    Notes 
    • Unknown to Argenti. This placement of Paul, although problematic, seems the best fit for the data. The name continuity makes the Paul line logically go here on the Psomas branch. Information on Paul and his ancestry comes from Zolotas and is contained in a letter this man's grandson, also named Paul, wrote (We have a French translation, the provenance of which is unknown.) Although relevant birth, marriage or death certificates don't exist, a legal document from Chios establishes Paul's presence there and says that he had brothers. On occasion Argenti omitted and misplaced individuals; that's what could have happened in this case. The length between generations is excessive (suggesting we have missed a generation), but marriages and births that occurred around the 1822 Diaspora may well have been delayed. (Michael Agelasto)
    • Zolotas says he and his wife are buried at Panaghiá in Cocorovilia, Chios.
    • Residence: Giazo (Ghiazou) castle, Chios (Zolotas).
    • This branch, the Psomades (Bakers), also owned property at the Kambo, that has now passed through to L. Vrousi, George Kris and M. Souka, at the narrow part which leads from the intersection of the main road to Francovounio and the path to Sermbo leads to the foothills and to Our Lady (Panaghia) of Chaviara (near Saint Tryphon) and to the Rallica. See Christina Stephen Agelasto's 1983 essay.
    • As the usual Greek pronunciation for the French "Monsieur" is "Messié", this could easily be distorted to "Missé". In Greek upper class families, the use of the French language was considered a sign of nobility (hence Jean/Zannis instead of the ordinary Ioannis). "Apprendre le francais et le piano" was a must for young females of the upper class. And I can imagine a "noble and rich" Greek (e.g. my grandfather´s grandfather) attaching importance to being addressed as "Monsieur Pavlís". (George Agelasto)
    • Testament: Paul's original testament was drawn up at the notary's office in 1845, with 4 witnesses. A small additional chapter, dated 8 Apr 1855, was signed by Paul himself. A concluding chapter, dated 22 Mar 1856, describes an arrangement between Loula Agelasto and her brothers Eustratios and Lukas, confirmed "after their father's death". This means that Paul died sometime between those two dates, most probably shortly before the last one, i.e. Feb/March 1856.
      From the method Paul used in distributing his fortune among his children, it seems that Eustratios was his eldest son and already of full age in 1845. Lukas and Stamati must have been still under age at that time as the sums of money willed to them had to be given to their legal guardians and invested in favor of the two children. We don't know how old Loula, Paul's daughter, was in 1845. The fact that Paul willed to her his whole land ownership indicates that she was not married and that this property was meant as a dowry. But if she was still a child, or a teenager, or a young woman, remains unclear.
      The will indicates that Paul had still another daughter, obviously older than Loula and perhaps even older than Eustratios, his first son. He willed a small sum of money "to his daughter Maria, married to John Z[orzis?] Mitarakis." [Argenti has a John Mitarakis married to a Maria (Sinadino), a generation or two later, perhaps this John's grandson.] -- George Agelastos (2014)
