Generation No. 3

 8.  Moses3 Proffer (George2, John1) was born January 28, 1810 in North Carolina, and died October 26, 1879 in Stoddard Co., Missouri.  He married Sarah "Sally" Courtner September 20, 1836 in Cape Girardeau County, Missouri.  She was born January 28, 1810 in Missouri, and died October 27, 1879.

Notes for Moses Proffer:
Moses Proffer is buried in Harper Cemetery near Aid, Missouri according to Alice Proffer-Spillman who wrote the book, History of the Proffer Family in Cape Girardeau Co. & Stoddard Co.

However, I cannot find his name in the Stoddard Co. Cemetery Book buried at this cemetery, but I find Sarah Proffer b. 28 Jan 1810, d. 27 Oct 1879.  I believe this is Sarah the wife of Moses as the birth date corresponds with her birthdate in the Proffer book of 1810.

Location of Harper Cemetery:  S24 T26 R9
Directions:  From Bloomfield, travel west on Highway J to Highway F. Travel south to County Road 420.  Travel east .8 mile.  Harper Cemetery is on the north side of the road.
