Robert Porter, 1813 - 1881

Hi! Any help I could get would be awesome. My 3rd Great Grandfather, Robert Porter was born Jan 5, 1813 in Ireland (we think) He came to America by way of Philadelphia PA in 1821 with his mother - Martha or perhaps sister. The name of the ship was the Electra. He married a Margaret Griggs and they settled in Beetown WI. I have the line from there forward. My problem is trying to find his father - I have no name. We have been told they lived in Donegal Ireland, but I am not convinced of that. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks!
