I am descended from James (I believe) Madison Poss, of Forsyth Co, GA, later moved to Smithville, Dekalb Co., TN.My great grandfather was Madison's son by Rachel Barks. Samuel L. Poss.Samuel's son was Hugh Carson Poss (my grandfather), and Hugh's son, Clifton Thomas (Paul) Poss (my father).
Samuel L. was killed around 1927.Hugh was b. 1921, d. 1993.Paul was b. 1947.
Any information ANYONE can give me on Rachel Barks OR Madison Poss would be much appreciated, as I am just beginning to dig into this branch of my family, and it hasn't been easy going.
