Porter was the son of Rev. Shannon and Kitturah (Durnang) Akin. The town he was born in was named after his father. It was a prosperous little town while the railroads regularly ran through it, but died after the railroad left.

On February 8, 1880, Porter married Katherine R. Baughman. Their children were
David,
Russell,
Luella, and
Grover C.
Porter's wife, Katherine, died in July of 1888.

On October 4, 1888, Porter married Mary Emily (Peoples) Stone. Their children were
George Bryant,
Gertrude Truman,
Grace Ann,
Mary Lucindy,
Maude,
Goldia Shannon, and
Gladys Thompson.
