Looking for parents and other ancestors of Kasbar Palouian in Armenia (which was under Turkish rule at the time of his emmigration to USA). He was born around 1893 and arrived in USA about 1915. Some online data bases of the USA 1920 census list him as "Kasper Paloman" -- a misreading of the census taker's handwriting of "ui" for an "m" I think. (I have a copy of the doc.) His wife is listed as "Haigooj" on the 1920 census and "Haigathi" on the 1930 census. Also "Haigoog" on some online lists. His occupation is listed as storekeeper in 1920 and manufacturer of ice cream cones in 1930. He was living in Philadelphia both censuses and in 1930 had children John (M), Armenia (F), Araxy (F), Masis (M) and Haig (M). On some lists Masis is listed as Moses (again probably a handwriting problem -- whoever took that page of the 1930 census had AWFUL penmanship!) There was also a Maro Palouian (F) living in the USA who might have been a sister of Kasbar. She died in Delaware in 1998.

There are 4 Paluyans listed in the Istanbul telephone directory.

Hope this helps.
