Looking for parent/family information about Benjamin Franklin Porter born in Erie County, New York Aug 1831 and died in Iowa sometime after 1900.
I know that he married Levina E. Brown (b. 1831 in Erie County, New York and d. Iowa about 1897) and had Benjamin Franklin b. 1850 New York, John Porter b. Sep 1853 New York, Smith A. Porter b. 1854 New York, Adelbert A. b. Jul 1858 New York, and Charles E. b. 1860 New York.
Supposedly his father was from France and his mother was from Canada but I cannot find any other information about him...and any other information would be greatly appreciated!
I am also looking for any information about his sons Smith A. or John.
