I was wondering about the religious history of the Portis families represented on this message board. In my research online I found where one Portis line was Jewish. My fathers family was Methodist, which I assume came from his mothers line since they lived in the same area where she was raised. I will note my grandfather Midkiff was a faithful man to the house of God and frequented local assemblies when he was on the road working. It is from his mother that I am a Portis descendant. Is there anyone out there that would like to share this type info?
