Contributed by Mary Washburn, Mar 03, 2004 [mwashburn2004@hotmail.com].
Total records = 20.

Direction: From the Grayhound Station in Youngstown on the corner of I-20 and Highway 231. Go west on I-20 to South Bluesprings Rd also known as County road 2301 make left. Continue for about 3 miles, cemetery on right side of South Bluesprings Road.

The Porter Cemetery is situated south of the Brown cemetery about .2 miles, on the same road. It is on land deeded to the Porter heirs, which was a part of the old Gainer Settlement from the 1870s.

This cemetery has been here since the late 1800's with the earliest burial listed being about 1871. It still is active.

I walked and read this cemetery on Feb 21, 2004. This includes all existing and legible headstones.
