Edward Porter was born in Ireland and married Elizabeth Chandler . born in England, and emigrated to the United States of America. Here they had a daughter, Margaret, born about 1858. Our family thinks Margaret at around the age of 16 married a man with the last name of “Mitchell” and had one child, Margaret Preach. We think Margaret Mitchell Donahue was our Father’s ( Thomas Joseph Michael Donahue) Mother.
