After the Civil War my gggrandfather, John A Porterfield, came to Texas with his two younger brothers, Billy and Gus. John married a woman from Corriscana, TX and they settled on a farm in Johnson County, TX. This lady died and John married her sister Margaret Squyers, also known as Squires. John then moved to Nemo, Johnson County, TX and then to Rising Star, TX. His brother Billy was also in Rising Star but I do not have nay records of Gus.
