Porterfield of Donnegall, Ireland/PA/OH

  of 797

I'm on a desperate search for the ancestors of Thomas W. Porterfield b Jan 5 1800 in Mercersburg, PA d November 16, 1887 Belpre, Washington Co. Ohio

he Married Mary Warren, d/ of Fredericus Warren & Barbara Noel. They were all of Adams Co, PA. Mary was b on April 30, 1811 and died March 17, 1892 Belpre, Washington Co, Ohio.

One source claimed Thomas's parents were James Porterfield & Jane Sprawl of Donnegall Ireland. James died abt 1844. I can not find information to confirm this. Mary and Thomas were married in Jefferson Co, Ohio on June 09, 1836 and they rest with their 3 daughters and descendents here in Rockland Cemetery, Belpre, Washinton Co. Ohio. ANY help would be greatly appriciated so I can connect him with the other Porterfields.
