Pop-up Pedigree

Family Lester K. Porcher b. 12 March 1915, d. August 1985
Marriage* after 1945  Groom: Lester K. Porcher
Bride: Celia M. Hammersley
Book: 27
Page: 253, Principal=Lester K. Porcher4,2 

Name Variation   Celia M. Rufer3 
Name Variation   Celia M. Herbert1 
Note*   Celia was born out of wedlock. It is unknown who her father is. There were a few Hammersleys in the area that were the right age, most were married with the exception of Clarence and Don Hammersley, brothers living in Oxford Twp., Coshocton Co. who in 1920 were 24 and 21 respectively. Her mother, Lillian Herbert, was 21 in 1920 so either of the brothers seem to be possibilities but it is always possible she had an affair with a married man which is why she didn't marry him. She would have been classmates with Don however so he seems the likely father.

Celia is listed as Celia M. Herbert when she was living with her mother and grandfather in 1920 but in 1930 after her mother had married Harry Rufer, she is listed in the census as Celia M. Rufer.

All other Porcher's in the area are accounted for and the only one who marriad a Celia was Lester K. Porcher. While no obits or cemetery records have surfaced yet, Lester and Celia both lived and died in Newcomerstown and by process of elimination, they must have been husband and wife.
