I am trying to find information regarding my ancestors. So far, my earliest known ancestor is Robert Porter.
Robert Porter married Elizabeth Allen on June 21, 1836 in Coles County, IL.
The couple had four children: Josephus (b. May 21, 1837; married Melissa Giger; served in the Civil War in the 117 Reg't Illinois Infantry); Susan (b. 1839; married Wesley Edwards); Sarah (b. 1842; married James Anderson); and Robert M. (b. April 14, 1845-d. April 11, 1915; married Mary Issac on March 10, 1870 in Madison Co. IL.)
If anyone has any greater detail about any of these individuals or their ancestors (or can link their family to mine), I'd love to hear it.
Thank you very much!
