Sunnylou, your Hansford Porter MAY be a descendent of Nicholas Porter and his wife Sarah Hansford. He was a son of Benjamin Porter and Ann... (possibly Campbell). Nicholas died in Wilkes Co., Ga. before 09-Jan-1794. He had several children who also resided in Wilkes co., Ga. Nicholas had a grandson named Charles Hansford Porter (through his son Charles d. 1813 Columbia, Ga., but I have nothing more on this line. I descend from a brother of Nicholas. I've done a lot of research on the Benjamin Porter family. Most of what's on the web and on ancestry trees is incorrect. Be very cautious about the on-line genealogies. A lot of incorrect information is being propagated. If you find you are descended from this family, I'll be happy to share with you, so contact me via this note and I'll contact you.
