"We hear with much sorrow that Elder James Black passed away on the evening of April 21st, 1886. Brother Black is well known to almost all the older brethren."

"He was one of the first to advocate in Ontario the primitive Gospel, and has been one of the most active and faithful preachers for about 50 years, not only was our departed brother loved as a preacher, but he was esteemed as an upright man, a man who practiced what he preached."

"His life has been a blessing to many who through him have learned the way of life.

"He know rests from his labors, and his works do follow him. He was 89 years of age. ~ J.C.Whitelaw"

"Christian Worker" magazine, February 1886, page 3."

~ Elder James Black was a Canadian pioneering evangelist with "churches of Christ/disciples of Christ". He spent most of his time in Southwestern Ontario encouraging congregations. He was a well respected leader amongst the evangelists of his day, and people listened to his solid advice.
