Surnames: Foytik, Gallagly,
I think I'm related to this Foytek Family! My father is Hugh Gallagly from Chicago and is the son of Marie Foytek-Gallagly. My grandma lived in the apartment above us in Chicago, so I was very close with her. My Grandma was a twin but her brother died when he was three. Sadly, I can recall the story that he died in her mothers arms and she remember this. Growing up she told me so many stories, unfortunately I remember the stories but not the details. I remember her telling me her mom and dad Frank and Rosalie, never fought and their marriage was arranged by their parents. My grandma Marie had many brothers and sisters, Jim, John, Joe, Emo, Frank, Tony, Frances, Emily are the names I can remember. Some were at my wedding in 1993. I visited Phillips Wisconsin when I was very young probably the late 70's. I'm not sure which brother we stayed with but they had a huge farm. I visited a few of my grandma's brothers. Uncle Joe was the first house on the road before the uncle I stayed with. I don't know if he had older married children but he had little chicks in his yard. The funny Uncle was Emo, (I think) he had a wig on when we came to the door. He gave us a ride on his tractor, he had a big farm but I don't remember any kids. The uncle we stayed with had kids, one daughter was a little older than me and they had a lot of cows to milk. My dad has home movies when we visited. I wish I had more of a connection with my Foytek Family, my dad Hugh seems to have kept in touch from time to time, as an adult, I appreciate Family more. Oh by the way my name is Bridie Gallagly-Gleeson, Hugh's oldest daughter of seven children. I live is South Elgin, married with my own 3 children. If anyone recognizes this info, I'm looking to piece my family tree together, I would love if you would say hello.
