This appears to be the death record of Assanette's mother - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2WRY-8NV

Thankyou all for your help.  I have delved into things and it seems that richard henton was in the army which took him to egypt where he fell ill, where he must have met & married Assanette, where they travelled to New York to try to live.  Richard was allowed in as he was an "Englishman", but unfortunately Assanette, being born in Egypt, was barred as the African quota had been met, they both then travelled to England and tried to travel to New York Again unfortunately for Assanette to be barred again duo to the quota being filled and she was sent to Ellis Island.  Richard fought hard for Assanette and I'm assuming he was successful as she was listed in the 1930 census with Richard in Brooklyn.  I found a number of newspaper articles on the situation, one of which I have attached.  Thankyou again for all your help.  I have solved a family mystery xx

I donít know if this will be seen as I canít tell how long ago this was posted.
I am the grand daughter of the man, John Pashain that you are all talking about on this thread.
He was known as Channes Pachayan over in Egypt and is the man that came over on the boat with a few members of his family.

I just started searching and am having a very difficult finding info as stories that were told before they all passed is nothing what Iím finding.
