Salemy--El Monsif/Mt Lebanon

I am looking for info on my Lebanese family.My gg-grandfather Michael John Salemy immigrated to the U.S. from El Monsif Lebanon around 1893.He settled in Meridian, Mississippi.When he came to Mississippi, he dropped Salemy and just went by Mike John.He went back to Lebanon a few years later and married a woman named Carry M. (I don't know what the M stands for; it was on her tombstone.) When he returned with Carry to Mississippi, he brought other families with him from Lebanon--Farris, Nasser, Thomas, Mitchell, George, and Abraham. Michael and Carry had 3 children--Victor, Albert, and Edna.Michael's sister Mary married Joseph Farris and they had 4 children that I know of--Fred, Adeed, Venea, and Vicki.Michael also had a brother named George John Salemy, I believe, who died around 1915.I do not know if he had any children or if he ever married.I am related to the Nassers somehow.I had and uncle named George Nasser and his wife's name was Bertha.It is possible that I still have family living in El Monsif or somewhere in Lebanon and I would like to get in touch with them.If anyone has any info about the Salemys or even about El Monsif or the other families i mentioned, I would greatly appreciate it.
