  • Notes 
    • A contemporary of Zachariah Posey in Rutherford County, Tennessee. His birthplace is not certain as descendants disagreed when giving information to the census taker. It is likely that he was born in either Georgia or South Carolina. He might have been the William H. Posey who was a son of the William Posey of Spartanburg and Lowndes County, Alabama, for there was such a son who disappeared from the family records early. His identity has not been established.
      Barbara is buried at Beasley Cemetery where perhaps her husband is also.
      The first Posey's landed at the Jamestown Colony.
