NIKOS KARANICHOLAS, born c1830 in Sparta, Peloponnesus, Greece;
son of _____ SERAPHIM born ____ & _____ born ____;
died ____ in _____, Greece.

Originally named NICHOLAOS SERAPHIM in Sparta, Nikos emigrated to Konstantsikon in the state of Kozani, Macedonia around 1850 and changed his name to Karanicholas.

"As part of the historical background of the period, it is important to keep in mind that this was a tumultuous time in the history of modern Greece. In 1821 in Sparta, Peloponnesus, the Greek Revolution began, in order to throw off the Ottoman Turkish subjugation, which had gripped Greece for nearly 400 years. With the help of the European powers, little Greece became a monarchy in 1830, with Otto I of Bavaria (Germany) her first king. Noteworthy is the fact that Nicholas Seraphim undoubtedly witnessed some of this upheaval, and most assuredly his parents did, as some of the most heroic resistance and fiercest battles against the Ottomans came from the Spartan Greek patriots. By the time the Turks were defeated, the Peloponnesus, in particular, had been devastated." [Marianthe Karaberis]
