Provo from Meigs County Ohio

I don't know if I am related to any of the Provos on this message board, but I would like to post the information I do have. My great grandfather was Samuel Lewis Barber.He was married to Gertrude Caroline or Oraline Provo. Gertrude was born in Ohio in November 1865, but her parents were both born in West Virginia. Samuel Barber was born in Ohio in 1860. His mother was born in Ohio and his father in Penn. Samuel and Gertrude's children were Chester, Grace (mispelled as Ginne in the 1910 census), Ora (my grandmother), Golda, Lola, Belle, Lester and Mildred(born after the 1910 census). In 1900, they lived in Olive Township, Meigs County, Ohio in a place called Longbottom. In the 1910 census, they had moved to Athens County to a place called Coolville. On my materal grandmothers side, I don't know how far back, but I was told that my GGGG?Grandmother was a full blooded Indian. She was born in E.Canada, then moved to Ohio via West Virginia. The named Syfer or Syfert was recently mentioned by my Dad as a Provo marrying a Syfer(t). If anyone has any information, I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks in advance for any help
