I am tending to agree with you. My research on Benjamin Clark Porter was a backward trace from Burleson County, Texas where I located my wife's g-grandfather, John Wilson Porter living with his mother Matilda Porter at Chances Prarie in the 1850 US Census. She listed her birth place as Kentucky. I then found the marriage record of Matilda Wilson and Benjamin Porter in the Butler County marriage records and I knew that he was the one. However, other information on this Porter line came from another researcher who had worked down from KY and his widow and children in Burleson County TX. Now, he may have had a wife prior to Matilda but I agree with you, it was not Betsey Ewing. A look at my Benjamin's wifes and children from my data base show that he had a son born in 1822 by his first wife...she must have died giving birth because he married Matilda in 1824 and they had their first child in 1825. There just does not seem to be enough time in there to fit another wife and two children.
