Re: PORTEE/GROOMS Columbia SC
In Response To: PORTEE/GROOMS Columbia SC ()
My great grandmother was Ada Portee and her husband was Williams Grooms Eastover/Columbia SC. My grandfather was James Grooms SR and my father James Grooms JR. To my understanding Portee family didn't like Grooms family/ something about race to my understanding. Ada's mother was Dorcas and father Elijah who was preacher. I was born and raised in Virginia. All my grandfather's sister and brother's have passed, but the 1st cousins are alive. I'm in my 40's. And the funny thing is Dorcas was a Grooms before she married Elijah.....explains a lot with my family!!!!!!
