Ogda (Hagopian) Barton’s mother’s maiden name was Paloutzian.
Three of the unnamed boys are George, Socrates and Peter Paloutzian, Hovhannes' sons.
Here I've added the names to the picture:
 Just saw that I made a mistake in this photo.  Dickranouhi and Zarouhi in the front row are not Thompsons.  They are Toumas' daughters.

  1. Michelle,

    I have that same picture in my living room. Khachadoor Paloutzian was my grandfather. I have some of the names that are missing and Ernie Paloutzian did his own geneology before he passed away. I have it somewhere and would be very happy to share it with you.

    If you ae interested in visiting the places where our ancestors came from there is a person in Souther CA who has been doing personalized "pilgrimages" for about 25 years, but this is supposed to be his last year. I went in 2010 and was able to visit Palu, Kharpert, and some other places that were of interest to me. Eastern Anatolia is a very beautiful place and worth seeing to find your history and to see how our ancestors lived.

    Give me a call at 831 636 0248 if you are interested in more about the trip possibilities.

    Best wishes,

    Ray Garabedian
