Treasure Chest Thursday My New Porter Family Addition


As you all know from my previous posts, I found in probate records the name of the son of John G Porter that has been totally missed all these years.  I know he was living in 1850 to 1860 because many of the documents had to do with his guardianship.  Sadly I have not been able to find him on a census.  I have looked at the first guardian's census returns in 1850 where he should have been but his does not show.  I have looked at those who became his guardian later and he is not there either.  I am perplexed where to go from here but I have to find him before I move backwards.  George W Porter is my treasure hunt now.
