Bio and Links
Bio Photo I research my own family & am chief VOLUNTEER genealogist for Porteous Associates - worldwide group which collects trees & shares information for all Portei. We don't sell, post or publish trees as we respect privacy of living individuals, but exchange info with interested family historians. If I've entered a family member of yours & you'd like to manage it, do ask - glad to transfer.

I've recently found out that mid-2013 Find-a-grave made some updates to geographical entries which have resulted in automated changes which have 'fixed' locations listing closest community - NOT always right! I'm attempting 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 send email, just use auto function - another new feature.)

Also a warning to recheck any 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 rather than edited? Dead (excuse the pun) links aren't too helpful!

Fairmount photos on new entries
Hi Pat,
I just thought I would let you know that I will be posting photos on the new entries that I have added to Fairmount in Spokane. Just an FYI so you do not have to request them. Thanks for the edits! R

Porteous updates
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.

Correcting Marriages
Sir Pat, I agree whole-heartedly. That's why I took them out initially; then, I can go back in and put them into the correct order. When I get some time, I have other commitments right at the moment, I'd like to ask/talk to you about my Porteous family back in Yorkshire, England, if that's okay.

Have a grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat day!

RE: missing
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.

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.

Julia Porteous
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?
