Fatseas Family

submitted by Peter McCarthy on 26.06.2003


I am trying to locate some members of the Fatseas family. Peter Fatseas came to Australia 1889 and returned to Greece 1901. He then came back to Australia late 1901 and brought with him his brother George and nephew Alexander. Peter and George's parents were Emmanual and Kalliope Fatseas. Alexander's father may have been Sprios Fatseas.

Peter Fatseas did not marry and died at Maitland NSW 6 September 1934 aged 73 years. George Fatseas returned to Smyrna 1904 and married Sophia Defteron and returned to Australia. The parents of Beatty Psaros above. George Fatseas died in Sydney  29 April 1942 in Sydney aged 87 years. Alexander Fatseas returned to Smyrna c 1911.

Another possible Fatseas relative is Theodore Fatsea born c1888.

Can anyone help with living descendents? Contact me at

I too am searching for distant members of the Fatseas family. My name is Stephen (Steve) Fatseas. I was born in New York City in 1945. My grandfather's name was Eugene (may be Americanized) Fatseas and my grandmother was Maria Fatseas (don't know her maiden name).
My father James (Dimitrios) emigrated to the US in the early 1900's. The Ellis Island archives lists him arriving on July 9, 1914 at the age of 8 along with his older brother Nicolaos, age 10. Both have their birthplace listed as Smyrna, Turkey. I can't find info on my grandfathers entry on the same ship, but it was common for heads of households to come over early and send for their families later.

The 1930 US Census lists my grandparents and the family as living in Wayne County, Michigan (probably Detroit).
In the 1930 Census:
Maria, age 50
Eugene, age 50
Nick (Nicolaos), age 27
Jimmey (James/Dimitrios), age 24
Hellen, age 14 (born in US)
Daisie (Anastasia), age 13 (born in US)

Both my Ya-Ya and Papou were born circa 1880, but I don't have the information as to where. I also don't know when they arrived in Smyrna, but I do know they lived there for a few years before coming to America. My Papou died circa 1930 and my Ya-Ya died in 1964. My father died in 1966.

My mother and father had 4 sons, Eugene of Topeka, KS, USA, James of Corona, CA, USA, Frank of Olympia, WA, USA, and myself.

Any further information would be appreciated. You may contact me at steve.fatseas@intermec.com

I'm trying to find related Fatseas's.

My papou's name is John Stefan Fatseas, born 1912 in New York. Not sure what city. He married Tina Fatseas. He attended NYU and then worked for the CIA. He had a brother named George Stefan Fatseas, and their father (my great grandfather)'s name was John Stefan Fatseas...see the pattern. John Stefan Fatseas and Tina Fatseas gave birth to my father (Paul Fatseas) and my uncle (Stefan John Fatseas). If any of these people ring a bell, lease contact me, any info would be nice.

Hi Nick, I believe your pappou is the same John Fatseas who competed in the 1935 Balkan Games in Greece with my uncle Pete Clentzos. My uncle was born in 1915 and was an Olympian in 1932, competing for Greece as a pole vaulter. In 1935 a team of five Greek-American athletes was sponsored by a New York businessman to go to Greece and participate in the Balkan Games. My uncle frequently mentioned that one of his teammates was another Kytherian, John Fatseas of New York.

I have a transcript of a video interview made in 1984 which states: "Then there was John Fatseas, of New York University, who placed fifth in the hurdles in the NCAA meet, a very fine hurdler and good athlete. He was well built and took care of himself."

I am certain this would be your pappou! I also have some photos of the Balkan team from Uncle Pete's archives, and I know your pappou is in the photos.
