In Wilkes County in Joseph Porter's time, the head of household was exempt from paying poll tax upon reaching the age of sixty. Joseph was taxed for polls until 1797 when records show no polls listed. That being the case Joseph Porter was born in 1737. I would love to know where he was born and the name of his parents. Would you know?
I descend from Francis thru his son, William. I would like info on Melvin and Camelia. If you desie a copy of my research on Joseph and some of his descendants send your postal address to: firstname.lastname@example.org
. It's free in exchange for your Melvin and Camelia info.
