I am looking for information on my GGG grandparents. His name was James N. Porter, born around 1815 in Bladen County, NC. Wife's name Nancy, born around 1820 I think in Bladen County. Wondering who their parents were. Also looking for any information on Dovie Walker. She was my grandmother on my father's (Luther Porter) side. She didn't raise him, and he never talked about her. As far as I know she was also born in Bladen County. My father was born in Kelly, NC (Bladen County) in 1917. He was the son of William Porter and Dovie Walker, who were not married. My father was raised by Dovie's sister. Her name was Sally Walker Benson. Tracing my ancestors back on my father's side has been like looking for needle in a haystack. Thanks.
