Re: JAMES PROVINCE - GREENE CO., PA
Hope you can clear up some confusion re a Pleasant Altman.In the 1850 census Monongalia Co. (W)VA (publ census p. 136) is Levi Arnett his wife and two children Sarah & Perry and a Plesant Altman age 9.Levi's dau. Lucretia was married to John William Provance and they were living next door to Levi.But on page 116 is a Benjamin F. & Elizabeth Province b. PA and the first child shown is Plesant A. age 9 b. PA which would seem to be a duplicate of the Plesant Altman age 9 with Levi Arnett.Also in Benjamin's household is Joseph Y. age 7 PA, Spencer 5 VA and Rachel A. 2 VA.
Was this Benjamin F. a brother of John William who married Lucretia Arnett?Was the Plesant A. or Altman the same child (male or female).Did not find Benjamin or John William Province in the 1860 Monongalia Co. census.Did they both go to Ohio or another county?
