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

Hello Mr. Curry,
I also have Goins in my family lineage. Perhaps we can help eachother trace our roots. All of the Portees, Fortsons, Goins and other family names that I am aware of from my family lineage have come from South Carolina. I actually have relatives in North and South Carolina to this day. I am(unfortunately) very young and not as knowledgeable about the family history as I would like to be (my grandmother-our historian-passed many years ago). This is what I can tell you...
My grandmother's name was Daisy Belle Portee. Her father's name was Ruben Portee, and I my great-grandma's name was Corlester Fortson. I spoke to my mom and she will talk to my grandmother's sister (Elvina Portee) so that she can get more information for you on the Portee's, Fortson's, and Goins etc.... My mother will email me w/ more info. soon. Her name is Michele Nicely, and she will be on the forum soon. If you have any info like your mother's name and such, then that will help.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
