- Apr 14, 2013Hello Karin,
This is going to be a long shot but here goes... I found an ancestry indexed record in 1900 of a John Sabol (b. Jan. 1886 in Austria), all other children in the family were born staring in 1887 in Illinois. His parents listed as Andrew & Mary. The census record is very faded but shows them living at 1507 Union. On the previous pages at 1401 Union lived John & Mary Scorbie. I never find another Andrew and Mary, but I do find Andrew and Susan (Susanna) living again at 1507 Union.
I also found Andrew (widow) with children Andrew Jr. (b. 1897), Emma (b. 1904) & Mary (b. 1901). This puts he number of children from 7 in 1900 census to at least 9 by 1904. On the previous page is an Andrew & Suzie Sabol living at 1504 Union, arrival 1889.
The above record fits month/year of birth (Jan 1886), place of birth (Austria on some records) and immigration at age 1 on some records. They live in Streator and down the street from a Scorbie. Is it possible that he could be a Sabol/Sabel but changed his name for some reason. Or his family changed their name.
Andrew Scherba (death record)
Russion Orthodox Cemetery there lists:
Andrew Scherba, 1852-1925
Susanna Scherba, 1855-1939
Riverview Cemetery lists:
Andrew Sabol, unknown-1924 (see death index on ancestry)
Mary Sabol, unknown-1916
