My grandfather, Antonio Galasso
(?-1982), was born in Cisternino, Brindisi Province, Italy. He immigrated to the
U.S. early in the 1900s (maybe 1911 or 1912), where he apparently spent some time in
Syracuse, New York. I also think he had some family there - I have a photograph of him as a young man, with a group of six other men
and a little girl; I think it was taken in Syracuse. Tony then moved to Oklahoma, where he earned his U.S. citizenship by fighting in
World War I. He married Ida Frances Reed on 2/1/25 and had one son, William Allan Galasso (6/25/1925), who was killed in the Korean War. I am the only child of William Galasso and Flora Jean Burgin.
Any information on this aspect of the Galasso tree would be very much appreciated!
