The Porter Family in Oregon Cemetery

This headstone of J. M. Porter, who died on November 22, 1861, is inscribed simply with "Father" and "aged 72 years and 5 months." My great-greatgrandfather, who lived in Attala County, was also named J(ames) M. Porter, and I have been unable to determine the exact relationship of these two individuals to each other. Also buried in the Oregon Cemetery are A. A. Porter and his wife, M. M. Porter.

More information about the Porter Family in Attala and Madison Counties can be found at one of this site's companion blogs,
Attala County Memories.
