Benjamin Porter (I have the initial J.) died July 9, 1849 and is buried in the Elizabeth Chapel Cemetery, Burleson Co. TX (now very overgrown, but still there) He is listed on the 1850 mortality index as dying from bilous fever. The families began their journey in 1845, travelling in the winter to avoid any indian problems, arriving in March 1846. They were to join his brother John W. Porter, but he had died before their arrival. I have quite a bit of information on these families, I am descended from daughter, Agnes Elizabeth who married Richard Tyrus Blacklock.
