William Rufus Porterfield's line has been traced back to Scotland. Millie Ann Powers Porterfield died on Dec 13, 1911. She was still living with her son John Thomas Porterfield (my grandfather by his second wife) in the 1910 census.

1910 United States Federal Census > Arkansas > Fulton > Strawberry > District 23
Porterfield, John T. head M W 54 wd AR AR NC farmer
Della Z               sister       F W 29 S AR AR KY

William Rufus Porterfield's father was John Milton Porterfield 1813-1870, mother was Annis Leahy (some say Lea) 1810-1870.
John Milton's parents were James J. Porterfield 1780-1861 and Rutha Campbell 1783-1878.
James J.'s parents were James Porterfield 1747-1811 and Jane Alburn "Jenny" Lockhart 1747-1816.
James parents were John Porterfield 1724-1786 and his mother's name is unknown.
John's parents were John Porterfield 1675-1739 and his mother's name is unknown.
John's parents were William Porterfield 1645-1728 and his mother's name is unknown.
Get a copy of Frank Burke Porterfield's 1947 book, "The Porterfields" and with the above info, you can take it back to the year 1140 to Alanus de Porter.
