Shedrick Hammond Prouty was the son of Ezra and Patience Hammond Prouty.He lived in Smethport, McKean Co., Pa, and was visiting his son James S. evidently, as he was enumerated in Smethport, too. Shedrick married Roxanie and they had four known children" James S., Augusta H., Jason Lester, and Mary Jane. Several of Ezra's descendants have names of the Penn. line, ie Chester William, Levi, and he is one of my suspects for a possible link to the Penn. Proutys.Ezra was b. in Worthington, Mass, and lived in Yates, Ontario and Steuben Cos. in New York. Ezra is descended from Margaret Prouty, d/o Richard and Damaris.
