This is the son of my great aunt Mat Hicks Portwood she was born in paulding co ga and moved to Atlanta after she married. Her husband was Joul Hulsey Portwood, Mom say that Chessel died in Powder Springs Ga when his house blew up,from a natural gas leak, many years ago, after he had left home. I now have a scribble book that belonged to Hulsey and he has scribbled his name in it and he wrote when he was born and I am Joul Hulsey Portwood in it. This I found in some old stuff that my grandmother had saved and she died in 1943.


Joy Howard Martha Jane Hicks Portwood was married to Charles
(Chessel) Portwood. I was told that he actually
did not die in house fire but died many yrs later
of Heart Attack. He live in Atlanta not Decatur
but he was from Brasell Mt. GA in Paulding Co GA,
before moving to Atlanta.
