I'm searching fro any information on the surnames MIKE and SALIBA in the southern Illinois and northeastern Arkansas area (Herrin and Cairo, IL and Manila AR). My Grandfather, Hebeb MIKE (my surname MIKE may have been shortened from MEKHAYEL during immigration) immigrated from Syria with his brothers just prior to 1900 I think. I would appreciate any information or suggestions.
