I am searching for info on family of Joseph Porter. I found this written in a book called "History of Alleghany County"

Joseph Porter, who was a farmer and stock-dealer, married Mary Corcoran, and became the father of four sons and three daughters. Andrew C., the second son, was born in 1801, in Pickaway County, Ohio, and became a farmer. He married Sarah McQuintie, and to them were born twelve children, of whom six sons and one daughter are now living. Andrew died in 1885, his wife in 1883. Since 1813 the family have been identified with Allegheny County,PA., Andrew having come to this county when twelve years of age.

I have info on decendants of Andrew C. Porter. I have his wife as Sarah Quinter-- this is on her tombstone in Homewood Cemetary in Pittsburg, Pa. I have names of their children but am interested in finding out about Andrew's Parents, Joseph and Mary from Ohio.
Thank You.
Carolyn Porter

I am still looking for the parents of James Porter born 1803 some where in Pennsylvania. His wife was Rachel Waugh born 1795 in Pennsylvania. James and Rachel both died in Lawrence County Pennsylvania. James death was in 1860.
Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
