Welcome to the FAMILY porter history web site

Hi Ron,     I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have concerning the Porter family.       I have never been to Henry Porter's homestead nor Rhoda's. I had not known where they were until recently.       My grandfather (Charles) was born about 2 miles north of Covington in a sod house according to Veryl. I suspect Susanna, Minnie & possibly Clark were born there  as well. In my notes I have them moving to the Orlando area in about 1903, then to the Clear Creek farm about 1906. If this is correct then Lucille, Pauline & Franklin would have been born there. Frank & family moved to Yale in 1918 & I think Anna Maude was born there. After Frank moved to Yale, Charley & Kate, who had wed in May of that year moved onto the farm & Meryl (Tag) & Veryl were born there in 1919. Charley then moved to an oil field near Covington where Thelma was born in March, 1920. Charley later moved back to the Clear Creek farm in the late 20's or early 30's, living there until moving to the Glencoe area. I have visited the Clear Creek farm, there is nothing there but a hole where the cellar once was.    I am having trouble attaching files to my e-mails for some reason. Will sent photos when I can.............. Later, Jim (Jim Porter, December 28, 2005)
