Cambra - Maynard
I'm researching my wife's side of the family also. Her father, Manuel Joseph Cambra and mother, Barbara Caroline Maynard were both from Rhode Island. Manny has six brothers and one sister. He was the first to be born in the United States. Manny's father, Joseph Cambra, and his mother, Marie Oliveira, were both born in Portugal. We're not sure that Cambra was actually the family name. Manny's father Joseph was raised in a foundling home in Portugal and it is believed that he took the name of the home or town it was located in. That's gonna be more research. Manny has only one younger brother still living and there's not a lot of family history available. The Maynard side goes back to England. I've got an extensive file on the Maynard side. Anyone having additional details on the Cambra side, please contact me.
