Notes for H
I have not been able to document Harrison Posey's parents and his connection to Charles County, Maryland. The name was originally Poschet. [Lucinda Eggleston Rohrs, 3301 Oakside Ct., Columbia, MO 65203; 573-234-2975;]

Marriage record from Russell County, KY, 1826-1880 [From Russell County Kentucky Lookup by Malissa Robertson]

WILLIAM C. VANDIKE and PEGGY POSEY. Bond dated 8 May 1829. Bondsman was HARRISON POSEY. Bond signed by WILLIAM POSEY. Marriage date was 9 May 1829.

From Russell County Kentucky Lookup--Ms. Debra K. Zimmerman:

"Harrison Poesy (this is how it was spelled) in the 1830 Russell census:

one male 50-59
one male 15-19
two males 5-9
one female 30-39
one female 10-14"

1840 United States Census, Russell County, Kentucky

#9 Harrison Posey 2 males 15 & under 20 1 male 60 & under 70
1 female 20 & under 30 1 female 50 & under 60

4 persons in family are employed in agriculture

[The two males 15 and under 20 should be Steela Augusta Posey and Green Harrison Posey. Evidently Harrison Posey and wife, Lavina Vandike, are still living].

From Russell County Kentucky Lookup--Malissa Robertson:

"I was not able to find a will for your Harrison but have found this:

Thomas Shaw, Inventory. Russell County. Wesley Wilkerson and HARRISON POSEY have been appointed by the Russell County Court to appraise the Estate of Thomas Shaw, deceased, and was sworn in by Preston Shepherd, JPRC. this 29 August, 1851.

This roll only goes up to 1854, so probably if Harrison did leave a will he probably died after 1854 and that is why it isn't in here."

[It is possible that this might be a son of Harrison Posey or a nephew].

[Harrison Posey does not show up in the 1850 U.S. Census for Russell County, Kentucky].

Notes for L

William Vandike 1 male 30 & under 40
