Monday occurred the funeral of Mrs. Geo. Proffit from the M. E. church, Rev. Clark conducting the services. Mrs. Proffit passed quietly away at the home of her husband three miles southwest of here, in Holt county, Sunday, having been an invalid for nine years.  She, with her husband, was among the early settlers of this country and was, at the time of her death, about 68 [sic] years of age. A husband, four sons and two daughters mourn her departure from this life.-- Fillmore Lever, Sep. 22, 1899
