Thank you! That's all I've found as well. I can't find anything about her before or after. No Surname, either.

One census has her born LA another KY, years are a little different - with Godfrey as hubby, the older children
Mathilde, Caliste etc work out abt the same (diff. birth years) but close enough.....1-2 years off.
Any baptism records ?
I don't have all of Hebert's & BR Diocese books
didn't find the Provost family in them.
Checked Prevost & Provost spelling.
Maybe someone else will see your query has more info.

Thank you so much! That has got to be her. I'll start digging around in KY. Thank you again.

We have nothing on my dad's side of his family. This is a lot of help.

The 1900 and 1910 census
The 1900 & 1910 census records were badly filmed
and very hard to read.
As you can see there are transcribed errors in surname.
Well I think I found most of the family
Good luck in your searching
