just recieved yous message regarding the porteils family. My Nan (Still living) was the second of nine children born to William Xavier Porteils and Myrtle May Kenney. I have little bits of information on each one of her siblings, as I also do for each of Williams Sibling. The only thing I have on John Ernest is I believe he died in 1943. William was the 5th of 11 children born to Julian Porteils and Margaret (Maggie) Ryan, I also have small pieces of info on them as well.
I am happy to send you what information I have either by email or post if you like.
