I don't know if this helps, but in the History of Jericho, Vermont, 1763-1916, there is a brief account of the Porter family, by Julia Ann Porter. It reads as follows: "Nathan Porter and Anne E. Hutchinson, his wife, came to Jericho from Danville, VT, in 1853. With them came Nathan Porter, Sr., who d. Nov 15, 1856. To Nathan Porter Jr., and wife were b. two children: Julia Ann, now living in town, and Alice Rose, who m. Edward H. Cole, living most of their married life in Champlain, NY. Mrs. Cole d. in 1910. Mr. Porter d. June 3, 1899, and his wife, 'Aunt Ann,' as she was familiarly called, passed away March 15, 1912, aged minety-two years, being the oldest person in town."
