I am looking for any and all info. regarding one of the Gebran/Gibran/Gebron families of Bsherri, a village in North Lebanon and home of the famous poet and author Kahlil Gibran. The family I am researching is that of Kahlil Jussef Gebran (Gebran is believed to be the original spelling of the name; Gibran and Gebron are variant spellings of Gebran as a result of mispellings by U.S. immigration officials).

Kahlil Jussef Gebran was Kahlil Gibran's (the famous author) 2nd cousin, or so I have been told. Both his family and the author's family immigrated to Massachusetts around the turn of the 20th century, the former settling in Boston and the latter (Kahlil Gebran's family) settling first in Springfield and then in Worcester, MA. I am a descendant of Kahlil Jussef Gebran's son (American-born??) Peter Joseph Gebron.

Peter Joseph Gebron married Mary Ann "Siti" Kadra, whose family had immigrated from Dia elAhmard/Deir Ahmard(?), another village in the north of Lebanon. This is all the information that I currently have on this particular Gebran/Gebron/Gibran family. Does anyone else have any further info.?
