I do not have this book but know of people who do and some of the info is incorrect in it so beware. I come from this line of Porter's and have been re-searching them for 15 years. I have 36,000 prople in my tree and growing related in this Porter line. It's wise to do your own searching as I have found just because its in a book doesnt mean its correct.You are correct about Edward he married Mary Cowthcher. Edward's parents were John Porter & Alice Nash both born in Tappenhall, North Clains, Worcester, Eng.
