Birth: Sep. 12, 1796
Luzerne County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 19, 1883
Lake County
Indiana, USA

Hiram Post, retired farmer, was born in Luzerne County, Penn. September
12, 1796, and was married, October 10, 1818, to Miss Hannah Josslin, who
was born in the same county November 8, 1800. To this union were born
ten children, of whom three sons and one daughter are still living. Mr.
Post lived in Pennsylvania until 1850, when he came to this township and
entered a claim of forty acres. Mr. and Mrs. Post are probably the
oldest couple living in the county, and although he came here but with
$7 in cash and a small amount of household furniture, he has, by hard
work and economy, placed himself and family beyond the reach of want.
