Mesrop Ackers lived in Baltimore and was a successful oriental carpet man with two sons and some Armenian connection (wife?) although he was active in Assyrian affairs. The family had a CA connection as well. He was a tall thin handsome man with a Dali look to him.

We knew him because they often came to Philadelphia for Assyrian affairs and to visit friends. We must have some photographs in our albums. But we have moved from Phila to New England and have lost touch. If you are trying to build a family history, I might be able to find the photos at least.

I am pretty sure he and perhaps his brother came to the US via Marseilles after WWI and not Paris. But I could be wrong.
