Death: 1946

Senator Porter was united in marriage February 23, 1882, with Miss Anna I. Berry of Clarinda, Iowa, a daughter of William B. and Elmina (Bennett) Berry. She was born April 26, 1860, at Columbus, Iowa, of Quaker descent, and is a graduate of the high school at Clarinda. To her assistance, advice and counsel, the Senator cheerfully accords a large measure of his success. She is eminently fitted to discharge the duties, both socially and in civic affairs which the position of her husband necessitates, and belongs to the Monday Club, the Tuesday Extension Club, and the First Presbyterian Church, in which she is one of the foremost figures. A woman of exceptional executive ability, she is always in the front rank, working for a better and greater Pittsburg, and her charities are disbursed without regard to political or religious affiliations. Three children have been born to Senator and Mrs. Porter: Lillian, who died aged eleven months; Harry Huston, born June 21, 1889; and Harold Berry, born November 3, 1891.
