Joseph Frank & Ella J. (Tapley) Porter family Bible - Essex Co, MA

No relation. I just enjoy browsing through family Bibles up for auction on eBay and trying to connect any genealogical info provided by the seller to those that might find it interesting or worth pursuing. I am not the seller! Here is what I found:

Joseph Frank Porter born April 8th, 1847
Ella J. Tapley born February 25, 1850

Chester Tapley Porter born December 20, 1874
Bessie Preston Porter born October 21, 1879

I believe I've correctly identified this family as follows from the 1880 Essex Co, MA census:
Joseph F. PORTER Self M Male W 33 MA Furniture Dealer MA MA
Ella J. PORTER Wife M Female W 30 MA Keeping House MA MA
Chester T. PORTER Son S Male W 5 MA MA MA
Bessie P. PORTER Dau S Female W 7M MA MA MA
