Very interested to read your message.I have a small family record book printed in New York 1916 and put together by William N. McHarg.It includes the family history of some McHargs and Porter families but no Byington is mentioned.I know these are the same families because of the Albany connection.
By the way, it was picked up in a 2nd hand book stall by my Aunt in Glasgow.My grandmother was a McHarg coming from Stranraer to Glasgow and I am sure originally from Ireland.
There are so many names mentioned e.g. Henry King McHARG born 1851 married Fredericka Bremer BRITTON in 1875.Their children were Edith May, John, Madeline B, Henry King JR and Marion Adelaide.The McHargs begin with John McHarg born Wigtownshire, Scotland in 1733 who died in Albany in 1803 aged 70.
As I said there are so many names mentioned, I think you should contact me.
