Re: Surname Portee
In Response To: Re: Surname Portee ()
I have been researching the Portee name in connection with my family surnames of Anderson & Goin. I have an Elizabeth Goin who married an Issac Portee in Somerset, Kentuclky in 1812. Elizabeth's sister may have been Winnie Goin, of Somerset, Kentucky. I do believe Isaac & Elizabeth moved to Lawrence County, Illinois. Just as my direct line of Winnie & Ezekial Anderson did. I do find an Isaac Portee in 1830 in Lawrence County.
With a marriage record of 1812, my guess would be a possible birth date for Isaac & Elizabeth to be the late 1780's or early 1790's in South Carolina.
The 1840 census does not show Isaac or Elizabeth. In 1840, I find a J or an I Portee, Lawrence County, Illinois census showing the following in the census record.
In 1850 I find no J or I Portee in the census for Lawrence County. But I do find a Mary Anderson born 1790 in SC with two Portee's in the household. I find an Alfred born 1807 in TN and an Andrew Portee born in 1823. Several other Portee families are listed in Lawrence County, Illlinois.
Can anyone connect this line for me?
