NIKOLAOS D. LOURANTOS 1899--1971
Nikolaos, was from Kallisperianika and the family nickname was "Tsiknomenos".
He married Maria Samios from Hora "KOTSIFOS". Nikolaos and Maria had a number of daughters and their last child was a son DIMITRIS "Mitsos" who was in Australia for a short time, then returned to Greece and became a schoolteacher. Maria Samios was a sister of the well known Yiannis Kotsifos who owned the "bus" service many years ago and also had a taxi, which was used when King Paul visited Kythera.

467:It's my paternal Grandfather who's origin is from Kalisperianika. His nick name was "Maragos" - that's Carpender because of his profession. The family nickname was "Tsiknomenos". He's buried with his wife Maria of the Samios family of Hora nicknamed "Kotsifos". I presented a paper at the 8th PanIonian Conference about family archives in which he had an unfinished war diary from the 1920-22 Greco-Turkish War.
