Surnames: PORTER; IRWIN
No, I am descendant of MOSES PORTER b. abt.1730; m. LYDIA IRWIN and son PHINEAS PORTER moved to Fayette Co. PA from Maryland..

My info on CALEB PORTER comes from GENEALOGICAL AND PERSONAL HISTORY OF FAYETTE COUNTY Jordan and Hardin (New York: Lewis Historical Publc. Co. 1912) 3 vol.:

p. 416

JOHN PORTER born in England 1690 came to America and settled at Baltimore Maryland in 1715

JOHN s/o JOHN b. abt. 1720 at Baltimore; m. NANCY MCKENZIE d/o MOSES MCKENZIE and left eight kids.
CALEB PORTER s/o JOHN born in Maryland abt. 1760; lived at Ellicott Mills near Baltimore; about 1800 came to Pennsylvania where he purchased twelve hundred acres of land in Westmoreland Co. on which he built a stone house; two of his sons JAMES and JOSEPH PORTER served in Union Army during Civil War.

Also. what is the full citation for the "Frank Porter book" to which you referred, please?
