Lagalo surname, settled in Michigan

Postby ctsbutterfly » 24 Jun 2005, 22:51

I am looking for info on my maternal great grandparents. Peter (or Paul) Lagalo and Nancy Galentoe ( this may be the wrong spelling) I am not sure where in Italy they came from. But I would very much like to know. They had many children, though I don't know all the names here are a few. Rose, Frank ( butchy), samuel. my great grandfather also had brothers that moved here. though I am not sure of their names. I am clueless about how to start this. I searched ellis island and came up with someone who may have been a brother to my ggp. Felix Lagalo...and his wife Elizabeth Lagalo who I understand he married in england. any help is appreciated.

There is a Pietro La Gala born approx. in 1881 from Casamarciano (province of Naples) who arrived in 1905 (steamship Città di Reggio) and settled in Saginaw, Michigan.
Nancy's surname is probably Galante, but I dont'know which italian name could become Nancy (possibly Nunzia).
Hope it helps

Any known birthdates? Dates of death?
Please provide as much info as possible.......we may be able to locate
a census thereby giving us a rough estimate of immigration and naturalization.....
