Pennsylvania, Land of our Ancestors. York, Pennsylvania. Dobbin’s Classical School. Wallace Cross Mill. Guinston Church. The Search Begins 2000. Both Bill and Gaye were searching for their Proudfit heritage in the summer of 2000.
During his visit, Bill discovers the original Proudfoot-Wallace homestead with the help of Helen Breneman Miller who currently owns about half of Proudfit Point land grant.
How many people drove by and didn’t realize what they were looking at?
Would you have known this was the 1760 home of Andrew Proudfoot??
On November 7, 2001, Gary Geiselman of Olde York Homes submitted an outline of work to be done on the Proudfoot-Wallace log home during the first phase of restoration. When more decisions have been made regarding the scope and definition of the project, Mr. Geisleman will be able to develop cost estimates and investigate potential grant sources. Phase I will include:
The artist’s rendition of the restored Proudfoot-Wallace cabin.
Robert Shaub, Vice President of our association, spent countless hours since the 2001 reunion clearing the McAlister Graveyard where Andrew and Sarah Proudfoot are buried. He recovered most of the pieces of their broken gravestones and arranged for the restoration of the markers.
Good news! The Proudfit Family Association has been incorporated as a nonprofit entity, as approved by the group present at last year’s annual meeting. Donations to our group are tax deductible.
