    • !NOTES: In 1840, Thomas Fletcher built the first home in the area of Black Jack, a log house on Old Hallsferry road, just a short distance from the intersection with Parker road. James C. Richardson, one of the early pioneers and chief landowners in the north county area had built a big tobacco barn in the vicinity a few years earlier, and in 1842, the barn was purchased by Joseph L. Hyatt, who converted it into a residence. This became the second home in the new community.
