    It appears that Thomas and James died before the 1870 census.  They are of an age we would expect to still be in the household, but they are missing.

    Since George (G K) Posey married Fannie (Frances Elizabeth) Christian in 1877, the last two children enumerated here are Fannie's children.  The enumerator erred in reported the birth state of their mother the same as for the older children.  Fannie Christian was born, as correctly reported here on her record, in Texas, not South Carolina, as Nancy Allen, George's first wife.
