      COMMENTS: John Black of Salem has been assigned wife Susanna, by confusion with the non-existent John Black of Charlestown (see JOHN BLACK in Phantom File). Clarence Almon Torrey, in his article on the many marriages of Elizabeth Black, has some other useful comments on the family of John Black (but includes this incorrect information on Susanna) [TAG 17:135-36].
      In the 1637 grant of marsh and meadow, Black was recorded with a household of four; this accords nicely with the known family of John Black, his wife, and daughters Elizabeth and Persis.
      John Black "removed to Salem" about 1636 and was a proprietor and juryman and was "one of the planters at Jeffrey's Creek as of about 12 May 1640, per "The Pioneers of Massachusetts".
      I have also heard he was a tavern proprietor in Salem town.
