I would like to know any information you have on the Gassaways of Miss. I think one of this line married my 4th g grandfather James Parnell Portis. He had a son named William Gassaway Portis who was named in his uncle William Gassaway's will. It was writtenin Muscogee Co., GA., but filed in Talbot Co., GA. Wm. Gassaway also named another nephew, William David Gassaway, son of my brother James Gassaway. This James Gassaway was on the 1820 Wilkes Co., GA census, but in Tippah Co., MS by 1830. He died in 1848 in Miss.
I believe my James Parnell Portis along with Elizabeth(his wife's mother) and brother-in-laws Samuel, Daniel and James travelled from GA to MS together. I cannot prove who James Parnell Portis' wife was , but I know by the above will she was a Gassaway.
Do you know anything about the girls, Rebecca, Hannah and Lucy?
