I know this is a long shot but hoping you still check ancestry and receive these messages! Would you please send me the info you mentioned above about the list of descendants? I have hit a dead end on my Posey line and have come across this post and several others concerning a Richard Posey with a son named William who married Eliza Baize. William Posey who married Eliza is my line but I have not been able to prove or find his parents or hers. Any info that's not just a guess would be very welcome!
I added Richard and Obedience has his parents with ??? marks in my tree so I can delete, hoping that it would pop up some definite connections. So far nothing has been linked directly to William from Richard by any documents.
William shows on the census as being born in TN but the ages very from census to census. I know your Richard and Obedience were in S.C, TN and AL, then MS so its possible. I just can't figure out why William would have stayed behind in AL and in Lauderdale County instead of Montgomery area if they are connected.
Thanks for any info from anyone who may be reading this so many years later!
