I am currently searching for any information on Benjamin Porter born in Hebron, CT. around 1813. It is assumed that his parents were Bela Porter (1782-1818) and Mary Polly Strong (1787-1859) although I am still trying to solidify that link. According to the Barbour Collection, he married Mary Jane Gray in 1846 and disappears. I found a Benjamin Porter in Scotts Valley, CA in the 1860 census with a William Porter Gray, perhaps his nephew? He apparently had 2-3 children with Mary Jane Gray, one being Henry Benjamin Porter who later relocated to Sag Harbor, NY, who was my great great grandfather. Any and all information would be great.
