In Reply to: John Porterfield 1860s Nashville-NYC by Robert Hillert of 798

John Porterfield b. August 21, 1819 d. December 28, 1874 buried Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee
Educated at Nashville, Tennessee; was known as a prominent banker before the Civil War, and a member of the Presbyterian Church. In the Civil War conflict he took a considerable part on the side of the South with Secretary Benjamin of the Confederate State Department; is buried at Mt. Olivet cemetery, Nashville, Tennessee.
In reference to the part played by him in the Civil War, you are referred to Volume 8, Series II, pp. 859, 940 and 941 of the Official Records of the War of the Rebellion.
The matter is too long to be incorporated in this work. Also see Volume 43, Series I, p 933, of the same, for a communication to J.P. Benjamin, Confederate Secretary of State, dated December 3, 1864, Toronto, Canada.
