Dimitry's of LA

Surnames: Canty
In my research of my husbands family, the Canty's, I have come upon some old letters from the late 1800's written by people in the Dimitry family to their grandparents by the last name of Jacobs. I am not sure of the connection to my family, or why we have these letters, but I know this could be of incredible interest to someone. The letters are written by Lizzie Ruth Dimitry and her daughter by the same name and mention a son named Dracos and daughter named Celeste.
If anyone can make a connection to this, just let me know and I would be glad to share.

Fernande Jacob married my husband's grandfather, Dr. Theodore John Dimitry. Celeste was his aunt. Lizzie and Celeste were family names/nicknames through several generations.

Dear Wendy: Your husband's family is descended from Andreas and Marianne Celeste (nee Dragon) Dimitry of New Orleans. Andreas Dimitry was from the Greek island of Hydra and he arrived in New Olreans in 1775. Marianne's father Michael Dragon was also a Greek but born in Athens in 1739.

If you look up the family tree of Alexander Dimitry you will find the connections you need.

If you need some printed references on all this let me know.

Good luck in your research,
Steve Frangos

I am very interested in the letters you have. These are my direct ancestors and I have a lot of information on the Dimitry line. I believe Lizzy Ruth Dimitry is my great-great-great grandmother. The Dracos you are referring to would be her daughter Elizabeth Dimitry Ruth's husband (who was also a Dimitry - they were distant cousins). I would love to share information. I do not have any information on the Jacobs family ... this would be very interesting to me.

After looking through my notes, Celeste was my great-grandmother. Dracos was Celeste's brother. Celeste's mother, Elizabeth "Lizzie" (Dimitry) Ruth, was my great-great grandmother. Please contact me at lncphillips@hotmail.com if you still check these boards.
