Zakar, Najar, Stambol: Syria/ Turkey

My information has been updated. Riscalla (William) Zakar came from Turkey. He was born 1887 and came to the states in 1909 at 22 years old. His brother was Thomas Zakar. Thomas had three sons, John, Jacob (Jack) and Saeed (James.) All of the sons had children. Riscalla had three children as well: Thomas, Isabel and Sadie (Sally.) Fareda Najar came to the states from Damascus, Syria in 1906. She would have been 13 or 14. Because of her age, I figured she would have traveled with an older sibling or relative, but I have not had any luck with Ellis Island records so far. Her parents were Hannon (John) Najar and Fareda Stambol. Young Fareda was one of seven sisters. Two of the sisters were twins, born in 1897: Minnie or Mina and Rosa. I will keep searching of course, but if anyone has info on this family, or ideas on what to do next, please post a message for me. Thanks.
