Subject: RE: BS:Alvin Greene-So. Carolina congressional primary
This year is the 200th anniversary of my 7 generations back grandfather, The Reverend Alexander Porter, leaving Abbeville South Carolina for Fairhaven Ohio. He opposed slavery, which didn't make him a lot of friends on the session. Though half his congregation went too.
I think I'll sing a couple of choruses of "Praise God from whom all blessings flow", that my family was delivered from South Carolina.
