Hi, Good to here from you, I am Cullen Edward Porter Jr. born in Chicago on 1/7/1957 and living in the Chicago south suburb of Midlothian, IL since 1962. I have a B.S. degree and was working in hotel maintenance since 1994.
My father was Cullen Edward Porter Sr. (1922-1994) who worked in sheet-metal labor from 1055 to 1987.
His mother was Pearl Mae Litteral (1898-1972)
she was the only grandparent I ever met. She had a nickname of "MAA-MAW" and had 10 children total 5 boys and 5 girls. the 4 oldest are "Porters" (Carol and Marie are still living, Jake died in 1995) and the last 6 are "Hinkles" (Lois, Catherine, Bill "BEBOE", Lydia and Clyde are still alive, Troy "TED" died in 2004).
and her mother was Lydia McCoy (1876 ?-1967 ?)
She was the only great grandparent I ever met.We called her "NANO"
I am told that before Lydia married John Litteral and had 4 children, she had Pearl first by a Jessie Duncan out of wedlock.
If you know anything about Pearl's real father let me know. also I would love to have those pictures of Asa and I will send you some of me and Pearl's children. Lois' son Ron Sutton has been living here also since 1994.
I have been trying to find out if Everett was still alive, Ron, BEBOE and I seen him last in 1995 at his home in Ashland, KY. where is he living now?
Give me his address and I will send some pictures to him.
I was also told by my father that Everett had a picture of Elizabeth Ann Rutherford (1837-1928 ?) who was Lydia's mother and was better known as "betsy ann" McCoy.
Give me a listing of Everett's family (I think he had about 7 children?) I took some home movies at his house in 1995 and I could also send you a copy of that.
Thanks for the response, my e-mail is Beboe@comcast.net
