The first Macedonians in US Cencuses were of course Greeks

 

The first Natives from Macedonia who went as immigrants in American Soil and were recorded in US cencuses were of course Greeks.

In the 1880 US Census we find Thomas Protopsaltis,  Antonis Protopsaltis and Konstantinos Trico or Traikos. These Persons identified themselves in the US cencus as being born in Macedonia. Thomas was a 32-year old physician and a widower who was born in Macedonia. He also said that both his father and mother were born in Macedonia. Similarly, Konstantinos was born in Macedonia in 1848 with both

Traiko-Sterios had proudly stated: "My ancestors were Greeks, my father was a Greek. I, too will be a Greek and will die a Greek!!"
parents having been born in Macedonia, and he was also single and a minister. In another desperate attempt, FYROM’s mouthpieces in American Chronicle tried to claim the above persons as being Slavs, but they failed as usual. They bear easily recongnisable Greek surnames that exist even today in Macedonia and the rest of Greece.

 In fact members of Traikos family were mentioned in books about Macedonia. They were portrayed as being Proud Greeks who were sacrificed for Hellenism. Ironically, some were butchered by the Bulgarian Komitadjis whose  descedants now, try unsuccessfully to claim the people they brutally murdered as being of their own kin.

Like we can read in the attached picture Traiko-Sterios had proudly stated:

“My ancestors were Greeks, my father was a Greek. I, too will be a Greek and will die a Greek!!”
