Back Row, left to right.

Nick Belos Coroneos, Panayotitsa (Pat) Coroneos (nee, Kritheri), Angeliki Kitouris (nee, Coroneos), Grigoritsa Sklavos (nee, Kritheri), Georgia Coroneos (nee, Mentis); my mother's mother.

[Nick and Angeliki were older brother and sister to my mother's father - Triunduphilo Koroneos.]

Front row:

Constandinos Kritheri Stabouzos, father of Pat & Grigoritsa, Olga Kritheri, (mother), unknown(?), Thespinoula Farou, my mother's grandfather, Theothosi Belos Koroneos, and my mother's grandmother, Stamatiko Koroneos (nee, Mentis).

My mother recalls that her grandfather was a tall upright man - even quite late in his life - "who always seemed to have everything he wanted...and everything he needed."

To see another photograph with Theothosios, and his son Triundiphilo - plouging - form a similar era go to:

Stamatiko was pro-pappou Theothosios' second wife. Three children were born to his first wife, John (USA), Zufiria, and Erophili.

As the Koroneos family emigrated to Australia and the USA, members of the same family were designated at least 4 different spellings for "Koroneos".

Crown - name of USA's John Crown. (great-uncle).
Corones - name of my maternal uncle Theo.
Coroneos - name of most of my maternal uncles and aunties.
Koroneos - name of my great uncle Jim (Maroubra).
