Chesterfield Co., ?1756/1774
Samuel Poston here with out any sources, except that I find him in the Census for Marlboro & amp Chesterfield Counties, SC. Samuel is in the census starting in 1800 and 1820 in Marlboro Co, SC and then 1830 and 1840 Chesterfield Co, SC. He is not in the 1850 census at all. I should have put that he Samual Poston was born between 1756-1774. In the 1800 Marlboro Co, SC census he is listed as male age 26-44 with three males under 10 years old, one female under 10 years old and a female age 26 and 44 years old.

Samuel Postell State: SC County: Berkeley County Township: Will Year: 1757 Record Type: Probate Records Page: 00021 Database: SC Colonial Probate Index

NOTE NC 1760s Note 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 Poston 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 Poston 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 Poston 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 Poston was born 8 Oct 1765. He married Rachel King, and they had seven children, including John Poston, father of Sarah (Poston) London. and Rachel Poston in 1853.

Va., NC and SC 1775 -
Sarah (Poston) London's ancestry is well documented. Her maternal line traces back to Robert Poston and Sarah (?) maiden name unknown) Patterson of York Co., SC. It is unknown whether or not Robert Poston was the immigrant. His will, was written in 1775 and recorded in York Co. in 1791, mentions land which he owned in & quot the Province of Virginia,& quot but it is not known if he lived in another state before that. One child named in the will is 1. Robert Poston , 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 (?), . Robert Poston and Mabel's daughter, Mabel Poston , 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 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 Poston 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 Poston was the son of John, Poston 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.
