5 of 5 Corrections to James Black Bio December 5, 2021
Reviewer: Rick McConville from [email protected]  
Just to improve:

1) Current bio as is notes six siblings but actually lists seven.
2) missing is actually the 8th sibling Barbara who is shown in the obituary as Barbara McConvile
3) so in total eight siblings and add Barbara to the list.
