John Honeyman was my 4th great grandfather, His daughter Eleanor born 1772 married Abram Porter born 1773. Tracing the Porter heritage lived in Hunterdon County, N.J. near the county line not far from Griggstown, N. J. This was near the Delaware River. The story states John was a giant of a man, it would take plenty of strength to be a butcher. My two sons and four grandsons are all 6'4'' or over my 6'2". height. The movement of the families can be traced into this farming area where Washington crossed the Delaware at the Revolutionary time .I wouldn't be bits surprised that they may have helped with the butchering..
Orson Sage Porter, former mayor of Rochester, Minnesota owned a guest house and served Porethouse Steaks, his land acreage was purchased by the Mayo Clinic.
