Looking for information on my great grandfather Nicholas Avctonom Makaroff was born in Stalino, Xanlar, Azerbaijan on 5/22/1883. He maried Anastasia (Nancy) Olchowska (unsure about spelling of last name) who was born in Tusova, Lerik, Azerbaijan around 1885. From what I hear the area was under British rule but was predominantly Russian during this time. Nicholas and Nancy both emigrated to the USA in 1907. Nancy and her baby daughter Milica emigrated on the ship Kronprinzessin Cecilie from Bremen to New York and arrived on 11/6/1907. Its unknown when and how Nicholas arrived. They settled in Connecticut, USA then moved to Queens, NY, USA. They finally moved to Matawan, NJ, USA sometime between 1920 and 1930. Nicholas' fathers name was Artonum Makaroff and the only name I have on his mother is Mariova. Nancy's mothers name was Maria Olchowska. Nicholas and Nancy had two other daughters,Lydia (b. 1910) and Florence (b. 1911)which were both born in the USA.
