Surnames: Porter, McGinley
Hi, My name is Jon Posey and I am descended from a Porter family from Burt, Ireland as well. I have several family traditional storys but not many facts.
I do know that my 2nd great grandmother, Elizabeth Ann Porter was born in Burt on 12 Aug 1812 and died in Houlton, Maine USA on 06 Feb 1901, She and her husband George McGinley came to America in 1844 and settled in Cary,s Mill, aroostook County, Maine. Elizabeth Porter McGinley,s father and mother were John (Jack) Porter and Sarah McKnight. Other childern of John and Sarah Porter were John Norris, b.1815, Sarah b. c1817 and Ann or Anna Porter. John Porter, father of Elizabeth Porter Mcginley is susposed to be the son of a unknown Porter, and grandson of a David Porter from scotland. David bought farms in Ireland for each of his sons, David, William, John and the unknown father of John Porter who was the father of Elizabeth P. McGinley. I hope this makes sence. Do you have any possible connections with this family? Please contact me Jon Posey
