What do you know about the given name "Provie." My aunt, born in Estill County in 1910 was named Provie. (daughter of Samantha Gray and Daniel Hoover. She never knew where the name came from. In visiting the Gray Cemetery in Estill County, we found Provie Campbell b. 1887, daughter of Sarah Jane Gray. The two Provie's were first cousins. Is Provie short for Providence? Anyone know?
