My best guess is that Samuel married twice.  The first to an Elizabeth whose maiden name is unknown. They had two children, William and Lucinda.  I believe she died on 22 Feb 1831 (see a possible Find a Grave memorial here).  Subsequently, Samuel married Eliza Stevenson who had been previous married to a man named Marquis and they had three more children, Elizabeth, George  and Catherine.

The only historical records I can find listing Samuel's wife's maiden name are death records for their son, George, and daughter Elizabeth (listed as Stevison), so I'm using Stevenson as her name, even though several WorldConnect records give Marquis as her name. There is a 1931 marriage record between Samuel Porterfield and an Eliza Marques or Marquis. If it is this Samuel Porterfield (I think think it may be), I suspect it means Eliza was married before.
