No one in the family knows who she was or where she came from only that she and John Porter were possibly married. He would have been 24 in 1783.
He was in Pa, NJ, NY, Va, SC and other places during the Rev. War.
She was possibly b abt 1759/62 also a youngster and I don't know where she was from.
Some say Ct but if that is the Mary and John Porter he would have been not in his teens but much younger and that John died after 1783.
I have the history of John in the Rev War that Todd Braisted found in the Archives and in England.
The last time I saw my Mum's cousin, George Porter, he was still trying to find where John came from and to find Mary's last name. His grandfather was their son John Jr..George has since died as he was in his early 90's then in the early 2000.
I used to go to NB every year since I was 4 yrs old til the WW2 and then again after the war even when I got married every year and just up to 2yrs ago. Always felt like I was going home. Hopefully again next year and to go to Nova Scotia where my Dad's folks are from.
