PORTEOUS from NEW YORK STATE
Posted by: Gary A. Newell (ID *****9631) Date: July 21, 2003 at 11:46:30
  of 363

My Great Grandmother was Midred PORTEOUS. Tradition has she was born in Waddington, New York (St. Lawrence County)
The family information I have lists dates for her husband, Heman NEWELL (B: 30JUL1882, Muskada, MN) so I assume she must have been born between 1880-1890. Also, her family must have moved from NY to Minnesota, when she was growing up, since she was married in MN in 1906. I would like to find out her dates of birth & death, and any leads as to who her parents and siblings were. I hear there were a lot of PORTEOUS Family in St. Lawrence County, NY, so I hope someone else is researching this branch of the family. ANY help would be appreciated. Thank you !
