      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.

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.
