Camberg and Kamberg's in PA
Hi, I'm Trying to reach Terry Camberg Longo and her relatives. She and most of her family lived in PA.
I was looking through my correspondence with her from
1998, and her oldest known ancestors were:
John August Kamberg (came to the US in 1882)
b. Aug. 23, 1865 Kalm Lam, Sweden
d. Dec.4, 1908
m. to Caroline Christina Johnson on Dec. 17, 1887
in Gazzam, Clearfield County, PA.
Caroline Christina Johnson
b. Jan 29, 1860 Kalm Lam, Sweden
I noticed that John and Caroline's children spell their
Terry's grandfather is Albin Leonard Camberg b. 1891
d. 1974 Married Ethel Strong.
Terry's Father William Camberg married Mae Belle Rhone.
Terry's siblings are Linda, William and Kevin, and she
is related to a Rev. Larry Camberg.
I suspect that we may have a connection through John August
Kamberg. He very well could be the brother or cousin of my husbands grandfather Nils/Nels Andrew Camberg b. Mar. 9, 1859 Kalmer, Sweden d. Dec. 6, 1930 Oregon USA. (Nils would be 6 years older than John)
Terry once told me that there was a family story of an "Uncle" who lived in the mid-West and Oregon, and they never heard from him again. My records show that the ONLY Camberg to be in Oregon during the early 1900's was Nils Camberg. This has to be the connection. (In some census records, his last name was mispelled as Calmberg. I'm sure he had a Swedish accent and they wrote it as it sounded.).
We recently learned that Nils father's name was John Anderson married to Christina Johnson (sorry, no dates on them). Your John is not old enough to be Nils father, but old enough to be a brother (and possibly named after his father). We knew Nils had 2 sisters (Clara and Amanda
Anderson, who according to Susan Linn (nee Schlotterbeck, a
descendant of Clara Anderson) lived in the Boston, Mass. area), but a brother was never mentioned. Maybe they didn't get along for some reason (or maybe they were cousins?) But if they were brother's, then the Uncle theory would fit.
I was wondering if John August Kamberg was still their oldest known ancestor, or if they now know the name of his parents? Could Nils Andrew Camberg's parents also be John August Kamberg's parent's?
Anxious to hear from all descendants of John August Kamberg.
