Maroon and Peters Surnames

I am seeking info on my Lebanese ancestors. My Great Grandfather came to the United states in 1908 with his sister Hiffa. His brother Abdalla was already here, having arrived in 1905. They originally resided in Utica New York. My GG later went to Springfield Mass, where he lived until his death. Abdalla stayed in New York, dying in Brooklyn. The sister I am having trouble with. According to my GG's obituary his sisters name was Mrs. Serafin. I can find no "Hiffa Sarfine" online.

My Great Grandmother was Wadia Peters. I am not sure when she came to America, but she was here prior to her sister Zahia and brother Joseph coming here in 1910. She had several siblings here in the U.S.; Milead, Salmien, Salim, Joseph, John, and sister Zahia.

If anyone has any info on any of these people I would appreciate hearing from you.
