Seeking more information on my great grandfather, ANSSTASSIOS (Tom) SKOULIS (b. 1886 – 1960). Specifically seeking to learn more about his parents and life of Asia Minor before immigrating to the United States. Anstassios was born in around Triglia / Trilye, Turkey which is a town of Bursa Province, Mudanya, Turkey on the Gulf of Mudania (ref. Ellis Island records). He died in Cleveland, Ohio.
I do know that Ansstassios married my great grandmother Endoxia (maiden name Afaganis) (b. 1886) before departing for the United States. Other spellings of her first name include Eisophia and Eisodia. They arrived together at Ellis Island on 7, June, 1920, both at the age of 34. Their ship, Pannonia left from Prussa, Turkey from the port Patras. Their children include Fifi (b. 1921 in Cleveland, Ohio), Angelo (b. 1923) in Cleveland, and Alexander (my grandfather b. 24 May, 1928 – d. 20 Oct. 2001).
Any more information on the Ansstassios's family, ancestry, birth, or death would be greatly appreciated.
