SCIAMBRA

(Shambro Family History)

Revised 2004 

             

Preface  

After a recent visit to Convent and Union , Louisiana , I feel strongly that the real Shambro family name is spelled “SCIAMBRA” and pronounced “SHUM-PRA”.  The ships index and records of the area clearly indicate that Sciambra is the correct spelling.  In future research, this spelling should be used especially in Sicily .  

Ancient History  

The First Sciambra's arrived in Sicily about 1593.  They were refugees, possibly of nobility, from Greece , Albania and Yugoslavia .  For over 300 years, the area of Greece , Albania , Yugoslavia and other parts were fighting.  Most of the fighting dealt with differences in Muslim and Christian viewpoints.  The City of Contessa Entillina , one of several "Arberesh" Villages, was set up to handle the influx of Christians leaving the war area. The "Arberesh" are clans or tribes of people that were fiercely loyal to their individual clan or group of people. Many of the arriving refugees did not stay in Contessa very long because they were used to larger cities. I am not sure where our family originated from in Sicily , but it seems, all Sciambra's started in and around Contessa and

they were of Greek or Albanian descent. Please read the Sciambra Ancient History File, or , on the Internet, Type "Contessa Entellina".

 1800’s History  

The root causes for the great migrations of the late 1800’s is traced to the unification of Italy , which was completed in 1860.  At that point, a miriad of mini states, each with its own bureaucracy, army, laws and fiscal organization, ceased to exist.  The new state simply did not have the trained personnel to implement the very purpose for which the war of unification was fought: unity and uniform institutions.  The situation became even more chaotic when the “Piedmontese Monarchy” tried to replenish its treasury depleted during the war by raising taxes, and rebuild its army by general conscription of the very young men who, after serving for years under the Bourbon king had revolted to join Garibaldi in a dream of freedom…”Of the 70,000 called in the Neapolitan provinces, 20,000 showed up for the ‘Leva” [selective service].

The southern Italian states had for centuries developed an economy based on “cottage industries” such as linen, flack, wool, cotton and silk, cheeses, salami, preserves and sauces, etc.  All this employed the men in the agricultural sector and a good number of women in the home processing industry.  If not rich, people at least made a living.  With unification, the industrialized north rapidly displaces these workers with their cheaper products.  Poverty and even hunger replaced the dream of plenty which had made unification possible.  Revolts and social unrest are met with force by the northern authorities who now pursue even those who did not show for “Leva” as ‘Brigands’.

This is the genesis of what soon became a vast wave of migration from the south of Italy to the shores of the New World .  Other factors of course converged to accelerate the process: news of the very success of those who came before, several pestilences and at least one earthquake, and of course wars.

 Zacheri and Anna Sciambra

Zackeri Shambro, 42, and Anna(Sulle) Shambro, 28 began their life in the United States on November 7, 1892 .  They arrived aboard the ship SS Trinacria.  With them were 2 sons Ignazio,13, and Salvatore, infant.  Surprisingly missing from the ships log is their seven year old daughter Carmella. Why she did not make the trip with the rest of the family is a mystery.  But, Ellis island records show that she came to America on January 8, 1899 aboard the ship Britannia.  Her place of origin was “Palazzo Adriano , Sicily .”

Comment: Note the age difference between Ignazio, Carmella and Salvatore [at least five years]. It is my contention that Zackeri came to America a couple of times before bringing his family over.  He may have came around the birth of Ignazio, and then around Carmella’s birth, and then with his family in 1892.  

The ships index of people who landed at New Orleans indicate that some, not all, of the Shambro's place of origin was Contessa Entellina , Sicily , which is about 40 miles from Palermo .  Also, from the ships index, there were 26 other Shambro's(Sciambra) listed that came to this country between 1870 and 1897.  Since the Ellis island records are now available, I’ve noticed that our family possibly were from Palazzo Adriano.  

Zackeri and Anna's' life began on sugar plantations.  They lived in rented quarters provided by the plantation owners.  They picked and planted sugar cane and all other menial duties needed on the plantation.  Their lives were harsh.  Due to the language barrier, the Italian families stayed together, socialized, and prayed together.  The Venice Italian families of Carusso, Cicio, Svezia, Mangi, Ponce , Butch, Scaturro, Ferro and Gonlolpho were among the thousands of Italians working on the plantations.  Many of these families came aboard the same ships in the same time frame. ( See records of Louisiana )

In Convent, Louisiana , Zackeri and Anna had the rest of their children.  All of their children and place of birth are listed below:

             Ignazio                        b/1880                 Sicily

            Carmella                       b/1885                 Sicily

            Salvatore                      b/1892                 Sicily [assumed dead]

            Tony                             b/1893                 Convent, La.

            Josephine                     b/10-4-1894        Convent, La.

            Salvatore[Sam]             b/9-13-1896        Convent, La.

            Joseph                          b/Sept.1900         Convent, La.

            Nickoletta                     b/1-29-1904        Convent, La.

Between 1900 and 1910, Ignazio marries Dominica Lucito and on May 8, 1909 , Josephine marries Joe Malazzo.  I believe that these two couples were the first explorers and travelers of the Shambro family.  They were the first to leave Louisiana , have records outside of Convent, and the first to travel extensively, especially Josephine and her husband.  Also, on February 16, 1901 , Carmella Shambro married Dominic Mangiracino.  Carmella and Dominic may also have been traveling earlier than the rest of the family, but there are no records to indicate they were anywhere other than Convent.

The 1910 census shows the Zacheri Shambros' in Convent and having10 children of  which 7 survive.  I believe that the infant son Salvatori, who immigrated with Zackari and Anna, did not survive.  The census also shows that the Shambro's have 2 other living units probably next to each other.  Joe Malazzo and Josephine (Shambro) with no children, and Ignazio and Dominica Shambro with 3 children [Rg(Cliff), Annie, and Joseph].

Late in the same year, 1910, word came from Sicily that Zackeri’s father or Anne’s father was gravely ill and dying in Sicily .  Zackeri and Anna packed up their unmarred children [Salvatore, Gueseppe and Nickoletta] and went back to Sicily to be with the ill father.  On April 12, 1912 , the family entered Ellis Island for their return to Louisiana .  They were aboard the ship “ Princess Irene”.  Two and a half months later, on another ship on April 25, 1912 , Zackeri and Salvatore arrive at Ellis Islind aboard the ship “Konig Albert”.  It seems strange that the family would arrive and drop off three members of the family and then, turn around and go back to Sicily .  The Ellis Island records clearly indicate this to be the case.

Another interesting note on both the ships log is that place of residence is listed as “Palaggo”, or “Palago Ad”.  Looking at the map of Sicily , I find that there is no place called Palaggo.  The closest name to Palaggo is “Palazzo Adraino”. [This could be a good place to visit to see if our family is or was there.] 

Between 1905 and 1918, the Venice Italians began to migrate away from Convent.  The reason being, that the sugar plantations were dying off and jobs were getting scarce.  However, all families did not go to Venice right away.  By 1908, the Butchs', Ferros' Petrolias’ and Svezias' were in Streeter, Illinois working in a glass blowing factory.  It was here in Streetor that Angela Butch and Rose Svezia was born.  Streetor may also hold the grave of Rosalia Butch, infant. In 1912, The City Directory of Granite City has the Ferros' in North Venice at Weaver and Calhoun St .

About the same time the Svezia’s were in Venice , 1912,  Ignazio Shambro and Joe Malazzo families,  are in Southern Illinois and working in coal mines near Marion or Herin , Ill.   On June 10, 1913 , Ignazio and Dominica ’s fourth child was born.  Her name was Mary.  On January10, 1914, Mary, 7 months old, died of whooping cough.  Three days later, on January 13, 1914 , Anne died of the same Illness.  Anne was 7 years 2 months old at her death.  Mary and Annes' graves are recorded to be at Rose Hill Cemetery in Marion , Ill. I was not able to locate their graves. (These 2 deaths are on record in the Williamson County Clerks Office, Marion , Ill. )  This month, January, 1914, must have been a terrible memory for Ignazio and Dominica for the rest of their lives.  However, life continues, and two years later, another of their sons Simon (Moonie) Shambro was born and baptized on March 21, 1915 at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Herrin , Illinois .

Josephine Shambro and her husband Joe Malazzo , are also in Marion or Herin , Illinois .  On Oct.20, 1911 they have a son Oscar. Oscars' baptismal name was "Pasqualle Malazzo" (Baptized April 7, 1912) and, is on record at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Herrin , IL . Before the end of 1912, Josephine and her family had moved to the St. Louis area, maybe Venice . On January 10, 1913 , Joe Malazzo died in St. Louis .  His body was taken back to San Carlo Cemetery , the Catholic cemetery for the area.  It is located in Herin , Ill. (This information is from  the Marion Evening Post dated Monday January 13, 1913).  The San Carlo cemetery has a recorded burial of Angelo Malazzo and his wife, but I was not able to locate Joe Malazzos' grave.  Josephine then marries Joe Ponce.  Possibly in 1913.  Soon after, Matia is born to Joe and Josephine in 1914.  I have not been able to locate the marriage record for Joe and Josephine.

At any rate, by the end of 1915, Josephine and Joe Ponce were back in Convent. Joe and Josephine's return to Convent could have been brought on by the hard times in Southern Illinois , or the death of her first husband, or maybe they had news of Josephine's father, Zackeri, being gravely ill.

On December 3, 1915, Zackeri Shambro, The patriarch of our family, dies and is buried in an unmarked grave behind St. Michael the Archangel Church in Convent, Louisiana. This record, as well as many other records, is on file at the Catholic Archdiocese in Baton Rouge , Louisiana .  The writing is very unclear, but I believe that this was the date of his death.  The record shows:  "Frank Zacheri Campora 66y/old Dec.1915 Page 36 St. Michael's Death records".

One month after Zachari's death, on January 2, 1916 , Joe and Josephine were sponsors for the baptism of Tony Mangi.  Tony is the son of Josephine's sister Carmella and Dominic Mangi. 

And, one month after that, on Febuary 12, 1916, Joe and Josephine were sponsors for the marriage of her brother Tony Shambro and Galecia [Alice] Saita [Siatta ].  Galecia[Alice] was born March 20,1900 aboard ship.  Her place of birth was listed as Italy because the ship was closer to Italy than to the United States when she was born.

By the end of 1918, I believe that most of the Italian families were in Venice , Illinois . First known records indicate that Butch family arrived by 1911, Ferro by1912, Carusso by 1916, and Shambro By 1918.

The only member of the original Shambro family to enter the military was the second Salvatore Shambro born in 1896.  Sam was in the Army probably in the beginning of 1918.  Since I have not been able to locate any records of his military carrier, Sam could have been drafted from Convent, Louisiana rather than Venice , Illinois ; as most of the family may still be in Convent at this time.  He was in service only a short time when the war ended and he returned home.  Weather his return home was Convent or Venice , it is quite possible that Sam was away during the terrible events at the end of 1918 in Venice .

This year, 1918, was a tragic year, and especially tragic for the Shambro family.  This year, as World War I is coming to an end, was the year of a great flu epidemic.  The Italians of Venice lost at least 4 loved ones to the "Spanish Influenza" within a three week period.  On October 24, Josephine (Shambro) Ponce , died at age 24 leaving 3 children Oscar, Matia, and a young son Peter behind.  On November 3, one week after Josephine's' death, her son Peter dies.  Peter was was1 year and 7 months old.  Tony Shambro, 1 year 7 month old son of Ignazio and Dominica , died on October 24 the same day as Josephine, and John Butch died on November 12, 6 month old son of Thomas and Mary Ann Butch.  These deaths and burials are recorded at St. Marks Cemetery.  (See Burials & Josephine).  Tony Shambros death record is the first record of Ignazio and Dominica in Venice .

After the death of Josephine, Joe Ponce was left a widow with surviving children Oscar (not his son) and Matia.  On November 10, 1919 , Joe Ponce married Nicoletta Shambro, sister of Josephine.  They were married at St. Charles Borromeo Church , which was located at 29th, and Locust in St. Louis , Mo.   The church was established to handle the increasing number of Italian immigrants and is no longer in existence.  This record is at the Catholic Archives of St. Louis, Mo. 

On  September 9, 1925 , Salvatore [Sam ] Shambro marries Angela [Bucceri ] Butch.

Joe [Pep] Shambro marries Josephine Felanis.  I do not know the date.  On July 7, 1931 , they have a son Zackary.  Soon after Zackarys' birth, Joe and Josephine are separated.

Josephine and her son Zackery then move to the Chicago area.

After 1925, your family tree should show dates of births, deaths and marriages. Great strides should be taken by each family member to keep their respective part of the tree up to date.

In Venice , Illinois , the families lived for many years with other Italian families, raising their families and working together. It was a unique city where everyone was related or knew each other.  As the language barrier began to break down, the next generation of children began to make friends with the non-Italian children.  By 1950, the city was like a big family.

The early social live in Venice consisted of story telling by Joe Svezia, Bocci Ball, card playing, kick the can, and Sunday afternoon meals and visits.  The aroma of cooking on Sunday after church was fantastic.  You could walk down the street and tell who was cooking fried chicken or spaghetti or a roast.  Later, around 1935, dancing became popular and several of the family members were quite good.  Moonie Shambro was a good boxer and became a prizefighter at this same time. [See stories]

When one family needed help, other families would pitch in.  When Thomas and Mary Ann Butch's house burned down in the late 1940's, it was rebuilt in a few weeks with a lot of help from family members and friends.   

Our family was poor, but as children, we did not realize it.  When your shoes fell apart and it wasn't your turn for new ones, the shoes were repaired, and repaired, and repaired.

Socks were darned and other clothes were sewn and repaired. But, only a few times in my childhood did we feel that we didn't have what other children had.

In the fifties and sixties, (1950-1960), the third generation of Shambros' began marring and moving to other areas.  I know of NO Shambros' who married and stayed in Venice .  Also, this generation did not follow tradition and marry other Italian men and women.  I know of only one Shambro who married a girl of Italian descent. (Ed Johnisee)  Today, Shambros' are scattered throughout the United States , however most have settled in the Midwest . 

From the marriage of Zackari Shambro and Anna (Sulle or Zulle) Shambro, there are over 245 descendants, with surnames totaling more than 50.
