I dont know if they are related but my great great grandfather came to America around 1888. His name was Abraham Joseph and he came from Ferzol, Lebanon. His father remained in Lebanon. His name was Joseph Thomas and his wife was Martha Haddad(Haddah).
Abraham married a woman named Sadie Ferris, also from Lebanon, we think also from Ferzol. Her father was Kalil. I dont know his last name, I assume Ferris since he came to America with his daughter. His wife also came and her name was Anna Haddad (Haddah). I cant find records of Kalil here but I can find his wife living with her daughter Handomey (Handoumie). She is listed as Anna Ferris.
The Joseph's lived in Nebraska in Valentine and Omaha but the brothers and sisters of Sadie and Abraham lived in other places in the country too. Kalil lived in Chicago.
Both Abraham and Kalil arrived in NY and worked their way to chicago. Hope that helps.
