This is a transcript of the family record included in the pension application of Rebecca Poston. Clearly, the person who wrote it absentmindedly put down 18 when they meant 17 for the years. There was one additional daughter, Ruthy Smith, who was not included in the family record. However, she was listed amongst the heirs of Rebecca Poston living in 1851 along with “Mary Davis, Jane Bryson, Rebeca Bryson, Nancey Nicholas, Lusindia Stines,” and Robert Poston.
