These Posey where Choctaw and Cherokee Indian. I am also looking for a Jennie Ann Byde.Oliver K.

Surnames: Posey McKinley
Hi Jenny,

I am researching the McKinley family, and I find that
Harry McKinley married Susan Ettie Posey in 1899
in Pottawatomie Co, OK. His sister Lillie is supposed
to have married William Clark Posey on 9/12/1900 in
Pottawatomie Co, OK. I believe Susan and William
were siblings of Sarah Ella Posey.

I have been able to track Harry and Susan through census
records all the way up to 1930 when they are living in
Pend Orielle Co, WA. They were living near Susan's
brothers John Wesley and Isaiah in Sayre, Beckham Co,
OK, in the 1910 census. Then in Burkburnett, Wichita,
TX, in 1920.

They had the following children, that I know of:
Homer H 1901 OK
Bessie M 1903 OK
Etta Marie 1904 OK
Gertrude 1907 Canada
Dolly 1909 TX
Dovie M 1910 OK
Lewis L 1911 OK
Corinne 1916 ID
Ollie 1921 ID

I was unable to find William and Lillie in a census.

Just wondering if you know of any other information on
these two families?
Thanks, Charlotte Covey

Charlotte,
I think you are correct. I have a picture of Sarah Posey's brothers and sisters. I will look at it and see what I can find out. I know she had brothers by the names you mentioned and she had a sister named "Ettie". Jenny

Surnames: McKinley Posey
Jenny,
In the 1920 census record I mentioned from Wichita Co, TX,
Harry and Susan Ettie McKinley are living in a "compound"
with Oliver K and Sarah (her parents), her brother Clarence,
and I believe her sister Beulah who is married to a Dr. Lee E
Parmalee (last name was difficult to read).

Her father was listed as a "preacher of the Gospel".

Charlotte,
Yes Oliver was an Evangelist and held meetings and had sermons. He is a very interesting man. I have pictures of him, his children, his wife and would be happy to share these with you, if I had your e-mail or phone number or address we could commuinate and I would love to help you out in any way I can. We are having a Moore Reunion next Saturday and I wish you could come. It is in Sulphur, Ok. These are decendants of Oliver Knox Posey by way of Sarah Ella "Eller" Posey-Moore. My great grandmother. Jenny

Surnames: McKinley Posey Moore
Jenny,
I would really enjoy seeing the pictures of the Posey
family. I have spent some time tracking them through
census records and would love to be able to put faces with
names.

One question, you mentioned the Moore family. In tracking the McKinley family I found that Peter McKinley, father of
Harry and Lillie that I mentioned before, had a second marriage to a Moore. I'm afraid I don't know her first name
yet. His first wife died around 1883 and he remarried and
was living around Woodford, Carter Co, OK, from early 1880's until his death in 1900. The couple had at least three children
that I know of: Homer G, Naomi, and Noble Montague.
Does any of this familiar? It could be a totally different
Moore family, it is a pretty common name.

Hope you enjoy your reunion, maybe it won't be too hot!!

Charlotte
