Beverly Portlock George Henry was born in New Albany, IN in 1825. His family was in Concordia, LA for a few years during the Civil War as a steam boat captain. Two children were born there. I have absolutely no information about his parents, so maybe there could be a connection somewhere along the line. The rest of his life before and after the Civil War was spent in and around Cincinnati. Bev. Portlock
