My great-grandmother, Fahda Choueiri, came from Zahle, Lebanon in the early 1900s to the U.S. where she met my great-grandfather, Habib Maroon. They originally settled in Akron, Ohio, but later moved to Youngstown, Ohio. Apparently, she spelled her last name "Schiwery".
I also understand that some of my great-grandmother's relatives, also named Choueiri, settled in Canada, presumably Ontario.
My family is unsure of the origins of my great-grandfather, though. They are under the impression that he is Lebanese, but they think he might also be Syrian.
If "Maroon" is, in fact, a Lebanese name, where might my great-grandfather have originated from? Also, if anybody is aware of any other information about the Choueiri or Maroon families, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
