My mothers parents. My mother is Envangalia (Angela) Coroneos, Gilgandra, of Pendle Hill, NSW.
Triunduphilos was for more than a decade Mayor of Karavas. He was the only one of his brothers and sisters to remain on Kythera.
Some second cousins in Australia always referred to Triunduphilo as Uncle Rosie. Triunduphilos was translated to Phillip in Australia, by the Coroneos clan. The direct translation Rose was considered unsuitable.
My bother Phillip Poulos, and two first cousins, Phillip Logus (son of Harry Logus, and Voula Coroneos) and Phillip Coroneos (eldest son of Emmanuel Coroneos and Katina Lazanas), carry my grandfathers name.
Two of my first cousins carry her name - Yeorgia (Georgia) Logus, (daughter of Harry Logus, and Voula Coroneos) Melbourne, and Georgia Coroneos, (daughter of Emmanuel Coroneos and Katina Lazanas), Sydney.
The photograph was taken in c. 1940's.
She died tragically in child-birth whilst giving birth to her 7th child.
This photograph is owned by my aunty, Helen Calligeros (nee, Coroneos), formerly of Dubbo, but now living in Canberra.
If you look carefully you can see that Yeorgia is pregnant. This photograph is taken a few months before both she and her child would die in childbirth.
This followed a trend in the family - my Great-grandfather Theothosios - also lost his first wife - Zufaria in childbirth. He was so devastated by her death - that he walked away from the house in which they lived - and never returned to it. The house is now iripio - in ruins.
Death during childbirth was common in Kythera during the 19th and early 20th century. It is a theme which demands far more attention on kythera-family.
