RESEARCH NOTES:
Elizabeth PARKER was Andrew PORTER's second wife [Ref : Helm p174]

As a lad young Porter received meagre educational advantages, b ut he was of a
studious disposition, and learned mathematics under Patrick Men non, an Irish
schoolmaster in the neighborhood of his father's farm. He began teaching in
the country, but upon the advice of David Rittenhouse, the famous astronomer,
he removed to Philadelphia and opened a mathematical school, and conducted it
with success for a number of years. The accounts of Mr. Porter's entry upon
his Revolutionary career are conflicting. According to a sketch i n the
Pennsylvania Magazine of History (Vol IV, p263) he was commissioned by
Congress, June 19 1776, a captain of marines on the frigate Effingham. The
Eff ingham was an armed boat of the Pennsylvania Navy, but the name of Captain
Por ter does not appear on the muster rolls. In Heitman's "Historical Register"
hi s record is given as lieutenant of the 4th Md. Battalion of the "Flying
Camp," from June to December 1776. This is probably correct, as his record is
a con tinuous one afterward. He was appointed 1st lieutenant of the 5th Reg't
Md. L ine, Dec 10 1776, and captain in the 2nd captain in the 2nd Continental
Artill ery, Col. Lamb, Jan 1 1777. He was transferrd to the 4th Continental
Artiller y, COl. Proctor, Jan 1 1781, with which he served until the close of
the war. He was promoted to be major Apr 17 1781, and lieutenant-colonel
commandant, J an 1 1782. Captain Porter was in command of a battery at the
battles of Princ eton, Brandywine, and Germantown. At Brandywine he was
commended on the field by Gen. Washington for gallant conduct in that action.
In 1779 he served in G en. James Clinton's brigade, in General Sullivan's
expedition against the Indi ans. When it was determined to invest Yorktown,
Col. Porter was directed to t ake charge of the laboratory at Philadelphia,
where the ammunition for the sei ge was prepared. He objected to being removed
from service in the field to as sume the direction of what was generally
regarded as a mere chemical laborator y, but his objections were silenced by a
letter from the Commander-in-chief. "You say that you are desirous of being
placed in that situation in which you render your country the most efficient
services." Gen Washington wrote. "Our success depends much on the manner in
which our cartridges, bombs, and matches are prepared. The eye of science is
required to superintend their preparatio n; and if the information of Gen.
Knox, who knows you well and intimately, is to be depended on, there is no
officer in the army better qualified than yours elf for the station I have
assigned to you."
Col. Porter was concerned in one affair during the Revolution of which he
was averse to speaking in later year s. One day in October, 1781, in a coffee
house in Philadelphia, Porter heard Major Benjamin Eustis, a Masschusetts
officer, then serving in the 4th Artille ry, say: "He is nothing but a ___
schoolmaster." Porter asked if the words we re intended for him, and received
an answer that means a response in the affir mative. "I have been a
schoolmaster, sir," Porter replied, "and have not forg otten my vocation," and
after these words he struck Eustis with the flat of hi s sword. A duel
followed in the Cadwallader garden at Ninth and Arch Sts., in which Major
Eustis fell at the first fire, shot through the heart. A court m artial was
ordered, at which Porter was acquitted and he became Eustis' succes sor in the
4th Artillery.
After the Revolution Colonel Porter was offered the chair of mathematics in
the University of Pennsylvania, but he declined it an d retired to a farm that
he had purchased in Mon Parents: .
