Hugh Melvin Basil Proffitt, son of John Smith Proffitt and Prudence Elizabeth Phillips, married Leath Lodgston sometime between 1930 and 1940. Hugh went by the name Basil, and was born (1898) and died (1954)in Kansas.From the 1940 census you can calculate her birth year about 1911 in Oklahoma. I do not find her in the Social Security Death Index. I would assume that she has passed away, but am unable to find a record of her death. Hoping someone knows.
