  • Hello,

    Came across a few things which looks like it could possibly be your great grandfather.  Don't know if you have this information already however, here you go.

    -The New York Arriving Passenger and Crew lists:  A Mgrdich Nahabetian was listed as an arriving passenger on May 6, 1916 arrival port New York on the ship named Verdi..  Information on this arrival he was listed as Birth place: Armeina and other birth place: Billis. He was 6 ft.  Last known residence was Buenos Aires, Argentina.  His final destination was Baindale, Michigan.  He listed the person in the USA he knew was a friend,  M Harovtanoff.  

    -There is a Mgrdich Nahabedian buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Alton, Madison County, Illinois. b. 1878 d. 1950.  This is on Find A Grave.  There is a picture of his gravestone and underneath his name is written Emerkan Kouhazie.  If this is your great grandfather you can write or call the Oakwood cemetery and you can probably find out if there is a relative listed on the burial information or a possible contact.  

    -Found a listing for a M. Nahabetion in the Alton, Illinois Evening Telegraph dated February 25, 1950.   The same mention in the paper also listed him as Mgrdich Nahabetian of 35 West Madison, Wood River, died Friday afternoon in Madison county Tuberculosis Sanatorium.  Streeper funeral home, Wood River. Streeper funeral home is now Elias, Kallal & Schaaf funeral home in Alton, Illinois.  They should also be a good contact for having information  about who was in charge of his burial arrangements, a relative and/or other pertinent information.   

    -Land records for 1930-1950 in St. Louis, Missouri you can contact the St. Louis archives via e-mail at archives@st.louiscityrecorder.org   They also have a general website at www.stlouiscityrecorder.org  

    Regards
