Nikolaos Sakopoulos, born in Milos, was the father in law of George Horton. In 1909, Horton married the daughter of Sakkopoulos - Aikaterini.

From this marriage Nancy Horton was born - presently ( 2008) living in Greece.

The father of Nikolaos Sakopoulos, born in Syfnos on Septermber 13, 1790, was a pilot aboard the navy ships of France.
