My great grandparents are Ruth Corey (Nojaim) and Nicholas Corey. It was Khoury in Lebanon and Americanized via Ellis Island. Ruth had 4 brothers: Richard, Charles, Paul, and Alex Nojaim. Paul was married to Sadie Nojaim who we believe was formerly a Zogby. I have found a few Ellis Island records that I'm not 100% sure on because they state Syrian as the ethnic backgrounds and my grandmother seems certain that can't be right. Anyhow the records state that Ruth Corey who was already married arrived in 1921 at the age of 27 with a Harold Corey who was 32. This makes sense because my grandfather (Ruth's son, Frederick Philip Corey) was born in 1925 in the US. HELP???
