Hello! I have been trying to find any information on my husband's ancestors and family and noticed that we have a name or two in common. Thought I would check it out. My husband's grandfather (Sam Richard) had the surname Feghali in Lebanon before he came to the United States. He supposedly was from the Beirut area.) I know that he had a sister (Helena) and a brother (who worked for the French embassy, who stayed in Lebanon. They were of the Catholic faith. After coming to the states, Sam married Mateel (Ethel) Hannah Joseph. (She too came to the States from Lebanon with several of her siblings...Martha, Charles, Elias, Anna, Sadie, Toufik, Amelia, and Mary. Mateel's parents were Joseph Monsour and Freida Joseph...going back to Butrus Peter.)
Sam and Mateel Richard settled in Oklahoma, lived in Drumright, Shawnee, and Bristow. Sam died at a young age in abt 1925 and is buried in Bristow. He and Mateel had 3 children: Phillip, Rhoda (Roda) and Joe. Please contact me if any of these names connect. I know it isn't a lot to go on, but its all we have...
Thanks! Suzann Richard
