Mike Watson: re: Neatsville, Dr. Perryman, and Dr. Portman

Mike Watson writes:
Ed, I have read with interest the great stories of local history and nostalgia of late. Mrs. Grant\'s history of Neatsville/Neetsville/Neatsburg is a fine piece of detection and writing. She has contributed so much to those of us who enjoy such things. There was a Dr. Portman practicing in the area of Neatsville at one time. Dr. Osborne Portman practiced medicine in Adair in the 1850s and 1860s. He was biornb about 1807 and died before 1870 in Casey County. Dr. Richard H. Perryman, also practiced in this area. He was born 1840 in Russell County, was a Civil War veteran, and died in 1924. As of 1906 he had been in practice for 43 years. Mike Watson --mike watson
