James Porterfield (1830?-1860?) - Augusta?, Virginia
Posted by: Katherine Porterfield Gray (ID *****2937) Date: August 01, 2008 at 17:46:54

I am looking for information on James Porterfield. He may be the son of William Porterfield (1784?-?) and Mary Jane Albert (1791-?). I'm fairly certain the family was from Augusta County, Virginia. The family history states that he married Martha Ann Porterfield (1835-1885).

Martha Ann's parents were John Porterfield (1782-1849) and Mary Ann Thurston (1805-1852), who were commonlaw spouses. Also, I believe that John Porterfield's parents were Robert Porterfield (1752-1843), the rev war general, and Rebecca Farrar (1764-1798).

James Porterfield is very elusive. It's as if he fell off the face of the earth! Any information that anyone has would be greatly appreciated!
