First of all, online family trees are not sources. Unless they attach documentation, they are, at best, clues. At worst, they are fiction. As a Posey descendent, supposedly through Mary Perry, I'm not sure the John Poseys are correctly sorted out...in fact, I'm pretty sure they aren't. I've found documentation that Capt John Posey of Rover's Delight in Virgina was married to Elizabeth Adair as a second or third wife. It appears probable that Martha Price was the wife preceeding Elizabeth Adair. But I'm not sure about the Mary Perry marriage being to the same man. I'm still trying to sort these people out. Eight now, I'm assuming the John Posey who married Mary Perry is NOT John Posey of Rover's Delight.
