Notes for John Pomeroy Porter




John:
Starting on October 2nd, 1864, the Regiment left Georgetown, Kansas in pursuit of Rebel General Price who was then invading Missouri.

On Nov 1st, the Doctor (Porter) and two fellow officers were in the middle of a line of march proceeding towards Lexington, Missouri.

The trio left the line of troops to seek supper and a warm fire at a nearby farm house.

The dinner was leisurely and, although warned of Confererate guerilla activity in the area, the officers reaminge in the house until after the troops had passed - partially at the insistance of Dr. Porter who wanted another bowol of soup and a drink of buttermilk.

The Doctor's companions left the house to rejoin the troops who were now out of sight.

John: JOHN P PORTER, M.D.
JOHN P PORTER, M.D., deceased, who was one of the foremost practitioners of his day in Adams County, was born in Mansfield, Ohio, in 1823, a son of Dr. Alexander and Sarah (Pomeroy) Porter, early settlers of Adams County. His early education was received in the schools of his neighborhood, and at the high school at Dalton, Ohio. He followed the avocation of a teacher for several years, commencing at the age of seventeen years. He began reading medicine under the preceptorship of his father, and later attended Rush Medical College of Chicago, Illinois, graduating from that institution. He was married in 1850 to Miss Elizabeth Dorwin, a native of Mansfield, Ohio. Three children were born to this union - Charles D., Miles F. (a practicing physician of Fort Wayne, Indiana), and Jennie (deceased). Dr. Porter began the practice of medicine at Decatur, Adams County, Indiana, which he followed until 1862, when he was commissioned First Surgeon of the Eighty-ninth Indiana Infantry and went South with his regiment. He was taken prisoner at Munfordville, Kentucky, and returned home on parol. He was afterward exchanged and joined his regiment, and November 1, 1864, he was shot and killed by bushwhackers, near Lexington, Missouri. During his military service Dr. Porter attended the sick and wounded and is yet remembered by his comrades for his many good qualities and kindness to all, and they have perpetuated his memory in the name of the Grand Army post at Geneva. He was a true Union man, and in politics was a strong Republican. Genial in temperament, charitable toward the unfortunate, active in the support of every movement calculated to promote the public welfare, he was a man who took a prominent position in the community in which he lived, and gained the confidence of all who knew him. He was unusually skilled in the knowledge of his profession, and while at Decatur established a large practice. He was a member of both the Masonic and Odd Fellows orders. Mrs. Porter is also deceased, her death taking place in October, 1884. Both the doctor and his wife were members of the Presbyterian church.
