"Autos Injure Woman, Man"
Two persons were injured when struck by cars last night in Hamilton Township. Mrs. Bessie Costianes, 60, of 8 Spring Street, Princeton, was admitted to St. Francis Hospital with a cut eye and possible head injuries. Her condition today was reported as satisfactory. John S. Harris, 62, of 1509 Cornell Avenue, suffered multiple body bruises but declined hospital treatment.. Police said Mrs. Costianes was struck by a car driven by Willis Bray, 35, of 1133 Nottingham Way, at Greenwood and Johnston Avenues. Bray was charged with careless driving. Harris was hit as he stepped out of the passenger side of his car parked on Cedar Lane, near Pitman Avenue, police reported. The victim was knocked to the road, but police said the car did not stop. Patrolman John Skwarek is continuing the investigation.

70 "My father was from Kosma and Vrondama, and the name in Greece is REMPELOS." (George N. Revelos)

"My father married my mother in Agios Ioannis. I believe it was my uncle Vasilis Aridas had just passed away so there was a simple ceremony in Agios Ioannis and my father and mother proceeded by horse or mule to Vrontama [my father's village] where they celebrated the wedding for a week. My mother told me years ago that she was enamored of Michalis Rempelos` daughter Alkioni and wanted to bring her with her to the US and raise her. She was a cute little girl that looked like Shirley Temple the US child actress. I met her when I was in Greece years later".....George N Revelos

"My sister Lula (Zaharoula) was the first of the children in our family to visit Agios Ioannis in the 1950's and meet my grandparents. My mother also went over in 1949 to visit her parents for the first time since her marriage in 1929. It may be mistaken as to the death in the family at my mother's wedding. It could have been Panagiotis and to Vasiiis after seeing the Dimotologion. It lists his residence as Agios Ioannis. If that is true, then he returned to Greece with grandfather when they left Golfo in Springfield. I had always assumed that he stayed on with Golfo, which may account why I can't find a death certificate for him in Ohio." George N. Revelos, email to Carol Petranek, October 8, 2009.

74 "On 30 March 1921, Michael Aridas, 54, with children Gkolfo, 20, and Panagiotis, 11, arrived in the United States aboard the “Belvedere” with a combined total of 280 dollars. Their closest relative in Greece was Michalis’ wife, Eleni, in Agios Ioannis. They were all arriving in America for the first time, and in the US they were going to stay with Michalis’ brother-in-law Philip Vlachos at 31S Limestone Street in Springfield, Ohio. Michalis was described as a literate workman, 5 feet 8 inches tall, of dark complexion, grey hair and brown eyes. Gkolfo was described as an illiterate housmaid, 5 feet 4 inches tall, of fair complexion, with brown hair and eyes. Panagiotis was described as a literate pupil, 4 feet 9 inches tall, of dark complexion, brown hair and eyes.
www.ancestry.com; New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957; Aridas, Michael, Golfo, Panagiotis. National Archives Microfilm serial: T715, Roll 2943; Line 2, Page #114.


George N Revelos writes: “My grandfather returned to Greece without his children. Gkolfo married and lived in Columbus, Ohio. I was told that Panagioti went to live with Gkolfo in Columbus and died of the flu. I was never able to find his death certificate to prove to the lawyer in Greece that he was deceased. My mother went to see Gkolfo in 1929 when she came to this country. Gkolfo was bedridden and died in childbirth as did the baby soon after my mother saw her. I don`t know Gkolfo`s married name. My grandfather brought the children to Louie and Katina Vlachos. Philip must have been another brother to Louie that I never knew. When I was growing up my uncle Louie and theia-Katina lived at 56 West Perrin Avenue in Springfield.” Source: George N. Revelos.

"Grandfather brought Golfo and his son Panagiotis, his son from his second wife to Springfield to live with Katina in 1921. Golfo married a Pappas from Columbus and died there in childbirth in 1929. The baby died also. My mother, Frosine visited her in Columbus that year. I think Panagiotis lived with her and died from the Flu prior to my Mother coming to America. " Source: George N. Revelos.

From George N. Revelos, as he wrote in website, Family Trees of Southern Parnon (http://karitsa.tribalpages.com): "On 30 March 1921, Michael Aridas, 54, with children Golfo, 20, and Panagiotis, 11, arrived in the U nited States aboard the "Belvedere" with a combined total of 280 dollars.

From George N. Revelos, as he wrote in website, Family Trees of Southern Parnon (http://karitsa.tribalpages.com): "My grandfather Michael Aridas from Agios Ioannis Sparta had three children from his first wife, C hristos, Katina and Golfo. His first wife died and he then married my g randmother Eleni to raise his children. He subsequently had seven or eight children with my grandmother. My mother is the last surviving of all his children. My youngest brother Charlie was struck by a hit and run driver when he was two years old when we visited Thea Eleni Vlahos in Springfield in 1940. My father died the next year. I was 11. My mother raised all of us without remarrying. She was afraid that a stepfather might not treat his stepchildren properly. I've never forgotten that. That 's why I'm her caregiver......"

"Grandfather brought Golfo and his son Panagiotis, his son from his second wife to Springfield to live with Katina in 1921. Golfo married a Pappas from Columbus and died there in childbirth in 1929.

77 1. Andrew had two wives. He had six sons by his first wife. Gregory and Demetrios are on the family group records.
One went to Egypt. Another was working in a winery as a young man when a friend dared him to drink all the wine he could. The wine was being fermented and it killed him.
The other 3 sons' names and whereabouts are unknown. (Information from Carol's father, Andrew John Kostakos).

2. Andrew's second marriage to Poletimi is documented in these records.

Birth place from Areti Kostakos Lambrinos discussion with Carol Petranek, Aug. 2, 2003. Areti said that he came from "over the big mountains", looking for work. There are several "Pyrgos" - the closest to Sparta were Pyrgos, Kalamon (Messinia) and Pyrgos, Ileias.
However, during our visit to Greece in 1996, cousin Panos Kostakos said "all the Kostakos' are from Anavriti."

Firemen were called out three times last night, once to fight a blaze in a dwelling, once to extinguish a burning automobile and once by a false alarm. The first call was to 616 Liberty Street, the home of M. Aridas, where a fire of unknown origin broke out in the kitchen about 9:22 o'clock.

There are many different birth dates as noted below.

Death: NYC Death Index: Aridas Michael Age 51 y, Jan 1 1948, Certificate #53, Bronx, Soundex-A632 [website: www.italiangen.org]

1920 Federal Census: Brooklyn, Kings, NY, Brooklyn Assembly District 3, District 179: Michael Arians (Aridas), age 45, single, immigrated 1899, helper in restaurant. This puts his birth year at 1854, not 1896. [Note: not correct, according to NYC Death Record which puts birth year as 1897, however, he died on Jan. 1 so birth year was 1896]
