      After running into a tall, wide wall on Mom's side of the tree, I
      thought I'd give Dad's a try.
      My grandmother was Ethel PORTER Goff. I belive her parents were Willy
      and Savannah PORTER. Willy's parents may have been Alexander and Molly
      PORTER. I'd like to find the names of all of Granny Ethel's brothers
      and sisters, and see how many Porter cousins there are out there. Is
      anyone working on the Porter line? I'd like to compare data with you.

          The only other Veachs that were in NE AL in the 1860s, 1870s and 1880s where in Cherokee Co. However Sarah is not listed there in 1860 and no Sarah of her age

            The only other Veachs that were in NE AL in the 1860s, 1870s and 1880s where in Cherokee Co. However Sarah is not listed there in 1860 and no Sarah of her age + or - 5 years anyplace in AL 1850 or 1860. Makes me wonder if she was Native American, many of them avoided the census taker.

            Sarah 22 above is Enoch's wife Sarah Veach. Martha J. maybe a Veach also don't know.

              Here's what I have on the Porter's. Most of the information came from
              Daddy Fred or one of his nieces. She is a granddaughter of Lula Mae
              Porter Miles. I can't remember her name, but will look it up in my
              notes. I also have more info on the Lewis line, if you're interested.

                  I"m a "Porter" cousin, sorta... hahah. Savannah Lewis was a sister to my gfather Benjamin Franklin Lewis. Savannah & Benj's parents are Pryor Lee Lewis & Mary Elizabeth Bowlin.
                  PS - I work with Bueford, and have corresponded with Teresa Carpenter & Cathy Dean about the family. Would love to reconnect with all my cousins in this family.
                  Also, would like info on Savannah's sister who married the Ward in Scottsboro.

                      My name is Charles Boyd and I have asked for your help before and gotten
                      great results.
                      You gave me some information about E.L. Southerland and Bettie Dickson. I
                      think you said that we might be related through the Southerland family. My
                      grandmother was Ida Mae Southerland. She was the daughter of E.L. Southerland
                      and Bettie.
                      Hopefully you can help me again. My question is when my GGgrandfather
                      John Boyd died in Scottsboro Nov 1864. He had 3 children under the age of 21.
                      Two sons William,and Robert and a daughter Julia. The daughter went to live
                      with her older sister Emma Brooks and A.W. Brooks. However I do not know
                      what happened to the sons. William was abt 17 and Robert was 11. I did not
                      find Robert Boyd (my Ggrandfather) until the 1880 Jackson Co census. He was
                      married to Mary Waller (my Ggrandmother). William was married to Elizabeth
                      Huey in Madison Co (Gurley) 1870. I never found William Boyd on a census he
                      died in 1879. Sure do appreciate any help.
                      Thank you

                        Many thanks to Tonia and Joy for supplying me with info on Granny
                        Porter's family. Sounds like there are a bunch of us "Cousins" out
                        there. I work with one of John Will's sons (John) and he's sorta the
                        reason I got interested in working on this branch. That and the big,
                        wide wall I mentioned earlier. Sound like this was a good move! It's a
                        shame that I know so little about my family.

                        Tonia,
                        Do you know all of the children of Willy and Savannah? I have Lee,
                        Willie, Grandma Ethel, Anna, Fred, Martha Lucy and Ben. Is John Will a
                        son or a grandson?
