Title: Porter Family Pedigrees
Post by: Brian Porter on February 13, 2005, 10:55:50 AM
Welcome to the Pedigree Forum for the Porter Surname Project!
Project’s Website: http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/Porter/
[Navigate to all pages of the project's website using the links across the top of the page.]

Posting your pedigree allows it to be seen by interested researchers who may contact you to share information. It’s a great way to further your research.

Each project website includes both a FAMILY PEDIGREE FORUM and a PROJECT’S PATRIARCH PAGE.
Please Note: Our Pedigree Policy was revised as of November 15, 2012, for WorldFamilies-administered Project Patriarch Pages

The FAMILY PEDIGREE FORUM (below) is open to anyone who has a family pedigree in this surname.
• Researchers who are not a member of the Surname DNA Project, but wish to share a family pedigree.
• Project Members who wish to post a more extended version of their pedigree to supplement the “stripped down” pedigree posted on the Patriarch Page.

The PROJECT’S PATRIARCH PAGE http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/Porter/pats includes only the pedigrees of Project Members.
• The pedigree must be for a Member of the Surname DNA Project at Family Tree DNA.
• You must provide a kit number to be posted with the pedigree.
• You must submit your pedigree by email to carrie@worldfamilies.net
• The email should include the following:
   # Name of project
   # Kit Number
   # Name of person posting pedigree
   # Email address to be posted with pedigree
   # Name, birthdate, birthplace, spouse of Earliest Known Ancestor
   # List each succeeding generation below, using only those four items of information (or substitute another item of information if missing an item)

• When you have logged in, scroll to the last posting on this forum, click "reply" and post your pedigree.
• Please do not include names for anyone born after 1910, to protect privacy.

Hi, Linhawk.  There are no pedigrees posted as yet for the Porter family.  If you would like yours posted, just put it here in the forum and I will post it on the patriarch page for you.  Good luck.  Click here to see the patriarch page.

Hi, aaporter.  I posted the first line of your family tree on the Patriarch page, since the others are too recent to use.  Hope it helps in your research, and hope you will join the DNA project.

Since the only publishable line had so little information, I should note that that individual "almost certainly" lived in Minneapolis, MN in 1930.  That's pretty much the only other detail I know about this individual - my grandfather either doesn't know or won't reveal this individual's first name, and Rose Porter is deceased (c1996 Minneapolis MN).

There is a link from the Patriarch page back to you posting, so interested researchers can read your postings, and perhaps someone will contact you with more information.  Good luck with your research.

Hello, I submitted my pedigree & see that it is posted, but I wanted to make sure it was understood that the Benjamin Phillips Porter that I have is the same as the son identified under the "Benjamin Porter, b 1763, Boston MA or Canada, m Elizabeth Casey" heading that someone else submitted. I don't know if you like to keep the lines separate based on submitter, but my information really isn't a new "line" of Porter families. Sorry, if my submission wasn't clear.

Thanks for this great site.

Porter had at least one other son, Samuel Porter, born between 1793 and 1800, who married and had children.  Samuel Porter moved away from the White County/Van Buren County area of Tennessee between 1838 and 1840.  He may have descendents living.  He may or may not have been born in Tennessee.  The middle initial of John N. Porter is a best estimate of old handwriting.  It may or may not be correct.  Nancy Porter Brock, the one known child of John N. Porter whose birthplace is listed in the US census, stated that she was born in North Carolina in one place, and that she was born in Tennessee in another place.  She was of an age to have been born in the part of North Carolina that became Tennessee, so both statements could be accurate.

Joshua W. Porter had one additional son who lived at least until the middle 1850s.  This son was named Joshua Porter, born about 1831.  Joshua was most likely born in Marion County, Tennessee.  He may or may not have had descendents.  The middle initial for Joshua W. Porter the father is a best estimate of old handwriting.  It may or may not be correct.

These Porters are said to have been of Scots descent;  the dna will tell how accurate that is.

Thank you for posting the pedigree!

Alison Stevens for John C. Porter who donated the dna.

Greetings. I am a new member, seeking to establish region of origin of my clan in the UK. Here is what is confirmed about my ancestors, starting with most distant known:

Patrick Porter, b 4 Jan 1731, m. c1756 to Susannah Walker in Orange Co. (now Caswell Co.) NC, d c1806 place unconfirmed, possibly Floyd Co. KY
John Walker Porter, b 6 January 1766 in Orange Co. NC, m. Martha "Patsy" Hutchinson 1789, d 1842 Floyd Co. KY
Benjamin P. Porter, b c1809 probably Scott Co VA, m. Abigail Blevin 1827, date of death unknown to me
Samuel Walker Porter, b 1827 Floyd Co KY, m Mary Akers, d. 1910 Martin Co KY
Cornelius Wilson Porter, b 1858 Floyd Co KY, m Sally Ward, d 1934 Martin Co KY
Cornelius Wilson Porter Jr, b 1888 Martin Co KY, m Malta Mae Williamson, d 1973 Martin Co KY
Ransom Lee Porter, b 1912 Martin Co KY, m Elsie Cassell, d 2000 Chesapeake VA

I have had my Y-DNA analyzed by FamilyTreeDNA and Oxford Ancestors. Results so far point to Scots-Irish ancestry. Am happy to share this information with other Porters.

thanks,

From an email sent by Ed Porter (kit 177455):

"I have recently added my "Porter" lineage to an Abraham Lincoln "GEDCOM" file that I found on the Internet a while back and I have attached my "Porter" line to this Lincoln file as a "LEGACY" file format.  One of my relatives wrote a book and had it published in 1937 by ARGUS Publishing Co., Minneapolis, MN.  This book is titled, "The Descendents of Peter Porter an Emigrant of 1621".  On Page 160 of this book it provides an explanation of the "PORTER-SHIPLEY-HANKS Relationship", explaining the relationship between the Porters and Nancy Hanks and her son, Abraham Lincoln, President of the US.  It further explains that the following relationship is calculated from data given in Warren's "Ancestry of Lincoln's Mother, " printed in 1935.  I used this information to connect my "Porter" line to the line of Abraham Lincoln.  Of course I have no way to prove this other than from my relatives book of 1937, but maybe your database has a way to prove this as true or false?  I would gladly send you all the .pdf files that make up this "Porter" book, but it would have to be in several separate emails, since the scanned .pdf chapters always seem to get blocked by server firewalls due to the size of these .pdf files.  Let me know what you find out, and if you want a copy of this book.  By the way, several years ago when I was on a business trip to Salt Lake City, I stopped into the Mormon Genealogical Library and found that portions of this "Porter" book had been entered into their database, but parts of it had been entered incorrectly.  When I notified the Mormon Library regarding fixing the "Porter" lineage mistakes, they just blew me off and said it did not matter to them.  At that point, I just lost faith in any of their stored data, because who knows how many other mistakes they just blow off.  I appreciate any insight and help you might provide."

I am very new at this...and just finding info on my Porter/ Perry lines.

Any help would be appreciated.

Patrick Porter, Born about 1806 in Wayne County, West Virginia.
Married Sarah or Sally?  18 July 1827 in Wayne County, West Virginia.

William Porter, born about 1837 in KENTUCKY?
Married Emmaline Perry in Wayne County, West Virginia on 24 November 1861.
William Porter died in Scioto County, Ohio after 1910. Emmaline (Emma) died after 1900 in Scioto County, Ohio.

Emmaline Perry's parents seem to be Arnold Perry and Mary Ratliff or Radcliff.

Izelia Frances Porter was born 16 August 1873 in Rarden Twp., Scioto County, Ohio.
She married George O'Bryant (O'Briant) Son of Asham O'Bryant and Lydia Jones in Scioto County, Ohio
She died 2 SEP 1934 in Rarden, Scioto County, Ohio.

Any help with Patrick Porters Parents names or the surname of his wife Sarah (Sally?) would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Thank you ARMY...

I have found some additional, UNVERIFIED, info  on this line.  For the sake of others research I'll post it since it might lend some clues to their searching...

Patrick Porter, father of William Porter of Kentucky, born about 1806 in Russell County, Kentucky.
md. Sarah (Sally) Blevins 18 July 1827 in Floyd County, Ky. (Daughter of Levi Blevins and Mary Johnson?).
-------------------------------------
Patrick Porter of North Carolina?, born 22 Feb 1776.
md. about 1796, Elizabeth Pendleton, born about 1780 in Virginia.---------------------------------------
Patrick Porter, born 1 May 1737, in Orange County, Va. Died about 1805 in Scott County, Va.
md. Susannah "Anna" Walker about 1756 at Walkers Creek, Augusta Co,, Va.
She was born 31 March 1739 in Orange County, Va. Daughter of John Walker III and Annie Houston.
----------------------------
Benjamin Porter born 1679; died 1761.
md. Mary Ann Campbell, born Ulster, 1680, died in Virginia.


I have yet to research these lines; but they appear to be following the same migrations as many of my other ancestors who seemed to be Scottish or English Covenanters or Welsh Quakers...

Many Scottish Jacobite who fled to America via IOrelan, Holland or Germany to America after their defeat in the Jacobite Rebellions...

Benjamins parents are said to be Nicholas Porter and Elizabeth Mitchell.  Mary Ann Campbell is said to be the daughter of William Campbell and Sarah Gay...

If anyone can assit in verifying these lines...please do...

SHHHHH...lets keep this on the Porter Forums...but some say my ancestor Abraham Inlow of North Carolina, whose servant was Nancy Hanks, fathered the boy...and asked his friend the governor of kentucky to assist him with the issue...

From an email sent by Robert Porter [robertporter151 AT comcast.net]:

"The first known of our line was Edward Porter who came to Westmoreland, Va, around 1695. After coming to America, he married Mary and had several children. Among them was John Porter who married Sarah Sanders, daughter of Capt Edward Sanders of Va. They had child Edward Sanders Porter who died in Union Co. S. C. Edward Sanders Porter sold land in Va, he inherited from his mother's family, Sanders family. His mother's sister signed her part of the land over to him. He sold and moved to S. C, this was in the later 1700's."
