James Black (c.1800 - ):
[ Doubtful relevance ]
Little is known of James Black, except for his large oil painting, the 'City of Armagh', which was presented to Armagh town commissioners in 1870. He painted shop signs and some local portraits. According to the Belfast Mews-Letter of the 10th of February, 1829, James Black was returning home one evening, past a butcher's, when he interfered in a row between the butcher and his wife. He was struck on the head with a cleaver, and died a few days later.
