Hello! B .....

You may wish to look on page 2 of these listings for a posting  by Bill Porter entitled "Porter Family" with several replies.

Also ... I have accumulated about 10 pages of information on the Porter family and will attach them if you will email me at
<carl.demings@ns sympatico.ca>

Good hunting.

I don't know where the information came from about me being the daughter of Ronald Christian but it's wrong.  My father was Donald Fitzgerald, he was my mother, Lorraine Porters' first husband.

Lorraine Porter now lives in Saint John, NB with me and has since November of 1999.  She was married to my father, Donald Aubrey Fitzgerald.  He died on July 10th, 1999.  She was divorced from him at the time and was married to Ronald Christian and divorced him.  He has since died.  If there is anything else you need to know, please contact me as my mother can help with further information regarding her family.

Hello! Leigh .....
Thank you for correcting the information I posted on you and your mother.
It is difficult to know how accurate the information is for the Porter and other families I have as it comes from various sources, many of which are not documented. However knowing your mother Lorraine was twice married should correct the information I sent previously.
Here's a different type of listing. Hopefully you and your mother will be able to understand it. It is called a descendent chart. The (+) sign means married/partner.
Descendant List of David "Amos" PORTER
------------------------------------------------------------
1-David "Amos" PORTER (29 Jul 1885-9 Apr 1951)
+Reta May MACDONALD (abt 1900-8 Dec 1985)
. . . . 2-William A. PORTER (abt 1919-22 Jan 1989)
. . . .  +Emma SPENCE
. . . . . . . . 3-Harold PORTER
. . . . 2-Harold "Leonard" PORTER (28 Aug 1925-10 Jun 1943)
. . . . 2-Etta Mae PORTER
. . . .  +Henry Gordon (Henney) O'DONNELL (abt 1925-29 Oct 2005)
. . . . . . . . 3-William (Billy) O'DONNELL
. . . . . . . .  +Barbara
. . . . . . . . 3-Brenda O'DONNELL
. . . . . . . .  +Greg ROLAND
. . . . . . . . 3-Sherry O'DONNELL
. . . . . . . .  +Terry PORTER
. . . . 2-Muriel PORTER
. . . .  +THOMAS
. . . . 2-Donald PORTER
. . . .  +Unknown
. . . . . . . . 3-William (Bill) PORTER
. . . . 2-Arthur PORTER
. . . . 2-Harold Leonard PORTER d. 1943
. . . . 2-Lorraine PORTER
. . . .  +Donald Aubrey FITZGERALD
. . . . . . . . 3-Leigh FITZGERALD
. . . . . . . .  +BEATON
. . . .  +Ronald CHRISTIAN
I assumed from looking at your e-mail address that you married a Beaton.
I started corresponding with people interested in the Porter family back in 2003 when it was originally posted to the Springhill Heritage Group site and have met some very kind family members since then.
I am always interested in having more Porter information which can be shared with others and can be contacted at: <carl.demings@ns.sympatico.ca> or:

Hi Carl:

Thank you for the information about my Mom's family.  I just wanted to let you know that "Leigh" is a nickname, my real name is Edith Lorraine Fitzgerald Beaton.  I was named after my Aunt Edith, she was my father's sister. She lived in Springhill all of her life and was married to Mutt Harrison, Archie Bobbie and Stanley Burke.  I have alot of family in Springhill and Mom and I are in the process of trying to find a place to live down there.  She's not well and we want to go back to Springhill.  She has her sister, Muriel Thomas, still living there and some other family members.  I hope when we do get moved that we can meet and do some more family tree tracing.  Take Care      Leigh     (Aunt Muriel's late husband's name was Leo Thomas)
