Dimitri Aroney aged 20 in 1910

Dimitri Aroney (Theodoropoulos), son of Kosmas and Frosini (nee Papadopoulos), was born in the village of Aroniathika on the island of Kythera, Greece in 1890 and died in N.S.W, Australia in 1991, aged 100 years.

Dimitri migrated to Australia in 1906 at the age of 16, and from 1908 ran a restaurant with his brothers Peter (Panayiotis) and Jack (Ioannis) in Murwillumbah, N.S.W.

Dimitri went back to Greece in 1915 to serve in the Greek army during the Asia Minor War and returned to Australia in 1923 with his new wife Stamatia (also from Aroniathika, Kythera). They initially settled in Bundarra, N.S.W, where they ran a café and picture show.

Haniotis in Sevastopol (Crimea, Russia)

In about the year 1880 a brother of my great-great-grandmother named Minas Aglacitis migrated from Friligianika to the city of Sevastopol in the Crimea, Russia. His nephew, Panayioti Haniotis, was sent to make his fortune with his uncle. I think this picture depicts Panayoti, his wife Despina, and uncle Minas.

Postscript by Sophia Zantiotis, cousin of the submitter:
My grandmother, Sophia, remembers them coming to visit her grandmother Sophia (Panayiotis' mother). She remembers being told they had a good business and were very wealthy. Our great-great-grandmother, Sophia, returned from visiting them in Russia filled with stories of how wonderful their house and kitichen were and that they had running water.
After the Russian Revolution of 1917 & Panayiotis death they lost everything. My grandmother Sophia tells me Despina came to Kythera and lived off her jewels.
