My great great grandfather was named Khalil Ferris from Ferzol Lebanon. He came to america in around 1892 and His wife was Anna Ferris (Hahhah). They had five children that I know of: Rose Ferris, Solomon Ferris, Sadie Ferris (Born 12/26/1879), Mansour, and Handomie. All the children were born in Lebanon.
Sadie married my great great grandfather Abraham Joseph, Son of Joseph Thomas (family name Unis)from Ferzol, Lebanon. They met and were married in South Dakota and then moved to Valentine Nebraska.

Khalil lived in Chicago when he met Abraham. The family members, Joseph and Ferris, live mostly in Nebraska. I have no idea what became of Khalil. His wife Anna moved in with her daughter Handomie in Omaha, Nebraska and can be seen in the 1930 Census (Handomie spelled Handemy on census). Anna's birthday was in 1855.

Let me know if you come across any of these people. I am still trying to track Khalil down in the records and cannot find him. I have a photo of him in Chicago with Sadie around 1894.
