  • Name  Laura L.M. Posson 
    Born  9 May 1849  Schoharie County, New York Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2, 3, 4
    • Her Illinois death records indicates she was born in Albany, New York. However, on the 1850 US Census, her family was in Wright, Schoharie County, New York. Given that Laura was just a year old in 1850, I wonder if "Albany" is correct. In The History of Winnebago County she is reported to have been born in Schoharie County.
