Title: Descendants of Landlot Porter, b SC in mid 1700's, settled in MS Terr circa 1790
Post by: Janice Tracy on December 14, 2013, 12:31:51 PM
I am descended from Samuel Porter, b. 1799 in SC, married Mary Middleton in Franklin Co., MS in May 1825. Later settled in Madison and Attala Counties in MS. There was another Mary Middleton who married John Porter in Franklin Co. in 1808. Have had a male descendant of Samuel Porter Y-DNA tested and results are included with PORTER Surname Project on worldfamilies.net. His results match those of Shadrack Porter and John Porter of early VA. Can any of you who are researching Porter family history in SC (i.e. descendants of Hugh Porter, Hancock Porter, and Landlot Porter) tell me from whom Samuel, b. 1799 in SC descends. By the way, the Haplogroup for my Porter relative, as well as John and Shadrack, is showing up with a Haplogroup finding of J1.
