My father was Dimetrios Ionnais(sp) Pazias. Born Sept18 1897in Larrisa Greece. Emmigrated to USA 9/14/1910. I am looking for anyone with that name from that area. Also looking for immigration record. He lived in Joplin Mo in 1911 or 1912 and was a bootblack until he started boxing in 1912.
His American name was James John Pappas. He was a professional boxer from 1912 to 1923. Known as the Little Atlantic Greek. He died in Chicago Sept 7 1950.
If you have that name please let me know. He also had an uncle Christos Ziogus.
