Peggy DeFoor My Grandfather, John B. Porter married Laura E. Gardenhire on August 24, 1894. They lived in Powhatan, Arkansas for many years then disappeared. I do not know the name of my grandfathers parents. He is listed as being born both in Missouri and Tenn. I am not for sure just where he was born. If anyone knows any information on this family, I would love to talk to you. My older brothers do not know anything about our grandparents. I did find a deed recorded in 1896 to a John B Porter, but I am not sure this is the same person. Powhatan is in Lawrence County, Arkansas. They later moved to Lawrence Township which is also in Lawrence County, Arkansas. My father has been dead since 1966 and I know very little about his family. Can you help me?????????????????
