There is a Jospeh PORTER (b ca 1805) - PA who seems to be shown in the United States Census for 1850 in Lagrange Township, Jefferson County, OH, at age 45, and appears again in the United States Census for 1860 in Wells Township, Jefferson County, OH, at age 51. In both of these enumerations, he seems to appear with a wife named Ann, Anne or Anna.
In 1860, Anne PORTER, age 59, is shown in Wells Township, Jefferson County, OH, but Joseph no longer appears.
One source has a Joseph PORTER marrying an Anna McAdams in Jefferson County on 12 Nov 1829. This asserted marriage date closely conforms to the date one would expect based upon the ages of the children shown in the household in 1850 and 1860.
Children appear to be:
Elizabeth J. PORTER (b ca 1833)
Nancy PORTER (b ca 1837)
William PORTER (b ca 1839)
Mary A. PORTER (b ca 1842)
Elizabeth PORTER (b ca 1844)
Thomas B. PORTER (b 23 Dec 1848)
Robert F. PORTER (b ca 1850)
Albert PORTER (b ca 1851)
Robert F. PORTER and Albert PORTER may be the same child with the name misspelled in a the 1850 Census enumeration.
Can anyone identify the identity of the PARENTS of either Joseph PORTER or Anna McADAMS? Can anyone furnish any additional information about any of Joseph and Anna McAdams PORTER's children?
Any information would be greatly appreciated!
