Panagiota Drakos (nee, Sourry). Cobar, NSW. Death Certificate. 1946.

When I asked one of the attendants at the Cobar Heritage Museum, Cobar, about Greeks who may have lived in Cobar in the past; she provided me with two death certificates that she had on file. The first of these was for Panigota Drakos (nee, Sourry), 1946.
The second was that of her husband, John Drakos, 1956. [See the next entry].

Her children, Argero and Helen were aged 18 and 11 respectively in 1946.
If they are still alive in 2005, they would now be 77 and 70 respectively.
Does anyone of from the Drakos-Sourry family have any information about the family's subsequent history?
