He was born in Greece in 1896, and was there reared and educated to the age of sixteen years. He came to the United States in 1912 and first located in Lowell, Massachusetts, where he remained for seven months. He then went to Manchester, New Hampshire, where he stayed but a short time, coming from there to California.
