Martin Kouri, (also known as Dmitri Fuad Kouri) He is my grandfather, born in Beirut, March 28, 1879; came to America to attend medical school in St Louis. His father, Fuad Kouri was from Beirut and his mother was Mary Jureirdini, from one of the villages, (not sure which one). His brothers and sisters were Edna, (married John Sture in New York) and returned to Lebanon later in life. She and her sister, Adelaide Kouri Richani, fled Lebanon during the civil war, and vanished somewhere in Cyprus. Martin Kouri's other siblings are Arthur, Fred, and Edward. Alternate spelling of part of the family is Koure. If this is enough information to assist in finding my family's Family Registration Civil Number and/or other information on my family, I would be very interested. The family was Maronite Catholic. They are also related to the late Fuad Sarouf who was president of the American University in Beirut.
