My grandfather was from Kentucky - he was
Henry Porter and came, I believe, from
Logansport, Kentucky. He had a brother named
Walker. Married Zetta Hearn King and settled
in Cincinnati. He managed a hotel for a time. Does this information connect to any-
one else's named Porter?

I have a Felix Walker Porter born 1815 in Ky. He died in 1855 in Indiana. He was married to Nancy McKim on 1/28/1836. She died 1843 in Indiana.
His father (Alexander M. Porter) was born in NC in 1760 and died in Indiana in 1839 or 40.
Would love to find a connection. Have been looking for relatives of Alexander M. Porter Contact me via e-mail (Altajack@aol.com) with subject of: Porter Ancestors.

Alta, I have a 3rd great grandfather, Felix Walker Porter, born KY ca 1815, died Spencer County, Indiana. He was my grandmother's mother's father. His daughter was Fidella Porter (my 3rd great-grandmother). I do not know any of Felix Walker Porter's siblings - tho I have worked for years on this. Do have a lot of Porter "This and That" from Spencer Co. IN and other Indiana Counties. Did your Porter's have any relations in Ohio Co. KY. That is where it is believed Fidella Porter met Felix Walker Porter, or perhaps he was visiting in Spencer Co. Would love to exchange information with you.

It's funny how the name Walker Porter keeps popping up in these searches. My grand father was named Walker Porter. He was born in Floyd County Ky. My family also has a connection to North Carolina.

This is also a great grandfather of mine. His daughter Jane (Born Ida Jane) recently passed at the age of 103. So whomever you are, you are my cousin. I have always been looking for more info regarding Henry Porter and learn about the hotel he worked for and find out the hotel name. Also i heard he had one wooden leg from getting shot at the hotel. I would love to know more about that story if its known. Looking forward to a response =)

Henry is my grandmothr's father, so would be my great grandfather. Zetta had met him working at the hotel. She had 2 daughters from prior marriage named Martha and Leola and had a son named john and daughter my grandmother born Ida Jane (she hated name ida and dropped it and went by Jane her entire life) Jane lived to be 103 and her husband Carl lived to 99. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I have had a hard time learning about Henry so would love to find more.
