Posen is a city, and it was also a province of Poland at the time of your ancestors.
Sometimes when asked, our ancestors would give the name of the province or district they were from rather than the specific village or town.
Do you have actual US marriage records or naturalization records for any of your ancestors? These documents in particular often provide the specific name of their birthplace. This could help determine if they were from the actual city of Posen or from the province. If they were from the province, then these records would probably give the specific name of their village in the province of Posen.
