This post is in regard to McErvin Poston b. abt. 1846 d. abt 1918, father of Andrew Benjamin Poston and Hugh R. Poston. McErvin is my gggrandfather married to Lydia Ann Unknown.
Children:
Mary E. Poston b. abt 1869 in SC
Martha Caroline Poston b. 27 August 1872 SC d. 30 Nov 1908 in Penbroke, Bryan GA. Married William Wesley Moyd (ggrandparents)
Adry Alice Poston b. abt 1877 SC
Hugh R. Poston b. abt 1886 SC
Andrew Benjamin Poston b. 11 Jun 1888 Sampit, Georgetown, SC d. 27 May 1920 Georgetown, SC buried in Sandridge Cemetery, Georgetown, SC.

McErvin's Father is William Poston b. abt 1794 and his mother is Ormar Unknown b. abt 1807. 1850 Census, Williamsburg, Williamsburg, SC
Children:
George W. Poston b. abt 1824
John Poston b. abt 1824
Letitia S. Poston b. abt 1829
Nicholas Poston b. abt 1833
William Poston b. abt 1835
Lidia Poston b. abt 1837
Hampton Poston b. abt 1839
Eliza Poston b. abt 1841
Lizey Poston b. abt 1843
McErvin Poston b. abt 1846

My grandmother Caroline Marie Moyd Dobbins believed that Andrew B. Poston was her grandfather (really her uncle)all her life. Her mother Martha Caroline (I have her obit) died when my grandmother was about 8 and had very few Poston relatives in her life. It was only this year that I was able to clear up who was who.

FYI: McErvin was listed in censuses as;
McKervin 1850 with William and Ormar
Mc'ervin 1880
Mack 1900
McIrvin (McIver) 1910 in this census married to Annie J. McErvin was living in Gourdin, Georgetown, SC near Andrew and Hugh.

Warmest regards, Marilyn
