Re: Surname Portee
In Response To: Re: Surname Portee ()
Hi Tonio it is good to hear from someone, I asked my Grandmother and she is not familiar with the name Hollis Portee, but 9 times out of 10 we are closely related, my grandmother is from Coolumbia South Carolina, her Mother was Bessie harris Portee (1897-1990) and Howard Portee (1897-1981 or 2?) Grandma said that Howards Father Samuel Portee(?) had a brother named Howell Portee that lost touch with the family, so perhaps Hollis may be a descendant of Howell. I did look on ancestry.com and Hollis Portee came up, He was from South carolina, I think Kershaw or Richland and he passed in 1971, i also saw some info on Bessie H. Portee ( Unfortunately I do not have a membership yet so I could not delve any deeper. But please keep in contact with me I would love to connect with the family. It seems as if only the older ones kept in touch with one another, perhaps us Youngins could start doing the same.
My info is as follows:
Nichole Levette Manlove
P.S. We also have relative in Illinois
