BLACK, REV. JOHN G. - Rev. John G. Black, without doubt one of the oldest Methodist ministers to this section, died Tuesday evening at his late residence in New Carlisle of infirmities, having attained the ripe old age of 85 years.  The decedent many years ago held charges at Osborn, New Carlisle, Newson Chapel, Concord and at Tremont City, the latter place being where he served his first charge.  Rev. Black had been a resident of New Carlisle for nearly 25 years and only a few weeks ago celebrated his 85th birthday.  He had been failing in health for some months and peacefully slept away Tuesday evening from the infirmities of his advanced age.  He leaves three children, Miss Clara Black, J. W. Black, and William Black.  Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the New Carlisle Methodist church.  Burial will be made at New Carlisle cemetery.
