The only John Prouty from Ireland that I found was John Prouty born in 1829. He lived in Newbury, Orange Co., Vermont on 24 Jul 1850. He married Ann. I found him again in 1880 in Cleveland, Ohio, with one daughter, Agnes. I have heard that there were Proutys from Ireland, but have not been able to consistantly find Proutys who stated they were born in Ireland.
