I have had a brick wall for about 10 years now in regards to a step sister of my great grandfather Jesse o Burgess. Her name was Caroline Porter, we knew her parents were a Thomas Porter and Catherine Pixler. Catherine Pixler is my 2nd GGrandmother.
We have had no info as Thomas Porter died early, but I have been given a photo of a Dr. Porter...it states underneath Dr. Wilson Porter brother to Caroline Porter Robey.
Here is what I have....
Ohio, Marriages, 1803-1900
about Wilson Porter
12 Feb 1834
The photo taken of Wilson Porter states "Caroline Porter Robey's brother" Dr. Wilson Porter, Springfield, Illinois.
Help please! this is the first time I have had ANY tidbits!
I show the Porter family in 1850, but no Wilson...'
1850 United States Federal Census
about Rebecca Porter
Home in 1850:
Decatur, Washington, Ohio
Rebecca Porter 25
Isaac Porter 13
Wm F Porter 10
Sophia Porter 7
Dennis W Porter 5
If I could just find a grave or an obit for Dr. Wilson Porter, or his wife....maybe that would help....
Thanking you in advance,
Sandy Burgess McClay
