1st photo, Forest Cemetery, Toledo, Ohio. A million thanks to Joyce for finding my family in Forest Cemetery. I am forever grateful.

2nd photo, family picnic in Toledo, Ohio, summer 1927. Satenig is pregnant with Rainbow. Left to right, Yeprem Astikian, Harry Astikian, Elizabeth Mirjanian Cassabian, Grace Astikian, Isabell Astikian, Varsenig unknown Cassabian, Satenig Cassabian and Alice Astikian.

3rd photo, Rainbow's parents, 50th wedding anniversary. Photo taken at their residence, 1146 South Victoria Avenue, Los Angeles, California, September 1962. Yeprem Nazaret Astikian and Satenig Sarkis Cassabian.

Yeprem Astikian and Satenig Cassabian named their daughter Zeizon, which means Rainbow. We had heard this name throughout the years, but no one ever told her story. Handwritten papers revealed her identity and life history.

Rainbow was a stillborn baby girl. She was named Rainbow, but 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.

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