Thanks for your response Denis.  The following files are all in the directory:
2014Spring_Flood_Drawn.cpg  2014Spring_Flood_Drawn.sbx
2014Spring_Flood_Drawn.dbf  2014Spring_Flood_Drawn.shp
2014Spring_Flood_Drawn.prj  2014Spring_Flood_Drawn.shp.xml
2014Spring_Flood_Drawn.sbn  2014Spring_Flood_Drawn.shx

So, the prj file is there...or am I misunderstanding?  Thanks.
