You seem to know about Russian occupation on Patmos. My Roussos family lived in Issari, Greece. When my father died, I found among his possessions a Russian Hero pin. To date, I have no idea where or how he received it. His gr.gr.grandfather and grandfather I am sure were in the military. We also have a Vallas who married into the Roussos family in Issari. Her name was Maria Vallas who married Demetrios John Roussos. Her father's name was Illias according to her Issari death certificate. Would appreciate knowing more about the Russian connection to those that lived in Greece about the late 1700s.
