I have a Kalil (Kahlil?) Ferris. Not ferris Kalil. He came over in 1892 as the family history goes, with his daughter Sadie. She was born in 1879 in Ferzol, Lebanon. I cant find any records here of Kalil but His wife, Anna Haddah, lived with one of her sisters after she was widowed. That is on the 1930 census as Anna Ferris, living with a Handomey Hathoot (her daughter).

Sadie Ferris married Abraham joseph fromo Ferzol Lebanon (married in South Dakota) and lived in Valentine Nebraska. Kalil supposedly lived in Chicago. I have a photo of him with Sadie and the names of some brothers and sisters but I cannot locate him. He had cousins or children in New York City as well. All the children that I know of were born in Lebanon.

Hope that helps.
