Quarry near Boston & Provard graves
Posted by: Nicole Markward (ID *****0320) Date: April 08, 2007 at 07:18:55

I'm looking for any info on the Provard family or the quarry they owned, according to family history. Samuel Provard & his wife Elizabeth Pentz Provard, along with several children moved to IN sometime after 1870 from Franklin County PA. Samuel and his oldest son Jacob died in 1879, supposedly in a mining accident. This is supported by the fact that Elizabeth and some children appear in Boston IN on the 1880 census without those two men and with another son, John, listed as a stonecutter. Supposedly, Elizabeth gave the quarry to the workers before she moved the family back to PA.

I would very much like to find the graves of Samuel & Jacob, perhaps a newspaper article about the accident, and of course the location of the quarry. If anyone could give me any pointers on online sources I could use or places I could get lookups (I live in PA) I would really appreciate it.
