Pre-enlistment occupation was listed as Baker, residing in Boston, Massachusetts. Enlisted on June 22, 1863 in the 9th Massachusetts Light Artillery, at the age of 18. Died of disease at Alexanderia, Virginia.

Baker lists Byron Porter as never joining. The William Park report to The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Office of Commissioner on War Records report identify Byron Porter as never mustered in as he died Sept. 8 or 19, 1863. A letter from David Brett's daughter Carrie, from Convalescent Camp Va., states, "There were a great many newly made graves there and but two Mass. soldiers. One belonged to fathers battery. His name was 'Biron Porter'. He is amoung the last that was buried and undoudtedly sickened and died in the hospital since I have been here." This is consistent with the other three listed sources.
