Carolyn, I am writing to see if you are still around at this ancestry site. I have found the marriage registration of my original English Prouts - Thomas m Catherine Galsworthy in Cornwall, England and there was a notation in the marriage registration that said 'gone to America' .... Of course they did not. They came to Canada and settled in Ontario .... finally following their eldest son Thomas to Portage La Prairie, Manitoba. This Elizabeth Knott was the daughter of Thomas and Catherine (Kitty) .... there were a few more children all of which I located save one ..... a daughter Mary. If you are still here please drop me a line and perhaps we can compare notes on this Prout Family?
