Looking for anything and everything on my great-grandfather, John Little Porter, b. 1866 (don't know where). He married Missouri Elizabeth Moore about 1889 in SC and they had a child James Vernon Porter in 1890, but John Little Porter left family in SC about 1897 to work in the oil fields of TX. Any help appreciated!!

Thanks for your response. We have quite a bit of information on the decendents of Hugh and Margaret Porter, but not much on the Tennent family. We know Hugh Porter came to the U.S. (Baltimore) about 1818 from County Down Ireland, but have no info about where in County Down. Would be happy to share info.

I have Zilmer's in my family from the Steuben/Boscobel area too. You mentioned a Nickerson, I have an Evalyn M. Nickerson that married Charles E. Zilmer. Do you have these people in your family?

We have no record of a Evalyn Nickerson or a Zilmer. We have several Nickerson's resulting from the marriage of Margaret Porter to Marcus Franklin Nickerson abt 1860. They had 8 children, but we have no later history on any of them.
