    Notes 
    • Stephen G. Galatti (along with Pantoleon G. Galatti, likely his brother) is among the 12 Greek youths brought to New York between 1823-1831 by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. [2]
    • Education: 1829, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut USA.
    • "Stephano and Pantoleon Galati, arrived in October last...The ages of Stephano and Pantoleon are 16 and 12 years. They belong to a very respectable family of Scio, which had the misfortune to lose its possessions, when the Turks made that beautiful island a desolation. These youths, with a younger brother, under the care of their mother, and in company with a few relatives and neighbors, escaped from the island in a small vessel, after having witenessed from a distance the devastation of the city, and after having concealed themselves for eleven days in uninhabited districts. Here they suffered from hunger, exposure, and agonizing terror; but were mercifully delivered, though a vast majority of their countrymen fell a sacrifice to the unrelenting barbarity of the Turks. In the Morea they were joined by the father, who had left Scio before them. From thence they, with much difficulty, succeeded in reaching Malta, the father remaining behind. The expense of outfit and passage of these youths to this country, was defrayed by a maternal uncle." He was studying at an academy in New Haven, CN, in 1823. [3]
    • (Sikanon) Judge of Aréopage. Professor at University of Athens. Chevalier de l'Ordre du Sauveur (Christopher Long).
