Well, this is new information and may be the answer to our conundrum. Sarah Adeline Phillips married Andrew Jackson Porter about 1857 since her first son by him, Milford Randall Porter was born in 1858, followed by Andrew Jackson Porter in 3 Jun 1861. Some reports indicate that Andrew Jackson Porter died of wounds suffered in Civil War. But the mystery begins here when only 16 months later she has the first child by the unknown Porter (if this is true). Seabern Porter was born17 Oct 1862, Dolly or Luddie in 1864, William Patterson in 1866 and Adelia or Bobbie Porter in 1871.The 1870 Chickasaw Co. MS census lists "Cebern," a younger sister Dolly, and a younger brother William all by themselves, two houses from Dr. Lem Porter. Milford Randall I believe to be named for a doctor in Fayette Co, AL(Dr. M. (Milford) Randal). One DNA test seemed to point to Milford Randall and Andrew Jackson as children of Andrew Jackson Porter but Seab and William Patterson from another man. Sarah Adeline Phillips married 3. Joseph Nichols.
