Your reply was interesting. Our Porters are traced back to Philip Porter b. abt 1750 married to Nancy Ann Sexton. His father may be David Porter, not proved yet. They went to KY and he died in Spencer Co., KY
I was born in 1938 in Dayton, OH and have been working on the Porters/Clements and my husband's side for over 20 years. Phillip's sons were:
John G. Porter, William E. Porter, James Porter, Henry B. Porter "Dr", Charles Porter,
Alfred Porter, and Katherine Porter. If you can make any connections, let me know.
Yes I know about Admiral David Porter, but have not been able to link him as our David Porter. Good Luck with all your hunting. If I find more information, I will let you know. My email is : firstname.lastname@example.org
