I got your name from ancestry.com. My name is Edward Kassabian and i was born and raised in Philadelphia PA. My father and mother came from TURKEY 1920 to USA. I remember my father was telling that when he went, into exile from Diyarbakir in Turkey that his older brother (Karnig Kassabian) got lost, he had tears in his eyes. With him was his uncle and younger brother Souren. They managed to get to the Syrian border and finally to the US.
Their sister virgin made it to Iraq where she married Dikran and we all re-united in Philadelphia in 1950s. but their brother Karnig got lost and for years , we looked for him. Please let me know if you learn anything more about Karnig Kassabian
God Bless you,
