John CAMPBELL, Sr was my fifth-great-grandfather on my mom’s maternal side. He was born in 1763 in Orange County, North Carolina to Patrick CAMPBELL (1724-August 27, 1799) and Elizabeth JAMES (death in 1830). John died in 1867 in Perry, Kentucky.
Mary Ann COUCH was my fifth-great-grandmother. She was born in 1772 in North Carolina to John C COUCH (1750-1830) and Mary “Polly” BOONE (November 14, 1746 – 1781). Mary Ann died in 1853 in Perry, Kentucky.
John and Mary were married in 1790 in Wilkes, North Carolina and were the parents of Rebecca CAMPBELL.
Rebecca CAMPBELL (1810 – 1880) and William Riley HOSKINS (born in 1802 and died after 1880) were the parents of Elizabeth Ann HOSKINS.
Elizabeth Ann HOSKINS (September 1828 – December 28, 1855) and Moses Franklin PORTER (January 20, 1826 – December 26, 1900) were the parents of Daniel Marion PORTER. Elizabeth died the day that she gave birth to Daniel and his twin. The twin lived until sometime in 1856, but was unnamed so likely only lasted a few days (he was born four days before the new year). Elizabeth left Moses with six children including the twins.
Daniel Marion PORTER (December 28, 1855 – February 27, 1925) and Caroline Adele GILBERT (1864 – 1895) were the parents of Charles Oscar PORTER.

Mary Irene’s maiden name was SMITH. She had four marriages with at least two divorces (to the same man). Her husbands were Fred S. TARTER, Mr. ROBINETT, Fred S. TARTER, and Ruby Irene’s father Charles Oscar PORTER.
Ruby Irene PORTER (March 24, 1928 – May 13, 2010) and Carlton Nathanial WILLIAMS (March 16, 1922 – July 15, 1991) were the parents of my mom.
