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.
