I am seeking any information on the family of my great-grandfather, Lee SCAFF. The information I have is limited to the following:
Lee was born in 1891 in Nazareth, Palestine. His father, Amin John SKAF, was Syrian. Lee's SS5 form lists his mother's name as Mary ROID. Lee emigrated to the United States with his father in the 1890s, and settled in Bridgeport, TX, where for some reason, the spelling of SKAF was changed to SCAFF. There, Lee married Minnie DIAZ and had six children: Jim, Oscar, Charlie, Dora, Anneita & Mary (my grandmother).
I know Lee had relatives (I believe they may have been his brothers) living in Saida, Lebanon, as late as 1975. Their names were Toufic & Said Skaf.
I would dearly love to learn more of my Middle Eastern heritage. ANY info would be greatly appreciated. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
