Melkon Markarian and his family settled in Fresno in 1882. He came with his wife, three sons, and two daughters.

The Markarians were the first Armenians to build a house in Fresno. Though they started out with little money, the Markarians eventually became a prominent family in agriculture, particularly in the packaging and shipping of figs.

One of their fig orchards is now the site of Manchester Center, at the corner of Blackstone and Shields Avenues.

The Markarian Family, including Melkon and his sons Aram, Henry, and Frank, is buried in Plot 1, Lot 23.
