Searching for any info on my Great Grandfather, Horace Greeley Porter. He passed fairly young, my Grandmother was a littler girl at the time. I know he was the first barber in the Poulan Georgia area. He was married to Betsie Walden.

Thank you for the info. If you happen to come across his parents name that would be great. His daughter Mary Alice was my Grandmother. I know next to nothing about his side of the family. Again, thank you.

Hi,

I live in Poulan and Horace Greeley is also my great-great grandfather. Mary Alice was my grandfathers sister. I saw this post on a google search and was wondering if you were still looking for information?

Hi Teresa, I am still looking for info. My research goes in spurts! Lol. My Aunt Janie told me Uncle John had done some geneology work. Unfortunately, everytime ive seen Uncle John in the last 5 yrs its been @ a funeral. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Im sure we've met, Maureen is my mom. If not we should! Thank you in advance! Mary

Teresa, did you get copies of the info I left Mr. John?
Mary, I am not sure Teresa has the info I found on Greely's Porter line on her tree yet.
so, go to my Ford Family of Worth Co. tree and follow your Porter line going back
to Joseph N Porter (1775-1825) and Rose Taliaferro(1757-1819) and beyond.

Info is pretty solid thru Rose and Joseph, beyond that I have not researched the data
myself, but seems to be pretty well accepted.

When you get to my Ford tree, search for Horace Greely Porter, then go from there.
I am not related to the Porters myself, but I dug into them for your uncle John.
