Historical Sketch of the Proudfit Family of York County, Pennsylvania

by Margaret Compton, 1911

 The Ultimate Resource!!!

The New Proudfit Genealogy Reprint of Margaret Compton's Historical Sketch of the Proudfit family is now available for purchase.  

The Proudfit Family Association has reprinted the Historical Sketch of the Proudfit Family of York County, Pennsylvania compiled by Margaret Compton and published in Meadville, Pennsylvania in 1911. The book includes information on the immigrant Andrew Proudfoot and his brothers and gives a complete record of the descendants of Alexander Proudfit (second son of Andrew Proudfoot and Sarah Wallace) and Martha McCleary.

The appendix contains the family entries from Andrew Proudfoot’s Bible, a copy of his last will and testament, an inventory of his estate, Sarah Proudfoot’s last will and testament, notes from Andrew Proudfoot’s "trial" for heresy, a letter written by Andrew giving his views on the subject of grace, muster roll for Lt. McKis-sick’s Company in the Revolutionary War, and a Scottish ditty sung by Alexander Proudfit for his children and passed down through the generations.

The book is 100 pages, soft cover, perfect bound with a full-name index and the 21 photographs from the original publication. The cover of the reprint repeats that of the original volume — red with gold lettering.  Many thanks to Judith McGarvey for her work.
