For this narrative, the families of John Bennett Posey and wife, Amanda Catherine Posey, and Francis Marion Galloway and wife, Moranda Ann Jane Galloway, will be the subjects of focus because of the burials in the Posey Cemetery.

These Posey and Galloway families came to the area around York Creek to establish their homes. Farming was their occupation and cotton grew well in this Blackland Prairie area.
