Lydia (Strubbe) Gardner 17 Feb 1997
I am looking for any information on any STRUBBE that settled in Nebraska. Most settled in Indiana after coming from Germany...except for Henry STRUBBE Sr., who left Indiana around 1874 and headed for Nebraska. Henry STRUBBE was married to Sarah COLTMEYER (or KAULTMEYER) and they had Laney, Louis, Elizabeth, Frank, Amelia, and Ida. Louis STRUBBE was the youngest, born in the fall of 1872 in Indiana, but his obituary was seen years ago by a relative in a Nebraska paper. Last year, a letter from a STRUBBE from California arrived and was inquiring about family history. Her mother was adopted by a Louis and Ollie STRUBBE along with other children (Frances, Jack O., and Edna Marie)....she went on to state that her mother married her adopted cousin Floyd William STRUBBE, son of Harold and Anna STRUBBE. Interesting....so I am trying to find anything on any STRUBBE in Nebraska. Would appreciate any info ! Lydia (Strubbe) Gardner PO Box 692

Looking for information on the Mangiameli family. Cirino MANGIAMELI and his wife Guiseppa (FANCUILLO) Mangiameli arrived in the U.S. in the latter 1800's through Ellis Island. We do not know the date that they arrived but know that they were born in Carlentini Sicily and it is believed that there are still relatives that are living there. We believe that Cirino's parents name's were Sebastian and Carmella and to the best of our knowledge they remained in Sicily, probably in Carlentini. Cirino and Guiseppa had the following children; Sebastian Jack, Samuel and Helen. The last name was changed to MANGIMELLI sometime after the four children were born in the beginning of the 1900s. Cirino,he may have been called Charles, his brother Joseph and sister's Francis and Mary, we believe all came over to the U.S. at the same time. Cirino worked as a railroad carpenter and retired the same. Guiseppa (FANCUILLO) Mangimelli was a housewife at that time. We believe that they both died in Omaha, but are not sure of the date. The four children: Jack, Samual, Sebastian and Helen all born in Omaha. Helen's married name is Caniglia. Jack and Sebastian have since passed away. Cirino and Guiseppa are my wife's father's grandparents and any information about them would be greatly appreciated.
