* Almast Bakalian Kedersha, 1892-1986, was the daughter of Kevork Bakalian and Takui Eguinian, sister of Haigag. She was born in Diyarbakir, Turkey. She married Jacob Kedersha of the same city in 1911, and they arrived in the USA in 1913.
** Carolyn recently filled me in on the details of Haigag Eguinian's life and career. Haigag Eguinian became a US Citizen in April 1888 at Jersey City. He married Azniv Altounian on September 7, 1902 at Trinity Armenian Church in Fresno, CA. When he died of heart failure at the age 9f 42, he left two daughters, Nevart (7) and Zabelle (14). They and their mother moved to San Francisco after their father's death. Haigag published Nor Giank (New Life) in New Jersey and upon relocateding to Fresno, published Nor Or (New Day) which is still being published in Armenian. Publication moved to Los Angeles 10/27/64-2/17/87, and then to Altadena CA 2/20/87 to the present. Haigag's daughter donated her father's papers to UCLA in April, 1976.
