grandfather was adopted, searching for my Gallo relatives

Postby lyndsey5446 » 11 Jun 2011, 21:42

Hello. My grandfather has a pretty strange family history. His father came to the South from New York and met his mother here. She became pregnant and they planned a wedding. As the story goes, when his father's family arrived for the ceremony they threw him in the car and drove him straight back to New York. My grandfather says that they threatened his father's inheritance and didn't want him marrying a Southern woman. My great grandmother married a man by the last name of Benton and my grandfather took his last name. All that we know about his real family and last name is that the name is Gallo and they are from New York. If anyone finds this story familiar please reply as I am interested in finding out anything I can about my real last name and relatives. Thanks,
Lyndsey
