In Reply to: John Alexander Porterfield by Jerry Sherrill of 798

Jerry, when I was a girl, growing up in Central Texas, my father (Frank Lane, whose father was Thomas Howard of Ft. Deposit, AL) met a man named Billy Porterfield, who was in charge of the Waco Zoo. My dad & Billy always thought they were related, but didn't know how. I'd be interested if you are of Billy's line; I'd also be interested in knowing if you're able to trace your line back to Butler or Lowndes Co., AL.
