my african american ancestry is from the hinton or union area - it has been extremely difficult to get any information - james albert porter was my great grandfather - i guestimate that he was born around 1825-35 - one of his sons, my grandfather, john a. porter, was born in hinton or union 1856(-1929); james was married to winifred ross (her father was caucasian); john had at least one sibling, a brother, albert born in 1858(-1910) - i just cannot seem to get beyond these few facts...does anyone know of any ross family in the area...or possible a porter family (the last name had to come from someone...) thanks
