Poston, Sr. (February 14, 1898â€”November 1968), was a railroad employee from Hornbeck, a small town in Vernon Parish in western Louisiana, who served a single term from 1960-1964 as a Democratic state senator from what is now District 30 (Beauregard, Calcasieu, Sabine, and Vernon parishes). At the time, Postonâ€™s constituency did not include the current precincts in Calcasieu Parish. Poston did not seek a second term in 1964; instead his son, Bryan A. Poston, a businessman also from Hornbeck, was elected to succeed him. Bryan Poston held the Senate seat from 1964â€“1992, when he retired and was replaced by James David Cain of Dry Creek in Beauregard Parish.
