Hello Proudit family,
I am doing research on pioneer teachers in Kent County Michigan, 1833-1850. Milton M. Perry (teacher, leading attorney and counselor at law, b:1836) married Lenora Sinclair in 1864. Leonara's parents were Daniel H. Sinclair and Jane Proudfit. Jane was born May 15, 1807. Can you help me with additional information on the Proudfit line? I would be most happy to supply additional info on the marriage of Milton and Lenora.
With much appreciation,
Eileen Bennett

Branch of the Family Alexander Proudfit (1805-1859)
I don't find that your info here has any data on the children of Alexander Proudfit, b. 1805 in York, Pa. and d.1859 in Oskaloosa, Iowa.
I have been researching my Beatty family, one part of which moved to Oskaloosa in the 1850's --- a widow, Mary Ann (Gilmore) Beatty and four children. The oldest child, Sarah Elizabeth Beatty (1843-1927) married John A. Proudfit, son of Alexander and Margaret (Morrow) Proudfit in Oskaloosa on 30 Mar 1865. I have not looked for any sibs to John. John died on 11 April 1898, and is buried in Oskaloosa (Forest Cemetery).
Sarah and John had 6 chn but few descendants. Only two chn were known to have married but none of their possible descendants can be located.
This absence of descendants is doubtless why your records have no info on the Oskaloosa family.
Would appreciate an opportunity to discuss this addition with someone.

A Proudfit family member gave my Dad information of his family tree tracing back to Andrew Proudfit of Perthshire,Scotland.

Branch of the Family therein lies the question!
Does anyone have any Proudfoot history in the Carlisle, PA area? My ggmother, Dessie Lee Ditzel, was actually the illegitmate child of Ida Collins and a mystery Proudfoot man. She was born June 15, 1883. I have found the Collins plot in Mt Holly Springs, Pa, but have not found any Proudfoot graves. I also cannot find anyone with that surname in the area today. Thanks for any leads anyone may have.

Thank you for the efforts that you have made to make it possible to access this info by internet.

Branch of the Family 9th generation/Andrew Proudfit:My husband's maternal ancestors
I have thouroughly enjoyed this family website. I am researching my husband's genealogy. His maternal Grandmother was Margaret Davis Land of Enfield, IL. She was a genealogist, and published a book on the history of Enfield and White County, IL. I have some photographs from her of Dobbins Classical School, Gettysburg, where David and Robert Proudfit (sons of Andrew Proudfit and Sarah Wallace Proudfit) attended school. On the reverse of these photographs is a brief listing of the lineage to my husband's Mother. I was pleased to find out that the Dobbin House, which was used as a home and a Classical School, is still standing, and is on the Walking tour of Gettysburg. It was also used as a hospital for wounded soldiers (both Union and Confederate) following the battle of Gettysburg. I would like to verify that Andrew Proudfit/Proudfoot fought in the Revolutionary War.

My husband is Henrys great grandson by his first marriage to Annie Wayman. She died giving birth to his grandfather and his twin sister Dorrie.
Henry married Ellen on 7/Sept/1883,(I think your date is wrong ),and she gave birth to their son Howard Maurice Edmunds in 1883(not sure of date yet).
Ellen returned to Rhode Island where she died,22/May 1928 months after Henrys death.
Howard married Nora Caroe and died in New York, 9/Jan/1962
Howard and Ellen are buried in Swan Point,Providence.
I haveplenty of other details if you are interested.Henry was a very interesting man. He introduced Henry Rolls to Charles Royce of Rolls Royce motor cars and was a pioneer and correspondent with Edison.
