John Porter, Hugh Porter

Hello,
I'm searching for information about my ancestor, Hugh Porter. He was born June 12, 1791 in Abbeville, SC. His parents were John and Elizabeth Norwood Porter. His father's will was recorded Dec. 20, 1803, in Abbeville and discusses his 661 acre plantation in Winston Co, Orangeburge District "near the white pond lying on pond branch and Yarrow Branch." John and Elizabeth's children were John , Samuel Norwood, Hugh, Charles B., William R., Andrew Springer, Mary, Rebecca Frances Porter Howie, Cynthia Porter Howard, and Ann E. Porter Forbes.
Hugh married Sarah C. Bowie (b. 8/22/1793) on Sept. 19, 1814. They and several other Porter families moved to Lauderdale County, Alabama around 1825. Hugh and Sarah and many are their descendants are buried in the Portertown Cemetary near Lexington, Alabama. My father, Charles Wesley Porter, has Hugh and Sarah's family Bible and most of the information on all of their descendants.
Do you have any information on this line of Porters?
Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Janie Porter Gomillion
