Hi Duane -
Thanks so much for writing me about a possible connection between our great great grandparents. This is the first clue I have gotten about these ancestors and I am thrilled to think there were other family members......you just made my day!!!
Where did you find these property records with Ishmael buying and selling property to George Porter? Do you have information on Fanny's family (ie: brothers, sisters and parents) and if indeed that was her true legal name.
I would love to discuss this information and find out what you know about the Porters in the 1800s and before. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
to discuss further.
