My grandmothers maiden name was Gailliard. She died in 1986 when I was only 8 so I didnt know her very well. I do know she was originally from South Carolina where she attended college before moving to mason county ky and was married to my grandfather Stanley Fritz. I wouldnt have replied but the fact that your ancestor was thought to be from South Carolina, I felt compelled to reply because Im sure there is some connection there. The Gailliard name is not common as most hail from the South Carolina area. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com
as we may be long lost relatives.
