Does anyone have any relation to/interest in Gene Stratton Porter, Jeanette Porter-Meehan, James Leo Meehan I & II, or John Edwin Meehan I-V?

If anyone has any information they'd like to share, I'd love to have it. And if anyone has any questions about the Porter-Stratton-Meehan families, I would be more than happy to answer. Thank you.

I have a cousin Gene Stratton Porter, b. 1923, born and raised in Nocona, Tx. Is this the Gene you are looking for?
I am trying to find our grandfather's, Wm. Thos. Porter, b. in Boonville, Mo., parents. Would you have any information on them?

Gene Stratton Porter (female) - Author of GIRL OF THE LIMBERLOST, LADDIE, and many other books of early 20th century. Home in Geneva, IN, I believe. (Limberlost is a creek that empties into Wabash River near IN/OH line).

I'm interested in knowing her husband's line - Porter.

My Wiley/Porter ancestry on Ohio side of line - Mercer Co., OH 1850 on. Married in Co. Donegal, Ireland 1847.

My paternal great-grandfather four generations removed, Joseph Stratton b. 1788, Sussex County, NJ, is Gene Stratton-Porter's paternal grandfather. William Stratton, b. 1810, a son of Joseph, is my great-grandfather three generations removed and is the elder brother to Gene's father, Mark Stratton. My relationship to Gene is own first cousin four times removed.

I'm interested in corresponding about various topics related to GS-P, her son-in-law James Leo Meehan, and other Stratton family relatives of GS-P who resided in the Los Angeles area at the same time and their descendants. I may be contacted at douglas.stratton@thestrattonfoundation.org and futher information about the foundation is at www.thestrattonfoundation.org
