IN SEARCH OF GALLO FAMILY FROM FALERNA, CALABERIA, ITALY

Postby Gladius1 » 28 Apr 2010, 05:41

I am in search of relatives with the surname " GALLO " from Falerna, Calaberia, Italy. My grandfather, Tommaso Folino Gallo immigerated to America in 1895 on the ship Alesia from Falerna with my grandmother
Angelina Cunzolo and their children. They settled in Windber, Pa with other family members from Falerna. The men worked as coal miners. We are told that one family member died in a mine accident in the early 1900s.
My grandfather moved his family to south Jersey in 1908. Other family members remained in the Windber area. Other family member names may include Gennaro, Giacinto and Antonia Gallo. Other related surnames may include Perri and Cunzolo

Yes, you're correct Carmine. My grandfather arrived in 1895 and my grandmotther Angelina arrived in 1900 with their son Francesco.
I have all the Census information. Actually, I corrected the information on the 1910 Census which listed the Gallo famiily as "Gall" in Conemaugh, Pa. where my grandfather was working in the coal mines. They may have used this name intentionally. Some of the childrens names were also changed. During the 1910 Census my grandfather had already moved to Atlantic County, NJ to look for a family homestead and was living with family friends and counted in the 1910 Atlantic County,NJ Census.
Thanks for providing the info.
Ted
