"Ohio Deaths, 1908-1932, 1938-1944, and 1958-2007 Record for Nazaret Astikian. State File Number, Volume 2324, Certificate 46913, date of death 07/10/1917."

"State of Ohio Bureau of Vital Statistics Certificate of Death. File No. 46913, Registered No. 2230. Nazareth Astikian male, dob 6/21/1915, dod July 10, 1917. Cause of death, multiple fractures of skull, accidental fall thru window to the sidewalk. Yeprem Astikian and Satenig Cassabian, father and mother."
According to Armenian tradtion, the offspring's middle is the father's first name. Hence, Nazaret Yeprem. The death certificate does not have Yeprem on it. But to clarify the records I have included this a lineage reference, because Stephen Astikian, Yeprem's brother also named his son Nazaret who died in 1916.

On July 7, 1917, tragically, Nazaret fell out of the two story window of the family's home, while under the care of his grandmother, Haji Maritza Mary Yepremian Astikian. This photo of baby Nazaret hung in my grandmother Satenig's bedroom in Los Angeles, until her death in 2002. She never spoke of him. The pain of losing her child must have been unbearable. After considerable research Nazaret has a memorial and a place in our family tree.

Nazaret is named after his paternal grandfather, Haji Nazaret Astikian 1837-1913. Haji Nazaret sponsored 22 Armenians to come to America. "Haji" denotes that he traveled to the Holy Land on a pilgrimage. He and his wife were devout Christians.
