My grandfather, Gabriel Siadi, was from Beirut. He departed Naples, 12/17/1908, on the Italia, and arrived at Ellis Island 1/2/1909. His father, who had died by that time, was a priest, and had a plantation in Beruit. Gabriel had a brother named Philip, who settled in Albany, NY, and then in Detroit,MI.They had a brother Joseph who died at 7yo, and 2 sisters Ruth and Philipe (sp?), who remained in Beiruit, as did their mother, Lillian(? Arabic was similar to this). They had 3 maternal, uncles who also settled in Albany-Charles, Michael and James Mosher(sp?). Would love to know more about location of plantation and family. Gabriel lost his mother and sisters during the influenza outbreak.My understanding is that Beruit, belonged to Syria at the time, when Gabriel was there. Any info appreciated.
