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.
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.
