A million thanks to Joyce for finding my family in Toledo, Ohio. I am forever grateful.

On the City of Toledo Forest Cemetery Graves Tracking System cover sheet, her name is listed ASTIKIAN, INFANT and in handwriting "girl". I have posted this to help with clarification and to avoid duplication.

"The Ohio Historical Society, Ohio Death Certificate Index Searchable Database. ASTIKIAN,Stillborn Death date: 12/12/1927, Cuyahoga County Volume #155, Certificate #4508."

"City of Toledo Forest Cemetery Graves Tracking System ID:26667. Cover sheet Infant Astikian. Ledger document Astikian Baby (girl). Section Old Commons. Grave 9629, Block 36, Location Middle Travis Road, MTR 39'-9". "

"Ohio Deaths, 1908-1932, 1938-1944, and 1958-2007 Record for Stillborn Astikian. Volume 0155, certificate 04508, date of death, 12/12/1927."

"State of Ohio Department of Health Division of Vital Statistics Certificate of Death. File No. 4508, Registered No. 9667. Baby Astikian, Female, Date of Birth Dec. 12, 1927. Date of Death Dec. 12, 1927. Father and mother Yeprem Astikian and Satenig Cassabian. Cause of death Prolaps of Cord."

She was a stillborn baby girl. She was named Rainbow, even though it does not appear on her death certificate. My grandmother wrote her name in Armenian in the family bible and sadly she crossed it out when she lost the baby.

This baby is Yeprem Astikian and Satenig Cassabian's daughter. They named her in Armenian Zeizon, which means Rainbow. We had heard this name throughout the years, but until I did the research did I find out her identity and life history.

Rainbow died on the same day as the Baby Astikian son of Stephen Astikian and Hadji-Kez Demirjian Astikian. Stephen Astikian and Yeprem Astikian are brothers.

Rainbow is my aunt, my mom is Nancy June Astikian. Astikian-Yepremian-Cassabian family tree
