Looking for information on John PREVO who received four Land Patents in Harrison Co. MO in 1854, 1855, and 1857. Trying to find out if this John PREVO may have been from Wayne Co. KY and a son of John PREVO, born in the 1770's in NC. My line of PREVO runs through James B. PREVO, a brother to John PREVO. My James B. PREVO, b. 1799, stayed in KY. Another brother, Clark PREVO, may have also migrated to Missouri.
