Famous Kin

Jack Black would appear to have a number of famous kin through his 3rd great-grandmother Eliza Ann Darling, wife of Noah Davis. She is said to be the daughter of Joseph Benedict Darling and his wife Nancy Ann Lacey. Joseph is said to be the son of Samuel Darling and his wife Elizabeth Benedict. Unfortunately I have not been able to find any reliable sources to support this claim.
