among genealogists due to the fact that both father and son were noted as
M.T. Porter on various documents. They both married women by the name of
Mary Susan or Mary Susie. It has been noted by Wilma Faye Porter that her
mother, Mary Susie Wingfield, was named for Mary Susan Stockton who eventually
became Mary Susie Wingfield's mother-in-law.
