A Posey from the past
We received a note and picture from Kenneth Smith, of Mayfield, Kentucky. The picture is below. Mr. Smith indicates that his grandmother was named Posey and her father was from either Indiana or Kentucky. His name was Sam Posey. Mr. Smith, indicates this picture is of someone named Posey, but does not have the particulars. The picture is believed to be from the Civil War era. Anyone recognize this young man?
Local Bank Note
Mr. Bob Young from Ft. Wayne, IN, sent us this image of a bank note he has had in his possession for quite some time. He was born in Mt. Vernon on Main Street. One of the names on the note is President JB Young. Our Mr. Young is trying to determine if he could be related to the signer of the note. If any of you Mt. V/Posey County historians have any information, please pass it along and I will make sure it gets to Bob.
