Overview

There were three Porter families who settled in Old Augusta during the Pre-Revolutionary period.

Samuel Porter who came to the area from Drumore Township, in PA, settled south of the Buffalo, and eventually returned to PA.
Person:Patrick Porter (1) who settled south of the Buffalo
Person:William Porter (70) William Porter who settled on the southside of the Maury River, approximately where the River passes between Jump Mountain to the North, and Hogback Mountain to the South (e.g., immediately downstream of Goshen Pass)

Samuel and Patrick are believed to be closely related. William, however, has a different YDNA signature than Patrick (and presumably Samuel), indicating that his is an independent line from the other two.
