Brian and list,

First I would like to commend you and your co-workers on the 1830 & 1840
Cambria County transcriptions. I think I've got some new leads now on my
Cambria County ancestors, tho there is still a lot of fuzzy information.

Here's the updated information and maybe someone else can fill in the
missing pieces.

Those of you who have been around for a while know I've been looking for
parents of John Porter b. 1819 PA Who was the father of my ggrandfather
Abraham Barker Porter b. 5/20/1866

I have found the following information from Cambria Co., Census records, and
would like to know if anyone is familiar with the families here:


Porter Widow 40-50 (Sarah in 1840?)
2 males 10-15 (My John? and possibly Thomas from the 1840?)
1 female 15-20 (most likely married by the 1840 census)


Sarah Porter bet. 50-60 (b. 1780-1790)
1 male 10-15 (b.1825-1830) (not sure why he is not on the 1830 census)
1 male 20-30 (b.1810-1820) --- This fits the age range of my John Porter

Thomas Porter bet. 20-30 (b.1810-1820) -- Possible brother to John? Also is
this the Thomas Porter mentioned in the biography section as Thomas H.
Wife bet. 20-30
1 male child 0-5 b.(1835-1840)

Here's my Porter information again if someone needs it or is interested.
