Hello, I'm looking for any information on Oliver or Thomas D(avenport) "Porty" WISEMAN (b. 1797 North Carolina, d. 1849 Missouri). Most of the information I have comes from Everett King's "History of Maries County Missouri", he mentions both Thomas D. and Oliver Davenport as "Porty" WISEMAN. "Porty" WISEMAN may have been married more than once, and King lists children as: Mary America, born Jan/Feb 1823 in Tennessee, married John Richard COPELAND; Myra Ann (daughter of second wife), born October 1823 in Tennessee, married Thomas ANDERSON; Eliza WISEMAN who died at age 18 (no birth or death year found); Matilda WISEMAN, married William A ROWDEN; and Albert WISEMAN. I would love to find information on "Porty", what his actual name was and who his parents were. Any help would be appreciated!
