    • In his book George Zarifi says "Catherine Psomadis married an Agelasto in Belgium". He might, though, have meant: an Agelasto [who was living and working] in Belgium. That actually leaves the question unanswered--where exactly the marriage took place--but doesn´t make things less confusing. (George Agelastos)

    • The marriage of John Agelasto and Victoria Verbracken was registered Jan-Feb-Mar 1887, v. 1b, Islington, Middlesex, England. Argenti has the date: 20 Jun 1884; Constantine Couclelis agrees: "Most probably not married in 1887, ie after the birth of her daughter Jeanne!" It is possible there was a religous ceremony in Belgium, followed several years later by marriage registration in the UK.
