Croatians (from Dalmatia) to Parsons Ave. 1900-1915
We are looking for several families that lived on Parsons Ave.Apparently, there were several (many?) boarding houses where people were going to from Dalmatia in the early 1900s.
We are looking specifically for:
Cameljic, Mate – b. at 1874, immig. 1909 to “cousin ? Lancori?”[*], Parsons Ave.
(several spellings in US: Camelic, Cemelic, Cemelich)
There were approximately 60 people on that ship from the Island of Pag, Dalmatia, many of them travelling to Parsons Ave.! ( Over the years from 1900-1915, hundreds of people went to Parsons Ave.)
Also looking for:
Zubovic/Zubovich: Several on this ship were going to cousin/uncle, etc.
Ostaric, Marco/Mark/Martin b. abt. 1880 wife Matya, b. abt 1881 (arrived 1911)
We believe he is related to the Zubovich and Cemeljic families in Dalmatia.
*Loncarric, John: found a death record, d. 1912 in Columbus, Ohio, age 22
(hismother was Mary Ostaric)
Other spellings per death records: Loncarev, Loncarevic, Loncaric
I have searched find-a-grave with no luck on these families; also the 1910 census on ancestry.com has not turned up these families.The spellings were butchered in this country – that may be my problem.
I found some Zubovich men, but they are boarders – not householders who could act as hosts for these Dalmatian men.
Does anyone know which of the 8 wards (&page#) Parsons Ave. was recorded during the 1910 census?
Any help on these families would be appreciated!
