Surnames: Galeozzie, Galeazzi, Galouizzi
Having trouble locating Gr Gr Grandfather Luigi Galouizzi (1871 Census Plymouth and earliest spelling!) or Lewis Galleozzie (Death Cert) who died in 1905 at 25 Mill St, Pontypridd. A plaster figure mould maker, family letters tell about his mould 'shop' ( backyard of house?) in Pontypridd and that he decorated various Pubs in the Town. I understand that Mill st has now been knocked down and replaced by a carpark. Anyone familiar with this street or know any figure makers (trade). Children of Lewis and wife Johanna were 13 (most born in Plymouth & Merthyr) with the last 4 probably brought up in Pontypridd - Mary Catherine, Joseph, Patrick, Maggie & Johanna. Stories are one of the dtrs married into the 'Grinelli' family. Family surname has changed throughout the years Galleozzi, Gallozze, Galeazzi, Galouzzi. If it starts with a G and has two Z it is problably a descendent of Luigi (lewis). Both Lewis and Johanna are buried in Merthyr Tydfil (1904 &1906 died). Any info appreciated.
