Looking for any one with information concerning my gggrandmother Catherine Cohee. Catherine was born 1861 IL. She married William W. Provance, my gggrandfather, who was born 1848 TN. They were married in Sand Ridge, Menard Co. IL July 3, 1879. She was on the 1870 census Menard Co. IL living with Alonzo King and Ann Cohee King. Ann Cohee King was listed as age 19 and Catherine was listed as 9 years old. So Catherine was not their child unless Ann was 9 or 10 when she had her. There was no relation noted after Catherine's name on the census. I found her on the 1900 MO census in Camden Co then again in 1920 OK census in Delaware Co wife to William W. Provance. . I know they had atleast 9 children: Mary M. bn 1881 (my ggrandmother she married a Thomas William Bird abt 1897), Samuel bn 1883 NB, William H bn 1886 NB, Louis bn 1889 TN, Carl bn 1890 MO, Cora bn 1894 MO, Margaret bn 1897 MO, Benjamin "Bennie" bn 1900 MO, and Maudie bn 1903 MO. I would like to find out who Catherine's parents were and any other information that anyone could share with me.
