Vicky Williamson
William Williamson
I am confused regarding William Williamson. My records indicated that William was the father of James(Olive Chilton) and that James & Olive had a son Henry Williamson. the records you show say that James & Olive were the parents of William and there is no mention of Henry. Can you verify any of this information for me so I can make sure my tree is correct.

Vera Grimes- Stoutenburgh
Yes I do have her signature in Myrtle's book. For her funeral ( myrtle's) She signed it Mrs. George Grimes. Any help with this tree would help ! I do believe they came from Ireland? Myrtle is my 3rd great grandma !

Myrtle F Lozar Gould
She is my 3rd great grandmother. Buried in Sheridan Mi. Next to Dr. Charles Lozar. She had a daughter Dorothea C Lozar? Her name before marriage is Stoutenburgh from the Salnalic Michigan area. Maybe Born 1888 ? She owned some buildings in Sheridan, Michigan. There is a Vera Grimes that I'm hearing of? Dorothea is my Mom's adoptive Mother with Ferris Thompson. They lived in Fenwick, Mi... Myrtle is buried at Evergreen Cemetary in Sheridan , MI? Any help on this Thompson -Lozar, Gould line would be great..They had a big fire in 1955??? I have lots of old pictures and stuff on this family...

RE: Jemima Mercer
Hi Robert - I can't resolve the David/William issue, but I also found David "Cimble" listed as her father in the 1861 Census of Canada, where her name is listed as "Jamima Cimble". And, her name is listed in the obit on David Kimball's record. Sibling names also match. The only place I found "William listed was on the index-only death record, which I can't review online. I wonder if that is an error. -- Linda

RE: Emely Portice
She was George's first wife (he married 4x) ... only Mary Ann married both brothers; this has been most confusing to sort out as names recorded differently on various records!

RE: Mary Ann Young Portice
Yes, George's father George, is in findagrave at

I assume that someone estimated the 1881 birth date because that is the parents got married.

I have put in a request to correct both the birth date and death location for George Marsden.

The given names of George, Marsden, and William are pretty common for the Marsden Portice descendants. In my records alone I have probably a half dozen of each so it is easy to have a mix up.

I am not aware of any issues with your work and I thank you for your time and diligence.

Near as I can tell there are two maybe three Portice groups in Michigan. One are the descendants of Marsden Portice I, Zelotes's father.
Another is a group in the U.P. in the Chippewa County area. A third is a group in the Saginaw area who are not related to the first group, but may be to the second.

I have record for over 100 people with the Portice surname that are in the first group though not necessarily in finadagrave.

RE: Mary Ann Young Portice
George and Zelotus are brothers, but different people. See the public note I sent to Pat Allan which explains this.

Ora Leonard Keenmon was the name of Mary's husband, which is why she was refered to as Mrs. Ora Keenmon. Both Mary and Cora are daughters of Mary and Zelotus.

I would be interested in a good copy of the 1894 census. Is it online?
