Would like to compare notes regarding the John Porterfield who married Sarah ___ who survived the 1741 wreck of the ship Grand Design (really was the Martha & Eliza) on Mt Desert Island ME (really was the Grand Manan, now Canadian).

See NEHGR July 1957 page 214.

They reportedly married ca 1743, lived in Georgetown ME and had 8 children, two sons and six daughters (sorry, I don't have their names).
