Preston Vernon Elmira Donald Ernest
Vernon Edward Provost was my grandfather born on Sept. 27, 1913 he was a machinist who worked in the food industry either reparing or building food equiptment. He died on Sept. 22, 1980. He was married to Pasquailina Rose Serafino born on Aug. 14, 1913 in Springfield Massachusetts, died Dec. 12, 1992. they had three children:

James Vernon Provost-brother myself Diana Marie Jager
Agustino Serafino (or Agostino,Agcustino) and Carmela Mesisco (or Carmella) were my grandmother Pasquailina Rose Serafino's parents. He was born in New York,NY and she was born in Italy I think they also migrated to Massachusetts.
To my understanding The Provost Side migrated from Canada to Springfield Massachusettes. I don't know a lot about the Provost or Serafino side if someone out there has information and would help me It would be greatly appreciated.
