Kirani Chlentzos Katsouli was the daughter of Efrocene Venardos (1830-1935) and Haralambos Panayiotis Chlentzos, and the sister of my grandmother Marigo Chlentzos Alfieris 1882-1968.

Kirani married Giorgos Katsoulis and hey had five children:

1. Grigoria who married Nick Chlentzos, and had 3 children pictured.

2. RIgoula, who married someone with the name of Papalianos. They had 3 children: Marina, Anna, and Koula.

3. Pascalia who married S. Eftimios. They had 3 children: Nick, Andrew, and Maria.

4. Arete, who married Dimitris Sofios. They had 3 children; Manoli (the photographer), Zoe, and George.

5. Dimitris Katsoulis (1897-1955) who immigrated to the USA and changed his name to Jim Kastele. He married an American woman, Gertrude Ruth Holladay and they had no children.

When Areti died of the influenza epidemic in 1918, her mother, Kirani, helped raise her children.
Manolis Sophios is renowned for his amazing photographic archives.

I have very little info on RIgoula, Grigoria and Pascalia.
If you have any information on them or their descendants, please contact Vikki Vrettos Fraioli.
