I have been looking for 2 years for the parents of:

James Henry Posey Birth: 12 Sept 1831 St. Mary's Maryland, United States Death: 24 April 1914 Alexandria, Fairfax, Virginia, United States

I have found several sources for him, but no birth records. My grandmother told me that he was raised in an orphanage. I also see that the St. Mary's courthouse was burned about the time of his birth.

  • To attract potential answerers to your question perhaps you can include more details (preferably with sources) to the events you have uncovered for James after his birth. Do any of those refer to any siblings for him?
