Your William Francis Ports was born circa 1832 in Baltimore County, Md.He married Emma C. Hubbard in Baltimore City in 1860.I only know of three children:
1) Pauline, born 1861.
2) William J., born 1864.
3) Iola, born 1867.
His wife Emma died in 1871.I have no record of this line after 1870 Baltimore City Census and the reference to her death in the local newspapers.Apparently, he married again and had more children.Where did he live after 1870?
Your William was the son of Jacob Ports (1799-1889).I have much more on his family and can take you back three more generations.Please send your e-mail address and I will send you much more information.
