Does anyone have any knowledge of Charley. He was born in or near Dayton between 1857 and 1859 in February to Susan (Blum.Bloom/Bluhm?) and John Porter.
He was run over by a train in May of 1884 in Madison County, Illinois. He married Viola Shelton in 1879 in Effingham, Illinois. They had four children, Lloyd Eugene who died in infancy, William Earl 1881, Gertrude Adelle 1883 and Madge Elizabeth 1884. Viola later married William Krapp in 1893 and they moved to Chicago.
Charles is said to have had an Aunt Bessie Law and an Aunt Selbie (sp) Seibert both living in the Greenville, Ohio area. Any information you may have on any of these individuals would be greatly appreciated.
Madge Elizabeth was my grandmother and she never new her father.
