I am looking for relatives of Asimakopoulos (not sure on the spelling)/ Anagnostopolis / Veliseriou, Velissaris or Velissariou from the Kastanochori/Kastanohori (old name: Krampovos) village of Megalopoli, Arcadia, Greece. Two sons left separately from Greece in 1914-1916 and reunited in the USA. Please contact me if you have information.

Here is the information we are assuming from our research:

Husband: Theodoros (possible Kyros middle name) Asimakopoulos

Wife: First name, Tzennh or Tzennoula (the Greek version of Jenny or Jennifer)

First son: Gus or Constantino Asimakopoulos (He went by Gus Ashemos in the USA. We don't know his Greek name for sure, but we've found a ship record from 1914 for Ellis Island that matches him. He said that his closest relative was his father Theodoros, and he stated that he was joining a cousin V. Veliseriou or Velissaris or Velissariou in Brooklyn, NY.)
Birth: May 21, 1896 (in Greece)
Immigrated to USA around 1910-1916
Lived in Decatur, Illinois most of his life in the USA
Death: July, 1963

Second Son: Kyros Theodoros Asimakopoulos (Changed his name to Kyros Ashemos in the USA, but went by Ashmos. We are not sure if Kyros is a nickname for another name or not. We have been unable to find a ship manifest for him.)
Birth: August 29 or 30, 1900 (in Greece)
Immigrated to USA around 1916
Lived in Decatur, Illinois most of his life in the USA
Married: Around 1921
Death: March, 1979

Daughter?: There may have been a daughter who stayed in Greece: Name unknown. (She would be a sister to Kyros and Gus.) She might have had a daughter and somehow the last name Anagnostopoulos was given to us. (I am thinking this daughter or her daughter might have married someone with that last name.)
