Biography of George W. Posson
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Posson, George Warner, was born in Shelby, October 2, 1850, and was the youngest but one of five children of Cornelius V. and Artemesia Posson of that town. George was brought up on the farm and was given a good education at Medina, Knowlesville and also at the Brockport Normal School, but ill health compelled him to leave before the graduation. He lived at home in Shelby until 1874, teaching school winters for five successive terms, and then came to his present farm in West Barre. Mr. Posson is not only considered one of the enterprising farmers of his town, but as well one of its progressive Citizens. He is a Republican and was three times elected supervisor of Barre. The family are members of the M. E. Church at Shelby. On November 6, 1873, Mr. Posson married Jennie M. Clute, of Shelby, and they had four children: Howard C., Martha J., Georgia B. and Artemesia A.
