      Alzada Kartchner, born 1911 at Pacheco, Bravos, Chih.,  Blessed 1 Jan

      BLACK.


      From a tribute book made about David P. Black and his family by his children in 1978:
      His story:
      I Alvin K. Black, was born November 28, 1911 in Colonia Diaz, Chihuahua, Old Mexico.  The fifth child of David Patten Black and Elzada Kartchner Black, known as Dave Black and Zade.  I had two brothers; Arch and Dee and eight sisters.  Mother and her five children came out of Old Mexico when I was still a babe in arms, and went to Blanding, Utah.  Six younger sisters were born in Blanding and I always wanted  a baby brother.  Each time mother said she was going to get me a baby brother, another sister would come along.  When the third one came I didn't even want to see her, but later in life they became very special to me.

      When I was five years old I tried to head off our horse, Old Nell, from running through a gate, which nearly cost me my life.  The doctor pronounced me dead, but Mother insisted that she saw me move.  I have carried the scars all my life, around one eye and down the side of my face.  This accident prevented me from starting school until I was eight.  I graduated from High School in Blanding when I was 21 years old due to starting school late.  I was always interested in all kinds of athletics, taking the district championship in track and tying for state when I was in High School.

      I then went to Carlisle, six miles north of Monticello and worked for Joe Adams, farming.  While working for Uncle Joe, I met Beula Bailey, as their ranch was a mile and a half on down the creek.  We were married Nov. 13, 1933 in the Salt Lake Temple.  In 1934, a son came to bless our home.  We named him Drexel.  Him being the 13th grandchild on both sides of the family, and on Dec. 13th a beautiful red-headed daughter came to us, we named her MelRae.  We always felt like 13 was a lucky number for us. 

      Later we were blessed with two other daughters; Peggy Arvay and Penny Jean.  Then another little boy, Oren Clayton, came to bless our circle, but we only got to keep him ten and a half months, and the Lord took him back.  Later we had two more beautiful daughters; Laurel and Lorraine.  We have 24 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.  I was always in farming on Uncle Joe's ranch and later for myself.  In 1952, I sold out and moved to Mesa, Arizona on account of Beula's health.  There I worked for National Gypsum.  I retired in May 1973 and started spending the summers in Monticello.

      I have always served in the Scouting program, wherever I went.  We raised six children and have a special Daughter-in-law: Patricia Judkins Black and five nice sons-in law.  With the 24 grandchildren and three great grandchildren, it make a total of 39 living and one dead.  I feel the Lord has been good to me, and I pray I can endure to the end.  I love my family and Church.

      Alvin K Black

      Alvin K. Black, the son of David P. Black and Elzada Kartchner, was born November 28, 1911, in Colonial Diaz, Chihuahua, Old Mexico.  He was the fifth of eleven children, three boys and eight girls.  His youngest sister died at the age of six.

      When he was two years old they moved from Old Mexico to Blanding, Utah.  Here he spent his childhood and school days.

      He was very active in sports, especially track and basketball.  His father, David P. Black, having two wives and 22 children, taught them all the meaning of hard work at an early age.

      After schooldays he went to work for his brother-in-law, Joseph Adams, on a farm six miles north of Monticello, Utah.  Here he met and on November 13, 1933, married Beula Bailey of Monticello in the Salt Lake Temple.

      They were blessed with seven children, two boys and five girls.  The youngest boy, Oren Clayton, died at the age of ten months in 1944.

      Their early married life was spent farming at Carlisle. Six miles north of Montiecllo.  However, Alvin lists his occupation as the jack of all trades.  Farming for his brother-in-law, and later for himself, carpentry, cement finish, for Gallagar, Inc., where he poured and finished all the cement for the big uranium mill in town, which was the industrial backbone of the town for many years.

      While in Monticello he served as instructor for the Elders Quorum and Assistant Scoutmaster for 4 years and Scoutmaster for one year.

      In 1952, after a temple excursion to the Mesa temple it was decided to move.  On June 10, 1952, the Black family landed in Mesa.  Hot!  It was hotter than blazes, but it grows on you.

      Here he worked for first Darners Motors, second, Farmers Builders Supply, Third, Gold Bond, Inc, makers of gypsum products.

      Alvin is able to enjoy all his children and grandchildren here in the valley.  Drexel Blalck, Rae Starkey, Peggy Starks, Penny Smith, Laurel Sammons, Lorraine Robinson,plus eleven grandchildren. [1]
