The First Greek in America


THE FIRST GREEK IN AMERICA


"Most BEACH Clearwater Pinellas Residents think That The First Greeks in this area Sponge Divers were brought to Tarpon Springs A Century ago to work The Rich Sponge beds Near The Mouth of The Anclote River.


But the first Greek known to have visited Pinellas shores actually stepped ashore on April 14, 1528 as a member of the ill-fated Panfilo de Narvaez expedition. His crewmates called him Theodoros Greco (Theodore the Greek)."
