"The following info is by Greg Raike"
Albert Proffitt was born December 27, 1900, died November 28, 1937.

He was hit by a car while he was walking on a highway and died later. I have a copy of his death certificate from Indiana, but the copy is not a very good one.

From another source from a book of obituaries, I have a piece from the London, KY newspaper about his death. It states that he was brought back to Kentucky for burial in the Proffitt Cemetery. There is more than one Proffitt Cemetery in that area, but maybe the one in Laurel Co., as his services were conducted from the Rawlings Funeral Home in London KY. and the interment will follow in the Proffitt Cemetery. This obit was in the London, KY newpaper either the 1st or 2nd of December, 1937. The right edge of the old newspaper is cut off but the obit is OK to read.

Albert was the son of B. B. (Blevins Beverly) Proffitt and Mary Gray.

I have checked the burials for Laurel Co., but did not find him listed. It could be if he had a metal marker, there may not be a marker today.

Information provided by Fred Davis, Proffitt Researcher, Dallas, TX. As a Proffitt descendant, (but not closely related to this line) we share the same common ancestor. I have worked on this surname for almost 40 years now. Proffitt is my maternal grandmother's maiden name.
