Re: Surname Portee
In Response To: Re: Surname Portee ()

My name is Larry Curry, from Lawrence County Illinois, i am a 57 year old Black lifetime resident. My great grandfather was Joseph Portee. I understand my Portee ancestors came from South Carolina.
They were on my fathers side of the family. My mothers side of the family was Morris, also from S.C. The Portees, Morrises, Goins, Coles
all originated in S.C. in the 1700's. They were a mixed race of people that eventually migrated thru Kentucky up to southern Illinois.
There have been several Portees(Black) that i have grown up around. Not many left around here now. Please respond on any info about this group of families that came from S.C. We have some info that they were from th Camden, S.C. area. Thanks for any kind of response.
