Hi Patricia,

I am unrelated to this family as far as I know. My family descended from John Porter of Windsor, CT and Felsted, County Essex, England.

Anyone with access to the book, "Yarmouth Nova Scotia Genealogies Transcribed from the Yarmouth Herald" by George S. Brown, will find the following on page 184:

"PORTER, JONATHAN, son John Tardy, m. 1853, Aug. 29, Mary Jane Killam, dau. James 1st, Lake George; d. 1886, March 22, and had:

1859, Oct. 9, Clinton Burr, m., 1884, Oct. 17, Ida MacKenzie, dau. John; d. 1893.

1860, Dec. 22, Byron Depew, m ., 1895, March, Sarah Gullison, dau. Capt. Benjamin; lost at sea 1896, Sept.

1864, Jany. 16, Martha Lindsay Ross Webster, d. 1865.

1867, Sept. 20, Sandford Lester.

1869, Feby. 6, Emery Whipple; d. 1869, March.

1871, Nov. 8, Janet Maud, m., 1895, Nov. 6, Ralph T. Harris.

1874, Aug. 9, Mary Ellen; d. 1897, Feby. 13, unm.

1876, April 28, Julia Florence."

Obviously this child (Emery Whipple Porter) lived only a month, but on page 190 is the following:

"PORTER, JEREMIAH, son Hezediah 4th, m. (1st) 1863, July 3, Bethiah A. Vickery, dau. Jeremiah; (2d) 1868, Dec. 24, Elizabeth Crosby, dau. Samuel, of Deerfield, and had:

1864, April 30, HANNAH MAY, m., 1895, Dec. 3, Dr. J. H. Harris; d. 1897, Jan. 8.

1865, Sept. 4, ELIZABETH CROSBY, m., 1885, Jan. 6, Benjamin Crosby.

1867, Feb. 17, George Franklin.

1869, Oct. 26, Edson Arthur, m., 1894, Dec. 21, Annie W. Crowell, dau. John P.

1871, May 9, Bethiah Luella, d. 1878, Jan. 12.

1873, March 31, AARON CROSBY, m., 1896, June 6, Josephine Roberts, dau. Thomas W.

1875, June 15, Emory Ellsworth.

1877, May 18, Samuel Adelbert.

1879, March 14, Bertha Luella, d. 1883, Jan. 9.

1881, Feb. 25, Frederick Ernest."

These are extensive genealogies, 762 pages, with another 184 pages of index for a total of 947 pages.
