Sarah....I just got off the phone with my father, Paul Dilloian (would be your grandmother's generation). I read the names of your great grandmother and grandmother off to him on the phone and he said you are definately the same Kulhanjian's! (and we are both very excited!!!!) Let's see if I can explain it.
Ok....Yaren had a brother John (Onig? in armenian) and another sister (dad can't remember her name but she married an Egasarian). Yaren you said married Leon Ellian. They had three children.....Hyke (dad said he is an attorney), Barbara (who is the oldest child), and another daughter (my dad can't remember her name.
Yaren's brother John, and my grandfather Mergurditch Dilloian were boyhood friends in the old country. After they came to the U.S. they remained very close. My dad is not sure if there is an actual blood relation there, but he thinks my great-grandmother Satenig was somehow related (cousin or sister) to your great-great-grandfather Nahabeth(not sure of spelling) Kulhanjian.
Your mothers cousins would be Ara and Manoog(deceased) Kulhanjian and Melanie Markarian.
You are one generation younger than I am in this tree from the looks of it.
Please E-mail me at Becksmom1@aol.com
. I am very anxious to see how we can fill in gaps for each other in this tree.
Thanks so much!
