I saw a geneology posting regarding the Haykel/Haikel/Heikel family in Lebanon.
I am searching for Abdullah Haykel beleived to be born 2 JUNE 1768 he was married to Fairuze George Shofany
children were: Giries Abdullah Karram b. Nazareth 1780 Bascal Abdullah Karram b. 4/14/1793 Mousa Abdullah Karram b. 8/15/1792 Foleen Abdullah Karram b. 10/21/1795 Rose Abdullah Karram b. 3/2/1796 Mirian Abdullah Karram b. 10/9/1797
The above dates are from church records but the space between them makes them a little questionable. I doubt most the date of Giries his children began being born about 1810 (1810, 1813, 1816, 1818, 1822), maybe he was born closer to 1790.
In Nazareth they were Roman Catholics but I would assume that in Lebanon they were Maronite. The family tradition has it that the name was changed because they had a large amount of land/gardens.
I have descendants of Giries & Mousa up to the present for many lines.
If you or anyone in the familymight know anything about Abdullah, your assistance would greatly be appreciated.
