Surnames: PROFFITT, ROUSH
According to Vol. 1 of the ROUSH FAMILIES IN AMERICA by Lester L. Roush, 1929, p. 433, here is your line:

Matilda ROUSH b. 01 Apr 1842; d. 11 Feb 1925; m. 13 Oct 1859 to James F. PROFFITT. He d. 04 Oct 1902.

Matilda was the daughter of Michael ROUSH b. 04 Jan 1783 Shenandoah Co, VA; ; m. 04 Nov 1817 to Mary Elizbeth OLIVER. He is buried on Windon Place above Graham Station, WV and the location of his grave is unknown. She is buriedin Odd Fellows' Cemetery near New Haven, WV.

Michael ROUSH is the son of George ROUSH & Catherine ZERKEL.
George is a soldier of the American Revolution buried in Weldon Cemetery, Racine, Meigs County, Ohio, with his second wife, Mrs. Catharine WOLFE.

George ROUSH is the son of John Adam RAUSCH and Susannah SCHLER. Be careful as many people misspell her maiden name as SEHLER, which is INCORRECT! My mother and I descend from George & Catherine ROUSH.

If you have anyone interested in membership Sons of the American Revolution (S.A.R.) on the ROUSH line, let me know.
We have a large chapter of the S.A.R. here in Pomeroy, OH.

I have more ancestry on the ROUSH and ZERKEL lines.

I don't seem to see you listed in the 4th volume of the ROUSH FAMILY IN AMERICA.
