|David Porter was born around 1780 in Rockbridge (County), VA and died suddenly on the Oregon Trail and was buried there. I have read that he had a "fit of apoploxy" (a stroke?). His inscription is on the reverse side of his wife Nancy's tombstone in the Blue River Cemetery near Detroit, IL. His father was William Alexander Porter, a Revolutionary War soldier. His mother was Mary Bowen.|
