Family Birth: Charles Black in 1901

On this day in 1901, my second cousin once removed was born in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio. His parents were Max Black and Catherine Prill. He had one brother, Walter, who was born 18 months after him.

Charles Black most likely knew his Pittsburgh-born grandparents, Charles and Mary Prill, who were also living in Toledo. They owned and operated a hotel called Prill's Hotel before Charles was born and stayed in the area until their deaths in 1920.

Charles married Nelly Kunzman on August 14, 1923, and they had two daughters. When he got married, he was working as a pricer for Walding, Kinnan and Marvin Company, a wholesale drug company. He retired from this company in 1963 as vice president and buyer, after 44 years with them.

Nelly died in 1989, and Charles died on March 12, 1996, in Riverside Hospital. He is buried in Ottawa Hills Memorial Park in Toledo.

If I have any Black cousins out there, I'd love to hear from you!
