No, I don't have any family records going that far back. What I do have came from the county marriage records.The censusus are online free but back then they did not list the names of those in the household. There were 3 Porter families in Caroline County in 1790 and more in 1800. In 1790 there was James, Robert and Colliston. Colliston Porter lived near my Permars but they all lived fairly close. In 1800 there was a James Porter Sr and James Porter Esq.Why don't you try looking for a will in the Maryland State Archives online . I found a great deal of information in the will of my gt gt gt gt grandmother, Rachel Permar although did have to wait some time for them to send it and it cost $10 for the copy. Good luck, I know it is a challenge!
