Manzoian/Menzoian, Aslanian, and Surabian in Harput
Posted by: Lindsay (ID *****8959) Date: February 17, 2009 at 20:23:41

My great-grandparents were named Ohannas/John Manzoian and Agavani (Aslanian) Manzoian. They were born born in Harput around 1885-1888 and Ohannas immigrated to the US in 1909 and Agavani in 1912. I know Agavani had a sister named Anna Aslanian, but I do not know if she ever made it to the US, to another county, or died. She was still living in Harput in 1912.

Ohannas and Agavani had three children in the US (and supposedly twins before immigrating that died):
Anna - born in 1919 in Worcester and died in 2008 in West Warwick
Helen - born in 1923 in Providence and died in 1974 in Providence
Paul (grandfather) - born 1925 in Providence and died in 1977 in Cleveland

Ohannas died in 1972 in Fresno. I do not know when Agavani died, but I believe it was likely in the 1950s (as she was dead before my mother was born).

According to my grandmother, he had a cousin named Andrew Surabian, who I believe was born around 1920-1925. I do not know if the Surabians were on his mother or his father's side of the family, but they lived in the US (either in MA or RI most likely).

Any information regarding any of these families or information about Harput is greatly appreciated!! Thanks!
