Re: Irondale Provinces 1900
My mother was Laura "Catherine" Meek, she went to Hazel Glenn School with you. Her grandfather, Bert Meek, raised her. Bert's sister was Anna Meek. Bert's wife was Nannie Mae Horton, her sister Laura (my mom's namesake) married Richard Province. Bert's daughters Lucille and Edyth married Bill and Norman Province (sons of W.V.Province) and my mom married Arthur Province (also a son of W.V. Province).My mother is 77 and still living in St. Louis.W.V.(William Valentine) Province was the son of John Lafayette Province. John's brother was your grandfather, Joseph Province. I'm hoping for confirmation from another family member.
