Does anyone know who these Portis children belonged to or anything about them?I found this info in the Guilford Co., NC Bonds and Indenture records.
Silas Portis, male orphan, age 11 indentured to Richard Hayworth on 2-22-1817 until the age of 21.
Ira Portis, male orphan, age 10 indentured to Jno. Chipman on 11-19-1818 until age 21.
Isham Portis, male, age 6 indentured to William Lambert and wife Margery (Forster) Lambert on 11-15-1819 until the age of 21 making malt and brewing beer.
Isham Portis that married Elizabeth Hoover in Guilford Co in 1838 are my 3rd great grandparents but I don't know if this is the same Isham Portis.He's the only one of the 3 boys that doesn't say he's an orphan.
