It was signed Leon Nahikian. But was either done by Sarkis Marookeh Nahikian born 1893 or his younger brother Dickran Marookeh Nahikian born 1899. This family emigrated from Armenia to Worcester, Mass in 1898, and moved to Michigan c 1915. Leon Narhikian is listed once in the Detroit city directory, but in every vital record both brothers used their Armenian names.
In 1918 a Marookeh Nahikian of Detroit was named as "brother" of Mardig Nahikian when Mardig registered for the WW 1 draft.

How the Nahikian family knew the family living at 62 Main Street in Farmington is a mystery.
The family living at 62 Main in the 1920 census was Chester Moulton and his wife and children. Chester was a fruit farmer. He had been married previously in 1899 to Edith Ham, had 5 children, but his wife left him and the children before 1910. A woman listed as "boarder" in his 1910 household, Carrie B. Jones, was "wife" by 1940 census although they did not marry until 1942.
