The Porter Family - Alabama>Mississippi
Recently, while researching online for information about one of my Porter ancestors, I found a book entitled Some Alabama Pioneers, written by Madge Pettit, on GoogleBooks. Although I was unable to locate the family members for whom I searched, I did learn more about the early Porter family that settled in Lancaster County, Virginia and who migrated first to South Carolina, and then to places in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
