Fayette County, Alabama
~ Uncle Sam Porter ~
Samuel V. "Sam" PORTER (seated
left) was the son of Samuel H. PORTER and Sarah C.
[--?--]. He was born Nov. 11, 1872, in Fayette County; died Jan.
14, 1968; buried at Musgrove Chapel
Methodist Church Cemetery in Fayette County. He first
married Mary Ella
(seated right), Nov. 10, 1892,
at the WEBSTER residence in Fayette County [Bk B:2]. She was born
Feb. 6, 1875, in AL; died Feb. 26, 1935; buried at Musgrove Chapel.
It is presumed that the others pictured above are their children —
R. PORTER, Eula PORTER and Lucille PORTER (standing between
parents). Travis was born Nov. 11, 1893, in Fayette
Dec. 14, 1925, in Fayette County; bur. Musgrove Chapel. Eula was
born Aug. 10, 1895, in Fayette County;
died March 1985 in Marion Co., AL; married William (Pervy)
CORBETT (1891-1977). Lucille
was born about 1905 and was still living at home in 1920.
Sam PORTER married a second time to Mrs. Florence HODGES
(1900-1986). She had
a sister named Mae who married Will OWENS in Fayette.
Florence's first husband, Charlie HODGES (1899-1924), was a brother to
(HODGES) RILEY and Mrs. Daisy (HODGES) SMITH. Florence and
Charlie had two sons: John Edwin HODGES and Wayne HODGES. She and
PORTER reportedly did not have any children together.
This photograph was among my
grandmother's possessions. I would
like to know
how (or if) the PORTERs were related to my MORTON, HAM, STEWART, SMITH
