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.

Does anyone know about these children?

Pleaes email me at
