Vintage postcard from USA-- back

Postcard from 6 March, 1920 to Mr. Theo Khlentzos of Carthage, Missouri, USA. The card is from his koumbaro D. Gouletis, and says there is a lot of snow and that he has greetings from Mr. Batsanakis and his wife.

Theo Khlentzos was born in 1877 in Kythera, and died in 1923 in Missouri, where he worked as a candymaker. He is one of three sons of Michael Khlentzos and Zafiroula Vasenios. Theo and his two brothers all emigrated to the United States.

James Mitchell Khlentzos was also a candymaker, and settled in Wichita, Kansas.

Andrew Khlentzos (another candymaker) and his family lived in Carthage, Missouri for a few years before emigrating to Australia, where their descendants still live today.

These three brothers are my third cousins twice removed.

This postcard was located on E-Bay.
