RE: David Proudfoot
Rachel, it appears we are cousins of a sort. David is my 2nd gr grand uncle. His sister Rachel is my Gr Gr Grandmother. She married Mikel Schell and they moved to Labette County, Kansas. Their daughter, Mary married my gr grandfather Elias L "Nice" McKee and their son Leo is my grandfather.

Anyway, what information I have is from Marcella (Jones) Packer. She and my grandparents corresponded and I am pretty sure she at one time visited in Edna and I know my grandparents went there several times to take Mary and Nice for a visit.

She had done extensive research on the Stoltzfuss/Proudfoot line. I have no idea what happened to her research when she died. They lived in the Whitehouse OH area all their lives so you might contact the local historical society to see if they might have inherited her research materials or maybe one of the kids. Looks like to me I have one daughter living and that is Joyce Irene. Unfortunately I don't have a married name for her (if she was married). Someone in the area might know her. She was born in 1928. I show all the other children of Clarence and Marcella are now deceased.

I think you have missed a link. David has a daughter, Ida Mae who married a Jones and her daughter is Marcella (Jones) Packer. David's father: Finerial Stoltzfuss first married Hester Browne and they had two son: Samuel and Karl. After she died, he married Hephzibah Longenecker and they had 9 children, two of which are David and Rachel. Samuel's oldest son, William Irving married Ida Mae McCaskey. So David and Samuel were half siblings.

Here is what I know about the name change: The Stoltzfuss' came from Germany. They were Prussian soldiers. After the war, they stayed and at that time they changed their name to Proudfoot. Something about being accepted.

All of the information we have on this line came from Marcella (Jones) Packer. I would be more than happy to copy my file and print out what I have and send you to if you are interested. That is, if you are interested in more than just Samuel's direct line. I don't have much Ida.

Please contact me thru my email: So much easier that way than leaving messages on the board. Sometimes if I get busy I don't read the messages as quickly as I should.
