Posey Cemetery Marker
The Posey Cemetery CM-C103 is located on private land in northeastern
Comal County and was established in 1859 on a family farm for of family
burials. 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. The families came to Texas from Tennessee
in the 1850s shortly after Texas achieved statehood. The lure of land
and a better life prompted settlers to leave their homes and travel to
Texas. 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. They were rugged people and
braved the elements to settle this area and make homes for themselves
that would result in many generations of descendants in the area.
The Posey Cemetery was designated as an Historic Texas Cemetery in March 2017.
