Black Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Clark Co, OH. Sometime prior to 1814, Samuel Black gave three quarter an acre of ground for the use as a graveyard. This site was chosen by him and his brother, Andrew Black Sr. The first burials were that of Samuel Black on June 19, 1814 and Margaret Verdier on June 24, 1814. The last burial appears to have been Prudence Fuller in 1939.

Additional information on the Black Family. Andrew Black Sr is the earliest settler of Pike Twp, Clark Co, OH. He arrived from Virginia in 1805, cleared the land and built a cabin. In 1806, his wife and child arrived. In 1807, a brother, Samuel Black, arrived. The second known settler of Pike Twp is Adam Verdier who arrived in 1806.
