  1. Thanks for all your sharing. The Duncan family is also connected to my Porter family. George Washington Duncan married Frances Connelly. The Connelly family is connected too. Philip Porter;’s wife Nancy Brent was Frances Brent who m. John Donaldson Connelly. We also visited the Green Cemetery in Bloomfield, KY last year with our cousins. Iyt is possibly 24×24 with a fence around it with lots of briars, and weeds covering the Tombstones and located in the middle of a field. We have a lot of good pictures from there, as my cousins are Photographers. The Duncans and Connellys and Porters all seemed to come from the Loudon Co. VA area and then on to KY. My 3rd gr grandfather was Philip Porter b. Alexandria, Fairfax Co. VA, just outside Washington D.C. and his parents and family must have migrated westward as he was in Frederick Co. Va, possibly when he married Nancy Brent, and later in Loudoun Co. VA before they moved to KY. I sure enjoy your site and all the Carrico info too. I have to find time to really post all that you have sent. If you do come across any Porters ….please share, and thanks for all your work.
