Surnames: Dodson, Anderson, Porters.
Porter family grew in Mississippi, Peter Porter was born 1824, Judge Porter born 1874, Adelle Porter born 1905. There are living offsprings, we're Anderson's, direct offsprings of Arthur and Adelle Anderson. Judge was her father, Peter was her grandfather, Hannah was her mother and was married to her dad Judge Porter. Hannah's mother was -------- Dodson. Can someone support me in finding living offsprings.

Ancestry.com says that Judge PORTER, b. Jan. 1879 [3 in 1880, b. '77?], MS, m. Hannah DODSON, b. ca. 1880, MS.

Ancestry.com: Judge PORTER, 42, died 17 Mar. 1916, Jefferson Co., AL, bu. Thomas.

Tombstone in Forestlawn Cemetery: Adell ANDERSON (13 Nov. 1905, - 30 Jan. 2006). She was born in Holmes Co., MS, & d. 30 Jan. 2006, Detroit, Wayne, MI. This agrees with the Social Security Death Index.

Have you tried to get an obituary for Adell? That should name survivors.
