Irma,

I have a large database of Portlock's including some that moved to Alabama. Do you know when Martha was born? Happy to help.

Hi Jim I have found out that Martha Portlock's family was John A. Portlock born 1802 in North Carolina, but I know nothing back from John. He married a Mahala Hudson in Florence, Lauderdale County, AL. He died there in November of 1878. Irma

Hi,

Do you have any information on the children of Martha Portlock and Samuel Woodruff? I have been trying to find anything on Portlock Woodruff. I had thought his given name was probably a family name. After reading your post, I'm even more convinced that there is a connection.

Thanks for any help.

Linda

I don't know re: Martha. This may be just a wild goose chase. I'm just getting started with this. I think Port would be my husband's great grandfather. Both grandfather and great grandfather died before he was born. His father(Walter Henry Woodruff, b. 3/22/1918) is no longer living as well. His grandfather was Oscar V. Woodruff (birthdate-1879) I think Port was born somewhere around 1853 and his wife, Anna, around 1859. They lived in Dooly County, Georgia-in probably what is now known as Byromville.

Thanks for any help.

At this point I don't think so. Thanks for your reply.

Woodruff never married died circa 1922 in Florence Alabama, John Hudson Woodruff - married, had one daughter, died 1912 Florence, Alabama. Irma

Thank you for your reply.

So far, all of my Woodruff's have lived in and around Byromville in Dooly County, GA. I've really just started researching. The fartherest I have been able to trace is Reuben Portlock Woodruff b.1853, married to Anna(Annie) Williams b. 1859. The only children I know of, as yet, are Oscar V. b.1879 d. 11/17/1938 and T. P. Woodruff(b. ?).
I had thought Portlock might be a family name and a possible connection.

Thanks again.
Linda
