Chapter 17 - Benjamin Posey and Eliza Berryhill

Chapter Seventeen

Benjamin Posey

Benjamin Posey was born 10 September 1807, Georgia, the son of Nancy Berryhill Posey. There is some speculation that Nancy's husband was Bennett Posey Jr. Quite a few web pages on Ancestry say that Nancy Berryhill, the proven mother of Benjamin Posey, married Bennett Uriah Posey on 21 March 1796 in Oglethorpe County, Georgia. Since Bennett Posey married Nancy Griffin on this date in Greene County, Georgia, I am wondering how some researchers decide that Nancy Griffin was actually Nancy Berryhill. According to the bible at the end of this chapter, Nancy was born 28 March 1784, the daughter of John Berryhill and his wife Elizabeth Durouzeaux. If she got married on 21 March 1796, then she was 12 years old when she got married. While that is possible, it is not possible that she was married to a Mr Griffin first. If anybody can prove this so that I can believe it, I would very much appeciate it. Bennett Uriah Posey was born 1762 in the Creek Nation of Georgia, and died 6 May 1833 in Troup County, GA. His parents were Bennett Posey, born 8 June 1731, Charles County, MD, died June 1762, Charles County, Md, married Elizabeth Hobart about 1758 in Charles County, MD. His grandparents were Benjamin Posey, born 1685, Charles county, MD, died 1750, Halifax County, VA, married Patience Bateman about 1724, who was born 1703, died 1781. His great-grandparents were Benjamin Posey,born 1648,Charles County, MD, died 1715, Charles County, MD, married Mary Belaine about 1683. Mary was born about 1655, died 1723. His great-great grandparents were Francis Posey, born 1615, Cambrai, France, died 1654, Charles County, MD, married Elizabeth Humphrey in 1645. Elizabeth was born 1620, died 1676. Most of the above information came from the Ancestry web page of Rhonda Etter.

John Berryhill was the son of Joseph and Hanna Berryhill of North Carolina. Elizabeth Durouzeau was the daughter of James Durouzeaux and granddaughter of Daniel Durouzeaux.

Benjamin Posey married his first cousin, Eliza Berryhill, 30 December 1824 in Pike County, Georgia.126 Eliza was the daughter of Thomas S. Berryhill, who was born 7 December 1782 in Georgia, and his wife Sarah Deacle. Thomas and Sarah were married 24 October 1804 in Georgia. Thomas S. Berryhill was the son of John Berryhill and his wife Martha Elizabeth Durouzeaux.

Benjamin and Eliza named one of their sons John Deacle Posey. I misread this as John Deach Posey, and that is how it got into my book wrong. Mary Bondourant Warren, a very thorough researcher, read the same document (I sent it to her) for "Family Puzzlers" and said the name was John Deacle Posey. I should have listened to her 25 years ago.

Benjamin and Eliza were members of the Coweta Tribe of Creek Indians, and living with their Indian relatives in the Creek Nation (now Chambers County, Alabama) in 1832 in Horse Path Town, near present day Fredonia, Alabama, where they lived on 320 acres.127

The Creek Indian Removal started in 1836 from Alabama to the new Indian Territory (Oklahoma). Benjamin Posey and his family did not go to the new home of the Creeks right away, but settled in Texas in 1846.

Benjamin Posey and his sons became prominent in Limestone County, Texas, Eliza dying in that county about 1879, and Benjamin moving to Indian Territory after September 1882, dying in Indian Territory August 1883. He is buried in the Elwood Cemetery, Wagoner, OK.

   5.  John Deacle Posey, born 2 May 1831, Chambers County, Alabama, married
       Catherine Jones, 27 January 1852, Cherokee county, Texas, believed
       moved to Starkville, Mississippi.  Also thought to have had four sons,
       one daughter.  (4th Texas Cavalry)

       I believe the one daughter may have been named Josephine. She went
       to the Creek Nation and applied for admission, which was denied.
       There were about 100 pages of testimony. I have copied a few
       pertinent pages. She made many mistakes in her testimony, probably
       owing to the fact that she grew up away from her Posey relatives.
       None of them knew her when she went before the Dawes Commission, she
       met them just as she was testifying. boston1.jpg boston2.jpg boston3.jpg

Alexander Lawrence Posey

Alexander Lawrence Posey, born 3 Aug 1873, died 27 May 1908, Eufaula, McIntosh Co. OK, was a Creek Indian author, journalist, and teacher. One of the first Native American writers to achieve a national reputation. He grew up listening to Creek Tales from his mother Pohas Harjo, a fullblood Creek, whose white name was Nancy Phillips and who married a Scotch and Irish man named Lewis H. Posey. He developed an understanding of the human spirit and loved nature. He attended Bacone University, now Bacone College in Muskogee,Ok,where he acted as a librarian on Sundays and set type after schools hours for the Bacone Indian University Instructor. He was elected in 1895 to a seat in the House of Warriors of the Creek Legislature. In 1896, he was Superintendent of the Creek Nation Orphan Asylum at Okmulgee, OK, until 1897. He became the editor of the "Indian Journal" in Eufaula, Creek Nation, IT, for two years, and then was employed at the "Muskogee Times" in Muskogee, IT. He then worked for the United States Indian Agency at Muskogee, where he took charge of the Creek enrollment party of the Five Civilied Tribes at the request of the Dawes Commision. He then returned to Eufaula as editor of the "Indian Journal." Due to a railroad bridge being washed out, he and his companion R. D. Howe, an attorney, on a trip from Muskogee to Eufaula, rented a boat to cross the river. The river overcame the boat, and they were forced to jump in the water where Alex drowned along with a negro who was rowing the boat. His body was recovered about a month later. His biography is entitled "Alex Posey: Creek Poet, Jounalist, and Humorist" by Daniel F. Littlefield, Jr.
