About Israel Porter

  • Note: 10 children. His daughter, Elizabeth, was the mother of General Israel Putnam, the commanding hero of Bunker Hill.
  • The Salem MASSGENWEB site mentions an "Anti-Parris Network" led by Israel Porter. Reverand Parris, of course, was the Reverand made famous in the Salem Witch trials. One of this network's members, John Proctor, was hung as a witch, and was featured in "The Crucible". Essex County Records show a donation by Israel in 1692 for the formation of a school: THE RYAL SIDE SCHOOL. Attention was given at a very early date to the establishment of a school at Ryal Side, and the original movement appears to have been with the inhabitants of the district, whose homes were widely scattered. These residents informally organized as a Board of Trustees or Managers and purchased a lot for the erection of their schoolhouse.
