    As Furious Unicorn indicates, without knowing a time frame, it is difficult to try to track down any information for you.

    Hornings Mills is in Melancthon Township, Dufferin County, Ontario, Canada.

    In the 1911 Canada census (the most recent Canada census records available to the public), I found only one person named Proctor living in Melancthon Township: Howard Proctor, born June 1890 in Ontario, and working as a hired farm hand.

    In 1911, there were 10 others with the surname Proctor living in other parts of Dufferin Co., Ontario:

    Please edit your question with Additional Details. If you are seeking information which happended within some recent years and was about someone named Proctor from the spot in the road named Hornings Mills, Melancthon Township, Dufferin Co., Ontario, you may need to contact one of the newspapers for that area to see if there were any news stories printed.

    The newspapers I found printed in Dufferin Co. are the Orangeville Citizen and the Orangeville Banner, both based in the county seat, Orangeville.

    Since you are in Canada, also visit your local public library and talk with a reference library regarding your question. He/she may be able to direct you to some sources of information.
