I am looking for info on the ancestors of Joshua c. Porter, b.3 Nov. 1806, d. 29 Oct. 1891 m. Mallisse Massie, b. 13 June 1809, d. 22 March 1848 m. 1 Jan. 1827. They were born and married in PA. Mallisse died on the way from PA to OH. Married Phoebe, last name unknown. Phoebe was b.25 Oct.1819, d. 6 July 1888. His son Samuel was b. 24 May 1829, d.in 1917. Samuel married Laura Jane Artist, b. about 1837, d. 13 Oct. 1914. They were married about 1862, in Monroe County, OH. They moved to Wayne County, IL. I am particularly interested in info about Laura Jane Artist and Phoebe, but also Joshua Porter and who his parents were and where they were from. Laura Jane was said to be full blood Native American. Thank you. Mary (me2613@hotmail.com)

I know you are looking for ancestors of Joshua Porter, however do you know if Joshua had any siblings? In particular a sister by the name of Sycha? Sycha Porter was born in 1804 in Vermont and married a Samuel Fales. If they were siblings then I have the name of their parents and some other information on the Porter Family line that has some clues on additional ancestors.

Hi, Sorry, I don't know if they were siblings or not. I know he went from PA to OH then his son, Samuel, went from OH to IL. I will check what I have at home and see if it has any other info and let you know. Mary

I am a decendant of Joshua Porter. Unfortunately, I do not have any info of his ancestors.

Can you tell me, is Samuel the son of Phoebe or Mallisse. Samuel was born in OH, but that would make Phoebe 10 years old when he was born. In your posting you said Mallisse died on the to OH from PA. Since I am a decendent of Samuel, I want to make sure I have the right mother.

Thank you!

Sheri, I have to check my Porter stuff. I don't have a computer at home, so I'll check it and email you what I find, or if you email me your snail mail address, I'll copy what I have and mail it to you. I don't have much on Laura Jane Artist, but quite a bit on the Porter family. Where do you fit in?

Then my father Moore and mother Boren still living.

Where do you fit in? I have an old picture of Mattie Porter that my grandmother was in. What line did you come down?

I have a Joshua Porter that I am researching, that is my great great grandfather, who I am named after (born 1870, died 1965). His wife was Hattie Hallet (m.1890). He came over with his parents John & Sarah Wasson Porter. John and Sarah also came over with his brother Joshua and his wife Anne and their families. They came from Kells, Ireland to Castle Garden, in New York City in 1882 on the steamship "Helvetia". I think that my great-great grandfather's Joshua's uncle Joshua might be the one your looking for (it's seems that 1806-1891 would be about when he lived). The information I have says Joshua and Anne came over with their children, but I don't have any of the names.

Your great grandfather was my great uncle. I remember him well. Josh was the son of Sara and John. John's brother Joshua settled in the Syracuse area.
