This Ilya is also in "Nezabytye mogily" book. No birth date, just 'died 11/24 September 1934, Ireland'.

Besides, one more Kuris from this book - Kuris Nikolay, (? - 16 August 1977), Dublin, Ireland, priest

Wonder if there's a connection here? "among them Nicholas Couriss, who much later became this country's first resident Orthodox priest"... "Fr. Nicholas himself died in August 1977."

N.J. Couriss mentioned here-
K. K. Pahlen, Mission to Turkestan: Being the Memoirs of Count K.K. Pahlen, 1908-1909, (trans.) N. J. Couriss (London: Oxford University Press, 1964).

Monday 26th November 1973

Article details how a Dublin man (Dr. Edward Brennan) is to become our first Ambassador in Russia. Notes some details on him and his education and concludes with :

'.. took up E.E.C. post in 1968 but prior to that, studied Russian in Collon, Co. Louth, under Nicholas Couriss and his wife Xenia. Mr Couriss is a former captain in the White Russian Imperial Army.'

How far one simple question can lead:

Rori McGowan, Catholic apostatized to Russian Orthodox under influence of priest Nikolay Kuris. Was member of Russian Orthodox Church in Dublin from 1965 till his recent death.

(it is in Russian but at least you can see this fairy-tale Rori)

N.J. Couriss apparently translated lots of books. If you google "couriss & ireland" you get an English translation of the Ruari McGowan article and much more.

extracts of one more article..

19th Aug 1977 (Fri)

'Rev. Nicholas Couriss of 45 Pembroke Lane, Dublin who has died, was a member of the Russian Orthodox Church.. also ministered to members of the Greek Orthodox Church for the last 10 years... aged 81, he was born in St. Petersbourg'

'... during the Russian Revolution he joined the White Army, later coming west and settling in Collon, Co. Louth. .... he specialized in the growing of Mushrooms, being a pioneer of the industry in this country.'

[after death of Xenia] '..Rev. Couriss took up the study of Theology and was ordained in the Russian Orthodox Church-in-Exile in New York the following year.'

'...He is survived by his sister, Miss Luba de Couriss'
