Re: James Walton baptized 1 Feb 1795 Long Island, New Brunswick, son of John & Ann
This is from Missouri.
Here is what I have on the Post family.
I descend from the Long family and the Walton family.
In 1844, 26 year old Erastus Post, driven from his family’s farm near the Missouri river by floods, purchased a 200 acre tract on St. Charles Rock Road.
He had been just a baby when his parents, John & Elizabeth Post, and his 13 year old sister, Maria, migrated from Vermont in 1820 and settled on a farm near the site of Chesterfield. The elder Post and his growing son raised stock and cultivated the fields for nearly a quarter of a century until the waters inundated their land.
Following his acquisitions of property on the Rock Road , erastus Post was married 3 times. He had 2 children, Missouri and William Post by his 1st wife , but none by his 2nd, Orissa who died in 1859 when only 29 years old.
He was a successful 43 year old farmer in 1861 when he & another native of Vermont, 19 year old Ardelia E. Whitford, were married. He built his bride a 13 room brick home on a beautiful knoll overlooking the surrounding countyside. The antebellum house is still standing near the Lindbergh boulevard overpass.
Erastus, who died at the age of 63 on the 1st day of Jan. 1882.
