; and Robert was the son of Joseph Cronkleton of OH. John Aungst was born 1838 Belleville OH and lived at Crane OH Wyandot County; son of Richard and Elizabeth Meyers Aungst. Mattie was the biological d/o James Aungst and Martha J Lemley whom John Aungst adopted along with his wife, Eliza (Crunkilton). Martha J Lemley was d/o Gottlieb Lemley and wife whose maiden name was Grise.

Samuel J Robacker was the son of George J Robacker (who emigrated 1837 or earlier; 1831, from Weingarten Germany and Bremmen; 1816-94, of Erie Co OH, Sandusky City) and Sarah Eckerts Robacker (1820-83), from OH and Monroe Co PA. Samuel was brother to a John born 1847 and others (George, etc.), and he was a dye and cleaner owner as well as manager of a grocery store in Portland OR. In 1900, he is found at Ft Wayne IN with his wife, Mattie Aungst Robacker and children, Avery and Ophelia Robacker. Lizzie Crunkilton Aungst was the daughter of Robert C Crunkilton 1814-95 and Jane Wilson 1815-1906 from PA and MD, of Wyandot County OH.

Ophelia Robacker Black (w/o Clinton) had a brother, Avery Winfield Robacker 1889-1955 who md 1914 Anna Laura Reardon 1889-1985 (d/o William who married a Miss Fallon) ~ Anna died at Los Angeles CA; buried Oregon with her husband. I am named after her; also have her wedding ring. In her Will, Anna Laura Robacker lists John Bowman as executor, Dorthy Rupert (niece to Anna Laura Reardon Robacker), my mother, and others. Avery and Anna are buried Oregon City OR. I have a photo of Avery Robacker. Ophelia Robacker Black's picture is on my home page. Ophelia J Crunkilton DeJean was wife of T C DeJeaN and had son Avery W DeJean; his wife and son both died 1878. This Ophelia was sister to Elizabeth Crunkilton Aungst. My great grama, Mattie Aungst Robacker named her two children Avery and Ophelia.
