Tambor/Yornbor/Golling- Immigrated to Wisconsin 1850's

Tambor/Yornbor/Golling- Immigrated to Wisconsin 1850's

Classification: Query
I'm looking for the correct spelling of my great grandmother's maiden name.

1870's Federal Census spells it YORNBOR.

Mother: Nulterger Yornbor
Father: Nicolas Yornbor

Because they were from Germany/Austria, the names maybe mis spelled. I was wondering if anyone knew of this name or are related to them. I had grown up with it being Tambour???


Name: Victoria "YORNBOR" Golling

Birth Date: Dec 1852
Birthplace: Austria
Home in 1900: Janesville Ward 5, Rock, Wisconsin
[Rock]
Race: White
Gender: Female
Immigration Year: 1854
Relation to Head of House: Wife
Marital Status: Married
Spouse's Name: Alois Golling
Marriage Year: 1872
Years Married: 28
Father's Birthplace: Austria
Mother's Birthplace: Austria

In 1870 she lived with her parents in Beaver Dam Ward 1, Dodge, Wisconsin

When she got married the name that came up was "Tambor".

You need to look at other records: marriage record (actual record, not index), birth and marriage records of children, death records, obituaries, probate records, etc. before you can figure out what this obviously badly mangled name is.

One example (Jamber), but not definitive:

Hint: A J in German is pronounced like an English Y.

Thank you. I have been trying to look at records, but I keep getting that I have to sign up for a ancestry.uk./aus/ger. Weird. I thought in was Worldwide?

Thank you again.

That record wasn't from Ancestry; it was from FamilySearch.

Hello, I am not related. The name seems to be Yambor, and come from Moravia, Czechoslovakia.
The name you have for Victoria's mother is most likely not correct. I think Nulterger may have been a housekeeper that somehow was listed under their last name. I found the ship passenger list with Nicolas and his 7 daughters, including Victoria, and Barbara, whom I found some info on. The wife/mother was not with them, so she may have died there. Then there is a family tree on ancestry.com who has this family, including your Victoria, her husband, and their 2 children listed. Here is the info I found, and the link to the family tree.
Good Luck, Ruth Pokorny
-----------
The index states that they were Danish (Denmark), but looking at the actual ship list, I see that there were some persons from Denmark just above the Yambor family, and when it came to the Yambor family, the list stated they were from Austria, which the transcriber must have overlooked.

The Yambor family departed Liverpool, and landed at New York Nov. 28, 1853 on the ship Silas Greenman.

WOW! How generous of you to send this to me! I will have a look but what I have listed regards to dates seem to be correct. But what you send makes perfect sense. I found my great, grandmother ALMA. :)

From your note, should I assume there are from Moravia, Czechoslovakia because Barbara lists it herself when she marries? Would anyone of them be from Zar, Austria? Or is that just a mistake? Very confusing. :P lol

Many, Many thanks. I'm very new at this, so this is a HUGE help! Claire M

Czechoslovakia didn't exist as a country until after World War I. During the 19th century, Moravia was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Moravia always had a substantial minority of ethnic Germans, until they were forcibly expelled after World War II. Sigmund Freud was from Moravia. You can learn more about the history of the region on Wikipedia.

My grandmama had said she was German living near today's Alsace-Lorraine. She woould be German born in Austrian but would be modern day Czechoslovakian if she was alive today.
I did find she was born in Bohemia which is very close to Moravia.

Thanks for all the info.

In case this helps - I've indexed just two Jambor entries from local German newspapers: adverts in 1897 to locate a missing Charles Jambor from Texas; and death notices in 1900 for a Frank Anderle (80 yrs), who was survived by someone named Jambor.

"Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950) / an ongoing, independent project created, compiled and edited by Gary R. Rebholz.
