I sent an email to the address that had on your profile but I dont think it made it. We may be talking about 2 Kahlils or maybe not. I dont know. Mine would have been from the mid 1800's. His wife was born in 1855 and her name was Anna. I have a tree on if you would like to look at it.

What I know is that Kahlil Ferris from Ferzol, Lebanon came to America first and had five children. Sadie was born in 1879 and was the oldest. She married Abraham Joseph and they lived in Nebraska. Her sister Handomie Ferris married William Hathoot and they moved to Omaha, Nebraska. She came around 1903. Solomon, Rose and Mansour came too but I dont have dates and I dont know the sister's married names or where they lived. There is a Monsour Ferris who moved to Omaha, NE. He married a different Sadie. (I am checking to see if she is the same Sadie Ferris that I can see on the ship that Handomie travelled on.)

I am told that Youness is the family name but I dont know if it applies to my Joseph side or my Ferris side. I know that my great grandfather (Sadie's Husband), Abraham Joseph had a father named Joseph Thomas Hannah and his wife was Martha. They stayed in Ferzol.
