Glenn, I do not have absolute proof, but believe my Porter line came from Londonderry, Ireland. Whoever the first Porter was in my line (probably Hugh Porter) came to the New World in the 1740s and was in Pennsylvania. He ultimately moved to Washington County, Pennsylvania. I have not been able to document the link between my Porters in Virginia and North Carolina and those that came from Pennsylvania. The only evidence is my connection through DNA tests to Andrew Paxton Porter.
I tested to the 67 level. I have a few Porters that are in my group, but only Andrew Paxton Porter is a close connection.
Let me know how I can help you.
