Ancestor 74/84 Abraham Post

When Abraham Post was born on August 7, 1780, in Hampshire, Virginia, their father, Valentine Sasla Post “Pfostadecker”, was 43, and their mother, Barbara Devlin, was 29.

He married Christina Tenay in 1798 when only 18 years old.  Their children in order of birth were:   Susannah, Daniel, Maria Mary, Frances Florence “Fanny”, George, Barbara, Abram, and Issac.

I’m not sure of this information but one person believes he then married Elizabeth Rader on May 3, 1832, in Jackson, Virginia.  This would have been before Christina’s death and I have found no records of a divorce or this second marriage.

He died on March 7, 1855, in Post Mill, Upshur County, West Virginia, at the age of 74, and was buried in Hodgesville, Upshur, West Virginia.
