Tomas Davis b. 1893 Syria

I'm just getting started on this side of the family. I was wondering if anyone could help me with last name prononceation and proper spelling.

My grandfater on my mothers side was Tomas, he last name was americanized to Davis, but I know it was prononuced Da-vid. My mothers marriage cert says he was born in Syria 1893, but I remember many a day as a kid listening to his stories about Lebanon and camel herding. I believe he had a brother name Toluse (again spelling ?)

What I do have
