I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting your web page. I located some of my family through the cemetery listings. However, I'd like some information on locating informtion on African American residents of Nevada County (1860- to present). Do you know if any slave owners' families kept their slave logs, o r have passed down information through the oral tradition. My family name is Porter. My paternal great-great-grandfather's name was Sam Porter, my great-grandfather's name was Isaiah Porter and my grandfather's name was Willie Porter. Family history says that the family changed its name from Alexander to Porter before 1900. Sam Porter/Alexander also owned land in Nevada County in the 1800's. Any information that anyone may have on the family names: Porter, Alexander, Allen, Christopher, or Box please contact me. My great grandmother's name was Mary E. Christopher. My GG Grandmother's name was Mariah Christopher and my GGG Grandmother and Grandfather's names were Benjamine and Patience Christopher. They worked and lived on the Robert Christopher Farm in Nevada County (Near Chidester). If anyone had info on the Robert and Eliza Christopher family this too would be helpful. Perhaps some of their offspring still have family history/information or documents.
