Kit: 276289; Most distant relative: Stephen Post, b 1779, Dutchess County, NY.

We suspect that Stephen Post (b 1779-Dutchess county, NY) was probably a descendant of the Long Island, NY, Post family.  The first record we have found of Stephen Post was was the 1810 census in Saratoga county, NY, though the 1855 NY census says he was born in Dutchess County, New York.  His date of birth is known from the 1850 and 1855 census records, plus a calculation from his age shown on his gravestone. 

Quaker records document that several members of the the Long Island Post family moved to Dutchess county, NY, prior to the time Stephen was born.  One was Stephen Post (b abt 1750), and another was his half brother, Richard Post (b abt 1735).  The last record of Stephen Post was when he left the Quakers in 1774, and he does not appear on any of the US census records.  1790 census records shows Richard and his son Henry in Dutchess county, near where the Quaker meeting hall was located, and the 1800 census shows a both of them in Saratoga county.  Quaker records confirm Richard's and Henry's movement.

The suspicion is that either Stephen Post (b abt 1750), or Richard's son Henry, might have been the father of Stephen Post (b 1779).  Several sources, including Quaker records, the 1905 book "The Post Family" (which has some issues especially with its older references), and "Long Island Genealogy" document some of the information, but do not provide the link.  Currently location, plus family names, and a borderline Quaker connection, are the only connections.

Stephen Post, who was born in Dutchess County, NY, in 1779, is clearly not the son of documented Stephen Post famies from Connecticut, or the son of the Stephen Post in Suffolk, NY (Who appears to have been a different part of the Long Island Post line.

The followihg are the confirmed lineage details. Hopefully DNA, plus other potential records, might fill the gap.
