She has forwarded three (3) attachments from PARSI STATUES by Marzban J. Giara. The first is a picture of ๐’๐ข๐ซ ๐๐ก๐ข๐ซ๐จ๐ณ๐ž ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฌ๐ž๐ญ๐ฃ๐ž๐ž ๐’๐ž๐ญ๐ก๐ง๐š who was the grandson of Dhunjibhai Behramji Mehta of Calcutta. The second is Page 140 from the book where the biography of Sir Phiroze begins. And the third attachment tells us that Sir Phiroze died in 1938 while the book was being printed. Besides, Mrs Prochy Mehta also says that with your help she hopes to connect with ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐๐ž๐ฌ๐œ๐ž๐ง๐๐š๐ง๐ญ๐ฌ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ƒ๐ก๐ฎ๐ง๐ฃ๐ข๐›๐ก๐š๐ข ๐๐ž๐ก๐ซ๐š๐ฆ๐ฃ๐ข ๐Œ๐ž๐ก๐ญ๐š who had built an Agiary in Kolkata.

Phiroze Cursetji Sethna was the eldest son of his daughter Dinbai married to Cursetji Sethna. So I presume there were other brothers and sisters and their families who would qualify as descendants. Would appreciate it if you widened your search among family and friends. Thank you. With best wishes, dara: 2DaraS Acidwalla <2darasacidwalla@gmail.com>.
