Maria Feros. Headstone. Old Dubbo Cemetery.

On Saturday 12th November, 2005, I drove to Dubbo, in central western New South Wales - to search for the gravesite of my baby sister Ollie. I had never been to the gravesite before - in the 53 years of my life.

I thought I was looking for a marked grave, and so I traipsed around the Old Dubbo Cemetery for two hours looking for it.

The story of how I found it, and the gravesites' exact location is told elsewhere.

In the meantime I encountered ...

Ollie Constandinou (Tzortzo)Poulos. Gravesite location marker - the child's crib gravesite looking from the Western corner.

Looking East from the corner of Barden Avenue, and Myall Street.

The gravsite in the far western corner is a beautifully crafted 3-part marble topped gravesite [unmarked], with the horizontal part of the headstone, either removed - or not in place yet [hence the jutting steel reinforcing bars.]

The white patch in the distance (one grave site in from the fence) - is the childs' crib gravesite, which is the perfect location marker for finding Ollie Poulos's gravesite.

Rosa Cassamaty (Hearn/Cavallini*) - Grave site

Rosa Cassamaty (Hearn/Cavallini) - Grave site.

[I am not totally convinced that this is Rosa's gravestone.
The Name at the top reads:
Yannis Angelou Kavallinis
The rest is difficult to decipher - but the date of death at the bottom is clearly 25th December 1905.
The birth date 12th October 1824(?) - would indicate that at least one of the persons interned in the grave is Rosa's second husband - John Cavallini.
Is she interned with him?

Theodore Varvaressos Moree NSW Australia 1909-1956

Theodore Varvaressos Moree NSW Australia

The gravestone, located in the cemetery at Moree, in NSW, Australia, gives the life history of Theodore Varvaressos, clearly and distinctly.

Perhaps his descendants can provide us with a more complete life history?

The photograph was taken by Peter McCarthy - known in Greek circles as Panayoti Markarthis.

His "purachoukli" is "skouladris", and his place of origin is Makarthiathika.
