I have conducted some family interviews regarding the Damideh family. A family story has interested me. My great-grandfather was Reza Damideh. He had never told anyone regarding his childhood because he wished no one to know his past for he deeply hated it.
Reza was born in a Bagh (Garden) of Ab Ali (a small village outside of Tehran). Apparently he was from a wealthy Iranian family. When his father had passed away when he was 13 years old, Reza had fled from his home. Apparently, his uncle, who wanted control of the Bagh, had spoken to Reza's mother. The people who I have interviewed know nothing regarding the conversation, but it had made Reza run away from home. He left for Tehran, made 3 bakeries, and lived under a surname he created for himself and his descendants, Damideh. Unfortunately, a fire had burned one of his bakeries and had killed a young father. Because of Reza's kindness, he sold his remaining 2 bakeries and gave the money to the family of the father killed in the fire. He passed away at the age of 55 or 56 due to a heart attack and had several children: Fatemeh, Mansureh, Fakhri, Gholam Ali, Gholam Hossein, and Mohsen. I believe that Reza was from a line of Khans in Ab Ali. Usually, there would be a Khan who would tax the farmers and regulate affairs in the village. If anyone has heard of this story or anything similar, please respond to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or answer this forum message. Also, Reza would not reveal his past with great detail, but he stated that he had a sister.
