Welcome to

We might look like a sleepy little railroad junction, but we have quite a few genealogical "lines" that run through our junction. Check the schedule below and hop on board whatever line you are interested in. We don't get many strangers here, so you'll most likely be treated like family. If you'd like a full travel pass, head on over to the User Accounts window. It's always open and the Station Master will fix you right up.

Let me tell you a little bit about our "Junction." This web site contains information on the ancestors, descendants and other related families of George L. Porterfield and his wife Dorothy ("Dee") Mae Loose.

The information in this collection comes from over 40 years of research. You may find some conflicting information on some individuals if early notes were not corrected by my more recent research. Just click on the 'Suggestion' tab on any page about an individual or family to send a note about any corrections needed.

The Porterfields

by Frank B. Porterfield

The Porterfields was compiled by Frank Burke Porterfield and published in 1948 by Southeastern Press, Inc. of Roanoke, Virginia. It's 344 pages of Porterfield history starting with the original Porterfields in Scotland. But the lack of an index of names makes it difficult to look up people in the book.

An on-line searchable index of the U.S. names in the book is now available.
