Have traced my family tree back to my ggggg-grandparents Joseph Porter, Sr. and Sarah Reynolds in Wilkes Co., NC. I have not been able to establish a provable birth date for Joseph, but his will was probated in 1820. (Sarah was the daughter of John Reynolds and Sarah Jenkins and was born in VA. The Reynolds settled on the Yadkin River and Mulberry Creek and have been traced back to Christopher Reynolds born in 1530 in Kent County, England.) Although only three children were mentioned in Joseph Porter, Sr's will, I have been informed that Joseph Porter, Sr. and Sarah Reynolds had 11 children with the following approximate birth dates: Francis, 1782; Joseph Jr, 1784; Lois, 1786; James, 1788; Sarah, 1790; William, 1792; Maugretter (Molly) 1794; Elizabeth, 1796; Mary, 1798; Jane, 1800; Nancy, 1882. I am looking for other researchers of this Wilkes County Porter Line.

To those who stem from this line, I have been on vacation doing some research in Wilkes County -- still haven't been able to go back any further on Joseph Porter, Sr. Did find a copy of his will (1820) and other information on Porters in Wilkes County. Want to exchange information with fellow researchers on this line. You can contact me direct at ilohiller@aol.com. My line stems from their son Joseph Porter, Jr., to James, to Willborn C, to William Francis, to Troy Vernon, to William Hurshel Porter (my father).
