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 firstname.lastname@example.org
. 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).
