States: Louisiana: West Feliciana
I have located on the 1850 census of WFP a Frederick Dear age 38 born in PA. Wife listed as Hannah age 28. Children John C. age 13, Margaret L. age 10, Ann J. age 8, and Amelia 3/12.
Is this wife Hannah Posey who married a Mr. Dear? I have very little info on Hannah other than her parents were John Posey and Margaret Palmer of West Feliciana Parish who married in 1818. Hannah does not appear on the census of 1850 under their household so I assume she is older than the other children in the household and already married.
Hannah is also noted to have married an H. P. Wright but with no marriages dates, I don't know which marriage came first.
