FEEDBACK: Neatsville article. May have been just one doctor

'Dr. Portman' is probably Dr. Perryman in Mrs. Grant's article

E. H. Lepiarczyk
I believe 'Dr. Portman' is probably Dr. Perryman.

I have heard the Perryman name pronounced with only two syllables at times and it would sound similar to 'Portman' perhaps.

Also the Perryman family name has been spelled various ways. Perryman is the preferred spelling of my ancestral family name.

Dr. Perryman is a descendant of my ancestors, William Perryman 1759-1854 and Ann Stokes Perryman before 1762 after 1829.

The Perryman family was among pioneers of Adair County. William Perryman was militarily engaged during the War of the American Revolution.

His grave is in the Perryman Cemetery, Russell County. The area of Adair County where William Perryman lived became part of Russell County.

It will be good to communicate with anyone who is interested in the genealogy of the Perryman family. My Perryman family lineage includes I. John Perryman. II. William Perryman. III. Sarah Perryman Grider. IV. James Grider. V. Daniel Marion Grider. VI. Katherine Louise Grider Lepiarczyk. VII. Erwin Heinrich Lepiarczyk II.
