Now there is some corroboration for the linkage of Micajah Posey (b. 1742) and Francis Poschet (1615-1654).
Until this writing, we (and a ton of other Posey-challenged genealogy types) were stymied by at least a 2 generation gap between Micajah Posey and Francis Poschet, the acknowledged progenitor of all Posey descendants in America.
Most sources gave Francis 2 sometimes 3 children, none of them named Micajah. Sources that have centered on Micajah, on the other hand, almost universally mention his father being named Micajah, and Francis having a son named Micajah.
It apparently is all true.
Again, for aspiring "dead-enders", building a web page is worth it. This past week we were contacted by a Posey descendant who saw the Hof/ftree site. He also has a site, which I accessed and discovered he listed a Micajah as a son of Francis, born 1654, the year Francis died. I made a phone call and spoke with him, asking his source. He dug it up quickly and shot me down to Texas, to my second source who I also phoned. She shot me over to Florida where we now await the final word.
Here's the line as it now stands.
3 children plus
Micajah b. 1645
Micajah b. 1697
Micajah b. 1742.
...and so it goes.
