Surnames: Porter, Bowie, Howie, Howard, Forbes
I'm searching for information about my ancestor, Hugh Porter. He was born June 12, 1791 in Abbeville, SC. According to Bibles and wills, we have concluded his siblings to be Charles B., William R., Andrew Springer, Mary, Rebecca Frances Porter Howie (Caldwell Howie), Cynthia Porter Howard (Stephen Howard), and Ann E. Porter Forbes (Arthur Forbes).
Hugh married Sarah C. Bowie (b. 8/22/1793) on Sept. 19, 1814. They and several other Porter families moved to Lauderdale County, Alabama around 1825. Hugh and Sarah and many are their descendants are buried in the Portertown Cemetery near Lexington, Alabama. We believe that Sarah may be a sister of Charles Wesley Bowie who also moved to Lauderdale County about this same time. She has a son, grandson, and other descendants named Charles Wesley. My father, Charles Wesley Porter, has Hugh and Sarah's family Bible and most of the information on all of their descendants.
One older family researcher has Hugh's parents as John and Mary A.E. Porter. Another non-family researcher believes the parents to be Andrew and Rebecca Burney Porter.
Does anyone have any information on this line of Porters?
