I'm also looking for my Porter ancestors. I'm looking for the parents of James Porter born 1803 somewhere in Pennsylvania. On one of the census records I've seen he stated that his father was born in Pa. James married Rachel Waugh about 1823 and died in 1860 in Lawrence Co. Pa. The following are his children:
1/Margaret C., Born 1823 New Wilminton, Married David R. Imbrie
2/John Waugh, Born 1825 New Wilmington, Married Matilda Boyer
3/Francis Curtis, Born 1834 Pa., Married 1/Mary A. 2/ Sarah A.
4/Sarah Jane,Born 1829 Pa., Married James M. Thompson
5/Eliza L., Born 1831 Pa.
6/Rebecca J., Born 1835 Pa. Married James R. Bell
7/Rachel Lorinda, Born 1837 Married Amander Pollock
If anyone has any information on the parents of James Porter born 1803 somewhere in Pennsylvania I would love to hear from you.
