I am looking for information about S.A. Posey hoping that someone will have information about his mother and father. S.A. Posey had brothers named Green Harrison Posey (my line) and Birdrick (Bird) Posey.
Here is information that might help--
From "History of Gentry and Worth Counties [Missouri], 1882." pages 446-447
was born in Russell County, Kentucky, June 12, 1821. His father, Harrison Posey, was a native of Charles County, Maryland, and his mother, formerly Lavina Vandike, of South Carolina. S.A. was the sixth child in the family of seven children. He was reared on a farm in his native county, where he received a limited education. In the fall of 1863 he came to Missouri, locating in Macon County, and here lived until the winter of 1874, when he came to Gentry County. While in Kentucky he learned the trade of blacksmithing, which he has followed more or less during life. He is now engaged in farming, and owns a farm of 120 acres, his residence being on section 27. Mr. Posey has been twice married: First, April 2, 1840, to Miss Sarah E. Bradshaw, of Russell County, Kentucky, by which union they had fourteen children, eight of whom are living. His second marriage occurred November 6, 1866, in Macon County, Missouri, to Mrs. Mary Hill, a daughter of Jessie Canaday, of Indiana. By this union they have had seven children, five of whom are living: Columbus L., Granville Y., Marion S., George A.L. and Nellie L. Mrs. Posey was born in Macon County, Missouri, February 4, 1838.

It lists the following children:
