Thank you so much for all the information on your Poss line. Our Jonah could turn out to be your cousin. I'm still searching.
Our Jonah was born in about 1861,we believe, in or around Fulton Co,Georgia. He married Francis "Fannie"Dowdy in October of 1881. They had 5 children: Maggie, Arthur, Walter, Julie and Estell "Stella". Fannie died in 1895 when Stella was born. Jonah re-married sometime before 1900 to a Mary A. Johnson who already had two children: Bertie and Willie. Jonah was a carpenter and lived until 1922. His daughters married and raised their families in the Atlanta area.
Walter married and raised his family in Missouri and Illinois. So far, we don't know anything about Arthur.
