of David Porterfield, Sr.
Welcome to our
The following pages
tell the stories of various branches of the Porterfields
of Georgia and related families. The progenitor
of this family was David Porterfield, Sr.,
and we have included his known descendants to
the present day.
We compiled the lineages
of these descendants to the best of our ability
and present them here. Many hours of work by many
contributing family members have been put into
the research and documentation of these family
members. We all have attempted to make the following
data as complete and accurate as possible, but
we know that gaps and errors do exist. As with
any genealogical research, this is a work in progress.
Additions and corrections are welcomed. To protect
privacy, we have omitted personal data on persons

site at least once per year, and certain pages
are updated more often. Check the date at the

contains links to GEDCOM files for the descendants
of these families on the RootsWeb WorldConnect
Project. The Webmaster updates those GEDCOM files

central database, so the files on the WorldConnect
Project always reflect the most current and complete
family information in that database.
who print out data from this, or any, Web site,
should also print out the source citations (if
available). Our source citations are included
on this Web site, but the Webmaster did not personally

each source as either primary or secondary.

marked as "primary" since this category
includes public records, photos of tombstones,
family Bible pages, or original documents in
the possession of the Webmaster or another family

"secondary" before relying on the
information. Secondary resources include published
books and genealogy reports, information shared
over the Internet without source citations,
undocumented family stories or legends, etc.
a source (usually a living family member) was
marked as "primary and secondary,"
it means that person possesses primary family
documents for him/herself, his/her own spouse,
children, parents and possibly grandparents.
However, for generations beyond the grandparents,
the visitor should treat the data as coming
from a secondary source and verify it.
