    Notes 
    • Research of Linda Smith Cheek--Francis Posey b. 1730 MD d. Dec 1787 Edgefield District SC

      John and Francis Posey in Orange Co NC 1762\63 South Side Rocky River

      Will of Francis Posey 5 December 1787 prov 11 January 1788 Wife Milly
      Issue: Absolum Posey m. Jane he d. 1804 Union SC Phebe Hollingsworth m. Benjamin Hollingsworth, Nancy Smith m. 1st Rucker Smith 2nd Rucker Mauldin, Saley Martin--a daughter Seley Martin m. John Atkins he died 1806 a young man in Pendleton District SC. Jugay Sheriff m. Thomas Sheriff-- Suckey Posey, Mary Posey supposedly married *Harmon Smith s/o Christopher Smith Benjamin Posey--Martha Posey m. *Joshua Smith--Farr Posey when of age--Nathan Sims exor of the estate of Farr Posey 1836 lands to William Smith--Union Co SC--Susannah Posey m. *Hampton Smith--All three of the above *Smiths are supposed to be brothers. Edgefield District, SC

      At this time I (Linda Smith Cheek) believe that the wife of Francis Posey was Mildred Miller his step-sister and d/o his-step father MILLER from Charles Co Maryland (LC). No records of Milly Posey are found after the death of her husband Francis Posey and it is likely that she married a 2nd time.
