Mary Jo, I am also related to the Allegany Co. Porters. I
have the early history by Frank Porter, but only the first five
generations. You have not gone back far enough in your
Porter line to link up with any of the early Porters. This family
goes back to Thomas Porter & Margaret Strude Porter in
the late 1600's. England. Their son John Porter came to Balto. in 1710 and then Carroll Co where he died. Three of his son came to Allegany Co. Md. before 1770 and served
in Rev. War from Bedford Co. Pa. A portrait of Squire Jack
Porter hangs in the Nat. Museum of Art in Wash. D.C. They
have a nice history if you can get farther back to give me a
clue. Jim Ryan
