My Grandfather
Posted by: Lisa Hierstein (ID *****7038) Date: July 11, 2010 at 14:24:04

My Grandfather was Harilaos (Harry) Piperakis. He changed his name when he immigrated from Crete through Ellis Island. His name was Harilaos Pappadakis. He had a brother Gus Pappadakis. On the ships papers he stated he was heading to Castle Gate Utah. He became a very well known musician over the years. Even has a recording in Library of Congress. His life prior to my Uncle and fathers birth is still much of a mystery to me. He married my Grandmother in approx 1928 they had 3 children. Would love any info to fill in the blanks.
