Prudent B. Cambre, a native of Reserve, LA in St. John Parish, has been researching the
Cambre family for many years. Michel Cambre and Mathias Cambre, natives of Germany,
settled in St John Parish in the mid-1750s. Cambre family members can be found today in
many parishes throughout Louisiana and in several other states.
Prudent is planning on publishing a book on the Cambre family early next year and realizes
that there is much information he doesn't have because of the fact that the family has
spread far and wide. He is inviting anyone who has family information to provide it so
that he can include it in the book.
If you have information that you would like to submit, you can e-mail it to me at
Jperilloux(a)home.com and I'll forward it to Prudent, or you can snail mail it to:
2509 Broadmoor Drive
Bryan, TX 77802
Since Prudent is 90 years old and he plans on starting publication early next year, time
is of the essence.
