In Reply to: CSRA (GA) Porterfields by Eric S. Porterfield of 798

Almost without exception, all Georgia Porterfields are descendants of David Porterfield, Sr. and Sarah (Nunn) Porterfield who settled in the present-day Madison County, GA area in 1787. You can see the information in our family research group's central database either on our Web page, URL directly to the Porterfield pages:, or on RootsWeb's World Connect Project, URL: The GEDCOM data posted on the World Connect Project is always the most current in our database.

For instance, our database contains a James Early Porterfield, born 1920 in Covington, GA who married an Ethel Bacon. Could this be your James Earl Porterfield, Sr.?

If so, you will find his ancestors all the way back to David Porterfield, Sr. and beyond on the World Connect Project. However, there currently is nothing about any descendants of James Early Porterfield and Ethel Bacon. If this is your line, we would very much like to have information about their descendants to the present day.

Should this not be your Porterfield line, if you can provide me with any more of your east Georgia Porterfield relatives' names, I may be able to guide you to the correct ancestor.

Please feel free to contact me by e-mail if you have questions.
