i am checking records to find out that if David was any relations to me. My grandfather Hovaness Vartanian was born is eastern turkey in 1892. In the 1950's a lot of Armenians, including my family came to Hamilton and set up in and around Princess St. We had the Armenian center, and the coffee shop where I would always find my grandfather playing backgammon(tavli). I have been to the cemetary in Michigan where David lies, and is surrounded by many Armenians.DV
I am searching for information on George Martin (but I believe the true surname was Vartanian) who lived in Higland Park, MI, near Detroit. I believe he was born around 1926. If you have any information whatsoever, please contact me. Much appreciated.
