Can anyone specify the location?

Clearly there were many more windmills in existence 70 years ago on Kythera, than are currently extant there?

Triunduphilo Koroneos & Yeorgia Koroneos (nee, Mentis).

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.

Theodore Haralambos Catsoulis

My grandfather, Theodore, was born in Potamos in 1878. He was a farmer, a guard at the Palace in Athens, and later, in Australia, a cafe owner, then again a farmer. Most of all, he was a wonderful husband and father, and to me, the most perfect grandfather. He died in 1953, leaving a huge gap in our family. I loved his gentleness, kindness, patience and his unlimited love for his family. He came to Australia on the Grosser Kurfurst, around 1904/5. He married my grandmother, Chrisanthe Coronoes on ...
