Hi, I'm looking for some information on my grandfathers family. I don't have very much to go on. His Name was Walter Edward Porter.
He was born on Aug. 19, 1911. He had a sister named Helen and one named Jane, there may have been more sibblings. As far as I know he grew up somewhere in Kentucky. No one knows his parents.
