I will be hosting a Gilliard-Gaillard-Gillyard-Gilyard family reunion in Ft. Lauderdale, FL Aug 1-3, 2003. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I am related to the late Eddie Gaillard out of South Carolina. He had a lot of brothers and sisters that we don't know. I think some of them may be named Aaron, Joe, Johnny etc. According to the records that name has been changed several times. My parents have searched the east side of the US. We are looking for the above family members. My grandmother Janie moved to Maryland. I believe everyone originally came from Sumpter SC.
We want to gather and have a great time. Our family members are black. Our ancestors were once workers of Mr. Gaillard out of France. We have been planning this reunion for a while and can't contact everyone. If anyone has any information it would be helpful. Eddie Gaillard - was born around 1886 and had many children. Eddie Jr, Ella, Abertus, Issac, Sarah, Laura, Lizzie, George, Jafare, Maimie and Levan. I believe my grandfather was half white and black, but looking at my family members (I can't see it at all).
