I am not sure if this is the same family but my great gpa was James (Jim) Porter, son of John and Rachel and my grandma was Mabel Porter(Franklin) daughter of James and Delia. James had a sister named Willie. My grandpa franklin (Mabel's widower) is who told me about Aunt Willie being his sister (he is currently 92. My family originated from Tennessee/ Arkansas area and resided in oklahoma. Any information we can share would be great.

Thanks

Hello I am Clarice Willis(daughter of Clara Green)daughter of Kittie Porter(sister of James, Willie, susie, Lizzie, Chonie, and Hannah(emma porter(McCullough). We have not been able to verify what happen to John or Rachel (Rowden Porter). We recently went to Eufaula, OK to Evergreen Cemetary because someone had posted of FINDAGRAVE a Rachel Porter with no DOB/DOD. We are just stumped. We did however come in contact with some porters whose mother's name is Rachel Porter (86 years old)recently moved to Eufaula from CA.

I put my updated email. He was born around 1880. My grandmother was Mable Lee Porter (Franklin) I also had an aunt Jean (their sister) that just passed away. There are now only two living siblings for my grandmother.

I believe he may have been born closer to 1890 because John and Rachel were married in 1885 not 100% on that tho

I have a picture of Mabel and Jean that Dorothy sent to me. Also are you saying your gg grandpa James(Mabel's husband known as Jim Porter is related to John Porter how? This is been a question whether Jim Porter and James Porter was 2 different people, John Porter's son or John Porter's brother or neither? This has been such a mystery.
