Proffers of Cape Girardeau, MO area

I am trying to find information on my Proffer ancestors who lived in the Southeast Missouri area. My Great Grandmother was

Vada Sylvania Proffer
b. October 22, 1883 Burfordville, MO
d. November 9, 1961 Hayti, Mo
she was married to an A.G. Sanders

Her father was
George Washington Proffer
B. January 3, 1847
D. August 3, 1924
he married Mariah Link on January 2, 1872 in Cape Girardeau, MO

His father was
John F. Proffer
B. 1819
D. 1900
he was married in November 1938

That is as far back as my known line goes however I have much more information on descendants of John F. Proffer. I am sure that my line must tie in with the better known Proffer line of this area and I would like to make the connection.
Thanks, Kevin Garrett
