I have had a brick wall for about 10 years now in regards to a step sister of my great grandfather Jesse o Burgess.Her name was Caroline Porter, we knew her parents were a Thomas Porter and Catherine Pixler. Catherine Pixler is my 2nd GGrandmother.
We have had no info as Thomas Porter died early, but I have been given a photo of a Dr. Porter...it states underneathDr. Wilson Porter brother to Caroline Porter Robey.
Here is what I have....
