Frank Provo I

from Provo Family History, by Birdie Villeneuve:

Grandpa was Parisian French.  He migrated to this part of the country from the state of Vermont.

He married Abigail Sarah Young in April of 1846 in Foster, Québec and brought her here by boat from Montréal, Québec.  He had evidently met her when he lived in Vermont which was near to Foster.

Grandpa was a carpenter and contractor.  He built some of the first homes in Escanaba.  Two were his own at 206 and 208 South 6th St.  He also lived and farmed at Flat Rock, Michigan.  Grandpa was quite well-to-do and loaned out money.  Thus he came into ownership of quite a lot of property when people failed to pay their loans.

I've been told there is a receipt at the historical Museum in Escanaba for carpentry work he did for someone.
