Researching Abou Dewan NASSIEF, father of Samuel Nassief born 10 Mar 1887 in Al Quyun, Ash Shamal, Lebanon.Abou was married to "Mazza." I understand that because of the way names are given to children in Lebanon, Abou Dewan Nassief more than likely had a father whose last name was DEWAN and may have had the family name of [unknown first]Nassief Dewan.
Samuel Nassief married Anna Maria TANNOUS(born 13 Feb 1891 in Babdyet, Lebanon) and had several children born in the USA.
Anna Maria Tannous's parents were David YOUSSEF TANNOUS and Jamelia SHIYA (born 1868 in Lebanon).They had several children besides Anna Maria; Fouteen, Thomas, Saul, Simon, (Anna Maria), Charles, and Maroon.
Would appreciate any knowledge concerning these family lines, even if a direct link may not have been established as of yet, or areas where they are from.Can you help?
