She is believed to be the daughter of Yeprad & Yeghisapet Manooshian of Malatya, Turkey in the Ottoman Empire. She married Nazareth Sookiasian and had a son Sarkis in 1899. This means she was probably born in the early 1880s. Nazareth emigrated to Philadelphia in 1900, and possibly after he left Manoushag was found to be pregnant again, because it is believed her daughter Varter Rose is said to have been born in 1901. Manoushag died very young, perhaps due to childbirth with Varter Rose. She was buried in an Armenian cemetery of Malatya (which likely no longer exists) and her children were raised by her husband's parents for the next ten years before emigrating to their father in Philadelphia. Sarkis left Malatya in 1909 and Varter Rose in 1911. Nazareth had written to his family requesting a wife be sent for him, and so Varter Rose was sent to Philadelphia under the care of Mariam Donoian who married Nazareth upon arrival at Ellis Island. Mariam raised Nazareth and Manoushag's two children in Philadelphia as her own and gave birth to four daughters.
