Re: POSEY, C. K. on Cass Co., TX --1880 census

In Reply to: POSEY family in Cass Co., TX 1880--?? by LiRae of 517

Hello,
I have found the following Posey family on the 1880 Cass County Texas census, while looking for the parents of David Brison Posey.
Could the following be his parents/family? I am really stuck with trying to find parents and family members of David B. Posey.
Any and all help or direction with this is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. LiRae

This Cass Co., TX census was taken June 16, 1880. If this is David's parents...he could have been born the next year; 1881. Going to guess the kids over 7 belonged to a first wife for this C. K. Posey. If not...Fannie was only 9 years old when she started having kids. That would explain why the kid's in their teens mother was born in SC...but, not why the younger kids still had SC as their mother's birthplace.
Let's see, C. K. would have been born about 1845/1846 in Louisana. And what does C. K. stand for???? And, who were his parents? The questions are endless...are they not?
