George A. Black was born in Butler County, Penn., acquired a liberal academic course and soon engaged in teaching school. On the opening of the war, he enlisted in Company C, Eleventh Pennsylvania Reserves, and served three years; he read law with Gen. PURVIANCE, and was admitted September 25, 1865. He was a gentleman of excellent character, and soon developed a good legal mind. After practicing his profession in his native county for some time, he removed to the City of Kansas, Mo., where he practiced several years. He finally returned to his native county, somewhat enfeebled in health; he finally died of consumption.
Currently a resident of Burke, Virginia - I'm originally from the City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have been a student of the Pennsylvania Reserves since 1997 and thoroughly enjoy telling their story. By trade I'm a former IT Professional but presently working as a Letter Carrier for the United States Postal Service.
