In Reply to: Re: kassouf family history from lebanon by James Kassouf of 3600

Hello Mr.Kassouf my wife's family is a Kassouf from Zahle, Lebanon. A Joeseph John Kassouf was born in Zahle in 1833 and he died in 1887. He had married Regina Hamaney b.1842 died 1887. I think both of them came to America thru Ellis Island around 1900-1905. First Joseph to find work, then his wife and kids later. I know he had a son Fred Joseph Kassouf Sr.b.1884 in Zahle. Fred and his siblings came to America with their mother and met up with their father in DuBois Pennsylvania. Fred Sr. married a Victoria Lagana,b.1892, from Naples Italy in DuBois Pennsylvania in 1912. He died in 1953 and Victoria died in 1957. They had several children that moved near Pittsburgh. My wife's father was Fred Joseph Kassouf Jr. He was born in 1921 and died in 1987.
I have been looking for more info on this side of the family. let me know if we can help each other fill in the blanks. Thanks, ....Steve
