Note, I am DottiePorterHimes and my email has changed to firstname.lastname@example.org
I am still searching for the parents of Philip Porter and now know that he was born 1754 in Alexandria, Fairfax Co. Va
You mentioned in a prior post Nov 2000 that John P. Porter married Elizabeth McDowell, and he had a son James Porter.
My Philip Porter could have been twice, not sure, but he was b. 1754 and m. abt 1786 to Nancy Ann Brent b. 1766 so she may have been a 2nd wife, have no idea. They also had a son James b. 8-2-1787 in VA. They were in VA, and went to Taylorsville, Ky around 1804-1810.
Email me personally and we can share more to see if our Porters connect. Thank you Dottie Porter Himes
