Moses and Polly Porter with Their Children ~ Wordless Wednesday

Moses and Polly Porter and Their Grown Children

Moses Franklin and Mary Ann “Polly” ROSENBERGER PORTER and their children.

Edward T. Porter wrote, “The family in Oxford, Kansas ca. 1895. Note the flowers! I saw this house when I went there. It was then a pig farm, and the smell was what I remembered the most. All of the living children of both marriages of Moses were there, and in this photo.”

Moses and Polly are sitting in the rocking chairs and I believe that Daniel Marion PORTER is sitting in the front row on the far left.

All Present that Day - Moses Porter and family

This photograph was labeled “All present that day”. This includes their spouses and children. I have no idea what the occasion was.

Moses Franklin PORTER was my third great-grandfather, Daniel Marion PORTER was my second great-grandfather (his mother Elizabeth Ann HOSKINS died during the birth of Daniel and his twin who died a few days later), Daniel was the father of my great-grandfather Charles Oscar PORTER, who was the father of my grandma Ruby Irene PORTER WILLIAMS, and she was my mom’s mother.
