It's been confirmed by two different people, one on this list, and another on Yahoo, that Jandek grew up in Providence and recorded his early material there, at least the stuff up until Nancy dissapears: 
  in random conversation with a girl i know from providence, i discovered that her mom, who was also one of my high school english teachers, used to 'date' jandek back in her younger years. they apparently traveled the country together in a hearse, and she sang on one of his records..'nancy' or something like that. weird huh.
  A friend from Providence, Rhode Islandıs mother is good friends with the
woman known as "Nancy" on some of the early recordings. She lives in Providence and sterling visits her on and off. Supposedly he grew up there. And this isnıt one of those a friend of a friend of a friend told me..... Its well informed.

Now you know.
  Now, Jandek flatly denies having ever been to Providence, but of course we can't trust him. I bet he just doesn't want people searching out his family. In fact all you'd have to do is go down to Providence town hall and search the birth records for a Sterling Richard Smith born on October 26th, 1945...
