 Note: I distinctly remember him (Theodore) because he worked for Kavouras at his restaurant/bar on Woodlawn and Crawford.  He always talked to me in Greek, but he would converse with my mother and father in Turkish.  My mother said that he did not speak Greek well.  Pete Kavouras sold the restaurant in 1946 when George and I were juniors in high school.  ND

 Note: A couple of years later, he worked as a waiter at the Reckman & Dickerson Saloon on Central Ave near the Family theatre and Big-4 rail tracks.  I was with my dad one time when he needed to give Theo a message. We went first to the Saloon to find he was off duty, then to his apartment above the saloon.  I remember it was a walk-up apartment and he was a hefty man. The thing I remember most was his disposition – he always had a smile on his face, something I rarely saw among his peers. GC

 Birth Record of Penelope Vassiliadou   My philatelic buddy who helped initiate the Sephardic Jewish site wanted to use my mom's birth certificate as an example.  His grandfather's family and  my maternal grandmother's family came from Gallipoli (of WWI fame). Both families were forced to leave Gallipoli around 1908,  The Germany had become allied with the Ottoman Empire and advised the Turks to get rid of all Greeks and Jews in the Thrace area.  (That is the reason so many Greeks from Saranta Eccleseas ended up in Dayton, OH.) My friend's family went to South America and the US. My grandmother's family went to Brusa (Bursa) and eventually New York. ND

Source Message from Jim Demetrion Tom's and Susie's son:  
1. Anna from Canton's married surname is Manos.  
2. Her maiden name is Dimetriou -- note position of the i and the e and also that it ends in a u.  
3. Her (my) grandfather's surname is Demetriou; it was so recorded when they arrived in this country.  
4. You would think that her father's (my Uncle Bill) surname and his father's surname would be the same, right? Somewhere along the line, that 2nd letter got changed, but we don't know where or when or what the circumstances were. SIDELIGHT: I have a report card of my mother's from an elementary school that no longer exists where the name on the card is "Susie Etna" and it's signed by my grandfather. For a while I wondered if this was a card of one of my mom's schoolmates that she ended up with somehow. But my hunch is mom said Susannah when asked about her name and it got put down as Susie Etna.
