Posey Williams
Posted by: Pamela Smith (ID *****2468) Date: December 01, 2008 at 21:16:34

I'm looking for more information on Posey Williams b. 1825 Ohio who married Mrs. Susanna Harkleroad b. 1810 PA. They were married in Columbia Co., OR on 9 July 1857 and had one son Henry Williams (b. 1858 Oregon d.1913 in Yakima, WA.) Posey and Susanna Williams are on the 1860 census in Clark Co., WA.
Susanna was previously married to William Harkleroad in Sullivan Co., TN. They migrated to Poweshiek Co., IA with brothers John & Dungan Houston families and are there next to each other on the 1850 census. All three wives born PA about the same time and all three lived Sullivan Co.,TN and may have been sisters. The Houston wives maiden name - Giesler - was Susanna also a Giesler?
William Harkleroad died 1855, soon after ariving in Oregon. Susanna remarried to Posey Williams and her Harkleroad children married and lived in both Washington and Oregon.
Posey Williams received a warrant for BLM land in Clark Co. 160 acres that had been warranted to a Francis Depries for his service in the Cayuse War. Depries reassigned the land to Williams. The document is dated 1866. By 1870 census there is no sign of Posey or Susanna Williams.

What happened to Posey and Susanna and their land? Any information about this couple will be greatly appreciated.
