|Bio and Links|
Besides researching my family (+ in-laws) I'm chief volunteer genealogist for worldwide group Porteous Associates which collects trees & shares information for all Portei. We don't sell, post or publish trees as privacy of living individuals respected, but exchange with interested family historians. If I've entered a family member of yours which you'd like to manage, ask - glad to transfer.|
Mid-2013 Find-a-grave updated geographical entries which resulted in automated changes which have 'fixed' locations listing closest community - NOT always right! I've attempted to edit these, but apologize if some not caught - if you spot any, feel free to use the 'edit' option to send a correction (don't email, just use auto function.)
Also a warning to recheck links made to memorials you don't control - make sure they're still there! I've had 'memorial not found' show up as various entries/cemeteries have been deleted & reentered instead of edited? Dead links (excuse the pun) aren't too helpful!

|Fr Val||RE: William Portas (#153619541)|
Thanks for that date, which drew me to the source used by FamSearch/Ancestry; though based on transcript extracts, reliability is good. Am happy to post the info on Find A Grave.
I shall be interested to see the original register entry when I am able to make a visit to the archives!

New Bolingbroke is in Lincolnshire, quite some distance away. Dunnington (Yorkshire) burial details for the William listed by me are definite, and unique in this churchyard. Karen's William Portas must therefore be a namesake but different person, for whom you or she may wish to make a separate Find A Grave memorial.
Aside from that. As a Scot (though now in York) I am acquainted with the Porteous name and origins. At one time I used to pass by the Crook Inn regularly going to and from Edinburgh! and I know of its significance to the Porteous diaspora.

|Mindy||RE: photo requests (Neepawa)|
Thank you so much for the information! I was able to go to the Neepawa Cemetery information and add the plot numbers, etc. Thank you again!

Hi Pat - received you SAC for the links -- I've updated Christopher's record. Just thought I'd let you know you can do the relationship links via the edit tab now...works really slick!
Thanks for doing all that you are doing.

OK, I have added the photos.
My other message was unclear I guess - the other Porteous plot I found was Roy and I had added the photos. (interesting to note that this grave is directly behind my parents - been there many times, but I was shocked when I passed by there the other day and saw the Porteous name). I'm always looking for more and I see there are still many more to go.

|Goldrush||RE: Julia Porteous - birth?/marriage?|
Julia was an Allen. I believe that the marriage notice of Alva to Julia Phillips was simply a mistake. Grace Phillips did marry a Porteous and so that might have caused the wrong name to be used.
1900 census Nevada City, CA: George H. Allen 47 born England (Married 19 years)
Sarah J. Allen 50 born Wales (had 12 children, 7 still alive)
John R. Hopkins 30 born Wales. Son
Maggie Hopkins 23 born CA. Daughter
Henry Allen 16 born CA (George Henry)
Julia 12 born CA
Robert 10 born CA
Samuel J. Coltell 48
Thomas Laity 50
Edwin Hopkins 28
(Sarah Allen clearly was married before to a Hopkins)
Also Albert Herman Howe married Bernice Ewing Oct 15, 1913 in ID. They must have divorced because she remarried to Wiley Routt in 1962. Note in his obit that he had a sister named Leola Ewing so he may have married the sister of his brother in alw.
1910 Census Nevada City, CA
Alvah Porteous 29. Married 3 years (this would make the year of marriage as maybe 1907)
Julia Porteous 22 born CA. Parents both born England.
Hardy Porteous 2

Calaveras Prospect 7/21/1900: Alva Porteous married Julia Phillips on 7/15/1900.
Calaveras Prospect 6/30/1917: Robert L. Smith age 26, married Julia Etta Porteous age 29 on 6/23/1917.
And since someone gave the info for the death certificate and said her maiden name was Allen, could Julia have been married to someone by the name of Phillips first?
