|2863||[All of this "minister" business is unproven and seems doubtful]Samuel Black was a minister of the Linville Creek Baptist Church in Rockingham Co., VA (in the Shenandoah Valley). He also founded a church at Alderson, Greenbriar Co., VA (now Monroe Co., WV). [Note - it was a different "Sam Black" associated with the Alderson church. That Sam Black died in 1899, much later than our Samuel Black]|
There is speculation that Samuel may be descended from Samuel Black (b. 1700 Ireland, d. 1770). This Samuel Black, although born in Ireland, was of Scotch extraction. He was educated in Edinburg, and licensed to preach in Glasgow, Scotland. He was a minister in the Presbyterian Church (the church of Scotland.) He came to America in 1735. He was a missionary to Mountain Plains Church from 1743-1747 in Montgomery, VA. Samuel and his wife had 3 sons: (1) John m. June Alexander. They had at least 8 sons and 2 daughters. Two of the sons were in the war of 1812 (one son, Matthew, died during service); five sons went to Ohio; Susan went to Missouri; Mary went to the Pacific coast; Alexander stayed in Blacksburg, VA (2) William, who gave land for the town of Blacksburg, VA, incorporated in 1748. He moved to Albermarle Co. in 1800 (3) Samuel, who is surmised to be the father of "our" Samuel. Is not documented.

|Black, Samuel (I1169)
August immigrated to the US in 1868, settling in Omaha on June 13. He was first employed by the Union Pacific Railroad on a ferry boat on the Missouri River. It is believed that while he was working for the Union Pacific, he was present when the golden spike was laid completing the first transcontinental railroad at Promontory Point, Utah in 1869. In 1872, Anna Christina Olive Frostrom immigrated to the US with her mother, brother, and sisters. Her family settled on a farm in Saunders County, NE.
August became a farmer. After he and Olive Anna were married, they made their home on a farm in Mariposa precinct, where August built the farmhouse. The farm was located about 3/4 mile from the farm of Olive's parents. Like most of the farmers in the area, August hauled his grain at harvest time 40 miles to the railroad, often finding it necessary to fix the wooden bridges over the various streams he crossed.
August was a Republican and one of the first members of the Independent Party. He and Olive Anna both belonged to the Baptist Church in Weston. After August died, his son Roland inherited the home farm. In the fall of 1913, Olive Anna moved to Weston where she lived until 1941. She then moved to Wahoo where she died a year later. She was a semi-invalid for seven years before her death. She was known to have a strong faith in her religion.

Christian was a tailor and a laborer.
|Christianson, Christian (I0908)
John Christian (Christian John) was a tailor in his native Sweden. He left Sweden for the US on May 8, 1869. Christina and their four children followed three years later, leaving Sweden on Oct 19, 1872. At the time that John's family joined him, he was part of a railroad crew, which built a railroad bridge at St. Joseph, Mo. He had saved up enough money to buy a farm and the family moved to Saunders County, NE. They purchased a farm from a Mr. Benson in Chapman precinct and John became a farmer. The family lived on that farm from 1872 to 1881; their two youngest children were born there.
The Frostroms suffered the usual hardships common to all early pioneers. The house on the farm had two rooms. One room was a dugout with a dirt floor. John made the bed for that room with 10-12 inch pine boards. The mattress was filled with straw. The bed was painted green, and looked like a box sitting on legs. The other room had a lumber floor, a door and two windows. The family carried water from a creek located half a mile south of their house. Their nearest farm market wwas in Ashland. Initially, John had just one piece of farm equipment, a tool he called a header. Christina occasionally walked 9 miles to Wahoo, carrying butter and eggs from the farm, which she sold. She then would walk back to the farm with groceries she had purchased.
During these years, Indians occasionally roamed around the countryside, not bothering the white settlers. On one occasion, John and Christina were visiting a cousin, and had left the four oldest children alone on the farm. Some Indians stopped at the farm, and the children were frightened by their presence. The children were relieved when the Indians were friendly and just wanted some food. The children gave them some supplies and the Indians went on their way.
John and Christina had followed the Lutheran faith in Sweden. In 1874, a Baptist church was organized in Weston and they joined a few years later. In 1881, the Frostroms purchased and moved to a farm previously owned by Frank Staats, and thehey bought an additional 40 acre tract of railroad land. This farm was a little closer to Weston and Wahoo. They lived there until 1906. Then, after a short visit with two of their daughters and their families in Missouri, they built and moved to a house in Weston.
John and Christina always spoke Swedish to each other and their family. They observed their 69th wedding anniversary and died within a short time of each other in 1931 at ages 96 and 95.
