Hi! I am looking for the parents of FLOYD WINFIELD PORTER. According to his Social Security file, he was born in Custer Co. NE in 1887. His parents are not listed. None of his children remember him ever telling them his parents names either, so I am pretty well stuck. If you recognize him, please let me know. Thanks very much!!! Lisa
