Poston Surname Misc. Notes:

By Ann G. in Lockhart Texas....Most of my notes have been sent to me in message boards, emails, regular mail, and from documents of my ancestors, also I spent yrs going to the Historical Society in Darlington County, SC and Chesterfield County, SC. Not to mention the cemetaries I dragged my family to. I hope some of my notes will help others in their search.

Note: Need any and all help trying to find our Samual Poston born about 1756 - 1774 below., father of our John Poston. Any and all help highly appreciated.

1663 Johannes Poston who married Maria (Walker) in Church Stretton in 1663

1676 Going back to the two Johns I have an entry which states that Johannes Poston married Maria (?) 11 October 1676 at Middleton on the Hill (maybe John and Mary you know?) Could one of the original Johns be their son born 1686 who emigrated to America, went on to have another John Poston who married Pricilla and had a son Samuel Poston etc.etc. NOTE: Going back to the two Johns I have an entry which states that Johannes Poston married Maria (?) 11 October 1676 at Middleton on the Hill (maybe John and Mary you know?) Could one of the original Johns be their son born 1686 who emigrated to America, went on to have another John Poston who married Pricilla (?) and had a son Samuel Poston etc.etc.

England and Maryland 1678 John POSTON, Sr. Born about 1678, perhaps near Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England. Came to Maryland in 1703, perhaps to St. Mary's County. Died 1744 in Charles County, Maryland.

England 1685 Gulielmi/William Poston who married a Martha (Browne) Jun 15, 1685 in Brimfield, Hereford, England. They had a daughter Joanna or Joan Poston who married John Baylis. William Poston who married Martha (Brown) his son William Poston and wife Winifred (?).

England 1686 William Poston 28 June 1686

England 1686 JOHN POSTON BORN 1686 ST. SHAD'S PARISH SHREWSBURY SHOPSHIRE.

1686 NOTE: Going back to the two Johns I have an entry which states that Johannes Poston married Maria (?) 11 October 1676 at Middleton on the Hill (maybe John and Mary you know?) Could one of the original Johns be their son born 1686 who emigrated to America, went on to have another John Poston who married Pricilla (?) and had a son Samuel Poston etc.etc.

England and Maryland 1686 John Poston is that he was born about 1686 in Northumberland,London, England married Mrs.Susanna (?) Poston in 1712 in St.Marys, MD and died 1744 in Charles,MD and had 10 children. NOTE: What are the names of the 10 children? Then his son Francis Poston was born 1715, died 4/1777 and married 1735 but I don't have his wifes name (?). Francis Poston had a son Elijah Poston who was born 1749, died 1811 and married 1769 to Susanna (Barker), their daughter Nancy Poston married Enos Smith

England 1687 Thomas Poston 18 December 1687

England 1690 Henry Poston 1 May 1690

England 1691 Johannes Poston 23 August 1691

England 1692 Martha Poston 10 Sept 1692

England 1694 Joanna (Poston) 22 May 1694 who married John Bayliss 4 August 1720. Joanna died on 6 November 1767.

England 1697 Wistanstow Marriages The following marriage is in the IGI: 1697 Dec 19 Richard Stary & Mary (Poston) BIRTHS, DEATHS AND MARRIAGES PARISH RECORDS - CHURCH REGISTERS AND BISHOP'S TRANSCRIPTS SHROPSHIRE (SALOP) http://www.zipworld.net/~rsterry/gen/shropbdm.htm

England to America 1703 no one can say exactly when John Poston from England was married. In the book "Elias B. Poston and His Ancestors," E. O. and G. L. James wrote that he probably married no later than 1712. They also wrote, "We have searched in vain for the marriage record among Maryland documents." John Poston was 17 when he came to America in 1703, bound to Henry Brown. I believe your information probably came from the book I quoted, which was published in 1942. The Colin James book, "A Poston Family Genealogy John Hamill Poston, 1786-1848," was published in 1959. In it is stated correctly what is shown in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register that John Poston came, not from Northumberland, but from "off Shrewesberry," which is in Shropshire. I'm not sure of the relationship between E. O., G. L., and Colin James, but some of the Colin James statements are almost direct quotes from the earlier book. Maybe I mis-read G. L. and it should have been C. L., for Colin. Someone on this forum can probably answer that. I did not copy pages about Francis from the E. O. and G. L. James book, but I'm sure they follow that line on because of this statement on page 7: "To quicken your interest, Francis Poston , the third son named in the will, was our ancestor; he was the grandfather of Elias B. Poston." If you have not seen that book, I feel sure you could learn more from it.

England and Maryland 1703 A John Poston sailed from Liverpool, England 26 april 1703, he was from in or near Shrewsbury, Shropshire, and landed in St Marys County, Maryland.

Pa. 1705 ? JOHN2 POSTON II, b. Bet. 1705 - 1736, Penn.; d. Bet. 1762 - 1820, Penn..JOHN2 POSTON II (JOHN1) was born Bet. 1705 - 1736 in Penn., and died Bet. 1762 - 1820 in Penn.. He married MARGARET (BALDRIDGE) Bet. 1734 - 1761, daughter of WILLIAM BALDRIDGE and JANETTE (HOLMES). She was born 1719 in Belfast, Ireland, and died 1766 in Little Britain, Penn

NOTE: I have several Poston families living in Shropshire from the 1600's (just in passing Shropshire was also sometimes referred to as Salop) anyway I digress. I will list the towns I have together with the Christian names of the males below and you will notice that certain areas and families tend to stick to their own line of Christian names thus:- 1. Church Stretton line: Samuel, John, Richard, Edward, Robert, William and I have one only Elisha. 2. Wrockwardine and Winstanstowe line: Edward, William, Thomas, John, Samuel, George, Charles, Robert, Richard and I have only one Randolf. 3. There is also a line in Herefordshire at Middleton on the Hill: Guiliemi (William), Johannes (John), Thomas, Richard, Samuel, Henricus (Henry), Thomas and Charles. 4. I also have Postons in Staffordshire (before boundary changes which put the following towns in the now West Midlands). 5. Tipton: Thomas, Richard, John, Joseph. 6. Walsall: Edward
7. Dudley: Samuel 8. Kidderminster: Thomas, Samuel and Caroline.

*****NOTE : ?????? Samuel Poston. However, after Colin James' book was published, a page from a very old Poston Bible was found, which lists Samuel's parents as Jonathan and Mary Poston. This information requires a revision in the lineage given in James' book. One logical conclusion is that there was another generation in the line, and that Jonathan was the son of John, Jr., and Priscilla. Clearly, the abundance of men named John in the Poston family makes it very difficult to separate the generations and prove the relationships. We may assume that Jonathan and Mary Poston lived in NC in the 1760s, because a deed dated 1769 shows that they sold 101 acres of land in Rowan Co., NC. This is the same land which Jonathan (no wife's name given) bought in 1762. According to the page from the Bible, Samuel was born 8 Oct 1765. He married Rachel King, and they had seven children, including John Poston, father of Sarah Poston London. Samuel's will was probated in 1819 and Rachel's in 1853.

SC 1775 Sarah Poston London's ancestry is well documented. Her maternal line traces back to Robert and Sarah (maiden name unknown) Patterson of York Co., SC. It is unknown whether or not Robert was the immigrant. His will, written in 1775 and recorded in York Co. in 1791, mentions land which he owned in "the Province of Virginia," but it is not known if he lived in another state before that. One child named in the will is Robert, who was born circa 1775, moved to Rutherford Co., NC, and thence to McMinn Co., TN, where he died. His will was probated on 7 Jan 1828 in McMinn Co. Robert's wife was Mabel, surname unknown. Robert and Mabel's daughter, Mabel, was born in NC, probably Rutherford Co., on 11 Dec 1796. She married John Poston, born 31 Dec 1797, and they remained in the part of Rutherford Co. that became Cleveland Co. John Poston and Mabel Patterson Poston were the parents of Sarah Poston London. John Poston died 20 Oct 1862, and Mabel died 14 Jan 1884. They are buried with some of their children and grandchildren in the Poston Cemetery on Highway 226 in Cleveland Co. Elizabeth Patterson, sister of Mabel Patterson and therefore aunt of Sarah Poston London, married Isom Julian in Rutherford Co., NC. They eventually settled in Bradley Co. The earliest known ancestor of Sarah Poston London through her father, John Poston, is the immigrant, John Poston, who came to America in 1703 from Shropshire Co., England. At that time John Poston was 17 years old and was bound to a Henry Brown. John Poston settled in Maryland and reared a large family. According to Colin James, author of A Poston Family Genealogy, published in 1959, John, Poston Jr., son of the immigrant, moved to NC. His wife's name was Priscilla (?) , and they had 4 sons, one of whom was named Samuel. However, after Colin James' book was published, a page from a very old Poston Bible was found, which lists Samuel's parents as Jonathan and Mary Poston. This information requires a revision in the lineage given in James' book. One logical conclusion is that there was another generation in the line, and that Jonathan was the son of John, Jr., and Priscilla. Clearly, the abundance of men named John in the Poston family makes it very difficult to separate the generations and prove the relationships. We may assume that Jonathan and Mary Poston lived in NC in the 1760s, because a deed dated 1769 shows that they sold 101 acres of land in Rowan Co., NC. This is the same land which Jonathan (no wife's name given) bought in 1762. According to the page from the Bible, Samuel was born 8 Oct 1765. He married Rachel King, and they had seven children, including John Poston, father of Sarah Poston London. Samuel's will was probated in 1819 and Rachel's in 1853. Note: What are the seven childrens names of Jonathan Poston and Mary Poston?

SC to Va. 1881 Andrew Jackson Poston, born 1881 in Darlington SC area . Moved to Lynchburg Va. before 1910. He worked in the cotton mill there and maybe in Danville Va. I don't know anything about him in South Carolina except he was raised by two step-sisters and was born in Darlington SC. His full name was Andrew Jackson Poston and I was told he was called Jack. He was born 8/25/1881. Andrew J. Poston, died in 1946 in Virginia. A copy of his death certificate list "unknown" for the parents. It also stated, he was not a veteran. He worked in a cotton mill so I doubt he owned property. With no paper trail I think he will be a hard person to find, unless someone finds his name in connection with their family history.

SC 1912 McErvin Poston (died abt. 1912) and his son Andrew B. Poston (died May 27, 1920). I am trying to trace Hugh R. Poston, brother of Andrew B. Poston. I would like to exchange information about Postons of Georgetown County, SC.

Va. DALLAS POSTON is the dispenser of justice in his section of Shasta County, as well as a farmer on a large scale on what is known as the Lilly ranch, one of the best ranches in that part of the county. He is of good old Virginia and Kentucky stock, which came originally from Scotland. His grandfather, Henry Poston, was born in Kentucky, and was a soldier in the war of 1812; his father, William Harrison Poston, was born in Virginia, and was a soldier in the Mexican war; his son, the subject of this sketch, was born in Virginia January 9, 1844, and he also served his country in the great civil war. He enlisted in Company K, of the Missouri Volunteer Cavalry, when a youth of only seventeen, and was consequently too young to receive promotion; but he was promoted before the close of the war to the position of Second Sergeant. His mother, Louisa (Johnson) Poston, was a native of Virginia, and he was the second child of a family of nine children. After his service in the army he turned his attention to farming in Missouri for a time, and then emigrated to Kansas and purchased 160 acres of land, upon which he built and which he otherwise improved. In April, 1873, he came to Lake County, California, and worked in the quicksilver mines successfully four years. He then started and ran a meat-market six years, when he sold and removed to Middletown, in that county, and ran the Lake County Hotel for a year. Then, in 1887, he went to the Lilly ranch in Shasta County, where he now resides, and is sowing about 320 acres of land to wheat, barley and oats. Mr. Poston was married in 1864, to Miss Mary Jane Funk, a native of Missouri, and they have had nine children, seven of whom are living, namely: William H., Cory B., Winnie E., born in Missouri; Sarah and Chas. A., born in Kansas, and Ira, Emery, Evan and Omar, born in California. Mr. Postonís political views are Democratic. He has held the office of Supervisor in Lake County for several years and now holds the office of Justice of the Peace in Shasta County. He is a member of the A.O.U.W. and of the I.O.O.F., and has been District Deputy in both orders. Memorial & Biographical History of Northern California, The Lewis Publishing Co., 1891
