AL: Mary Jane Halbert & Martha Ellen Halbert

Can anyone please help identify the parents and any additional lineage as possible of Mary Jane Halbert and Martha Ellen Halbert of the Lauderdale Co. or Limestone Co. area of Alabama.
The Mary Jane Halbert I'm enquiring of married a Porter of which I can't place a first name to as of yet. She is buried in the Wallace Cem. of Eastern Lauderdale Co., AL. Her tombstone puts her date of birth at August 13, 1837 and death at February 13, 1918. She was the mother of Lorena Rose Porter that married William Samuel Chandler.
The Martha Ellen Halbert I'm enquiring of married John Albert Haraway of Rogersville, AL. She is buried in the Liberty Cemetery in Rogersville, Lauderdale Co., AL. Her tombstone puts her date of birth at September 9, 1839 and death at November 23, 1888.
I was told years ago by my Great grandmother Eula Bedingfield, the daughter of Lorena Rose Porter and William Samuel Chandler, that her grandmother Mary Jane Halbert married a Porter, of which she thought his first name was Richard, and that Mary Jane Halbert was the sister of Martha Ellen Halbert.
I've yet to be able to find the parents of these two to prove the relation. If anyone could please help in making this connection, it would be greatly appreciated.
