Posted: 5 Dec 2011 3:55AM GMT
Classification: Death
Surnames: Contomiholias, Grannaros
From the Mobile, Alabama Newspaper

Monday, Dec. 4, 1911:


• "Three hundred dollars reward is offered for the capture of the murderer, or murderers of Gerasimos Contomiholias, who was shot to death in his restaurant on Commerce street, near Lipscomb, Saturday night about 10 o'clock.

"Nearly every Greek who is a resident of Mobile called at the parlors of the Roche Undertaking Company Sunday to view the remains of the murdered man, and at a mass meeting held there, a fund of $300 was raised to be awarded for the arrest or information leading to the arrest of Contomiholias' slayer. A. Grannaros, who can be found at 200 St. Francis street, was named as the custodian of the fund."

Not my line, just sharing.
