Thank you for responding to my post! I had missed changing my e-mail address on this forum. It is now:firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have great amounts of information on the Portman, Whaley, McIntier/McIntyre and Wright lines. I am very interested in finding out more about your sources. I have been struggling with the McIntyre line until just over a year ago when a few inquiries led me to contacts with Whaley, Portman, Beebe and other related lines.
I will send another e-mail to you directly, inviting you to a website in which these 'cousins' share additional information and photos.
