Surname LaBarber

Postby FDooks » 10 Jan 2009, 17:29

Hello again,

I am helping my girlfriend check into her family history. I found out (on her grandmother's side) information dating back to the mid 1700's! Absolutely shocking and excellent.

However on her grandfathers side, he must have been in hiding because we cannot locate anything.

We have her grandfather's info as:

Samuel Lawrence LaBarber (possibly Labarbera)
Born Apr 12, 1898 in Villafrate, Italy
Past away in September of 1971
Married to Annina (Lena) Bongiovanni

Parents are Lawrence LaBarber
Born around 1852
Immigrated in 1900
Married to Rosalia ??? (possible Calaty or Calati) who was born around 1865

Any further info would be great. I have access to ancersty.com so if you need any info that I can lookup, I'd be happy to help.

Thank you,

Frank
Looking for information on the names:
D'Amore, DeLuca, Cordova, Russo, Petrino, DiGiacomo

Any help is greatly appreciated.

First of all the town is, (I suspect) Villafrate and the proprer spelling is La Barbera since there are 21 persons with that spelling in Villafrati (PA) Sicily. Go to www.paginebianche,.it and take a look yourself. =Peter=

Hello.

These are great finds. These are all related as well.

Nicolo was the brother of Samuel (one of the 11 children).
--Valarie - did you happen to see where it stated 11 children / 7 living? (at the time). I checked on the census but it's hard for me to read.

Calato (Rosalia) was married to Samuel LaBarber - therefore making Lorenzo join Rosalia's brother - Pietro

Thanks and I hope to find more from there!

Sure, look just to the right of Rose's name: married 30 years, 11 children born, 7 children living
OK?
Valarie

These may help in case you don't already have them.
Ancestry has a complete set of census blanks, they really help in deciphering blurry census images
