Welcome to the ‘Posting family roots’ blog! My name is Susan Posten Ellerbee and I am the designated family genealogist. I have been doing genealogy for 20+ years. My primary research focus has been on the families of my parents and my parents-in-law, specifically:
- Posten (dad’s family) – Northeast Pennsylvania & New Jersey with French origins on his mother’s side.
- Tucker (mom’s family) – New York with German origins on her mother’s side.
- Ellerbee (father-in-law’s family) – Texas, Alabama, Georgia with English & Scandinavian origins.
- Johnson (mother-in-law’s family) – Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, with English & Irish origins.
Collateral family research includes: Richards, Fulkerson, LaCoe Ostrander (Posten branch); Maurer & Traver (Tucker); Simmons & Bailey (Ellerbee); Reed, Holcomb & Creager (Johnson). Possible relatives: other Posten families from northeast Pennsylvania.
I am married with 2 sons, both in their 20s. We live in a suburb of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
