Looking for any information related to the following below. Open to spelling suggestions and/or hints, as no one in my family can give an original confirmed spelling. The information I have been able to complie thus far is a mix of family story and Thanks in advance!!

Alexandre Dib/Deeb Auen/Ouen was born around 1891 in Sulbeen (sp?) Lebanon by the Israeli border. He came to Ellis Island in 1909 with his brother Toufic. Alexandre's name was changed to Alexander Deep. He married Mary Harb/Harp (also from Lebanon) and settled in Sherburne, Chenango, New York, Lawrence MA, and Danbury CT. He died in 1961 in Danbury CT.

Mary Harb/Harp was born in 1899 in Farzina Lebanon. Granddaughter of Honnah Harb/Harp. Daughter of Nassif/Nosef Harb/Harp and Wistenie/Oustina Atoya/Attia. She arrived in 1902 and lived in Sherburne, Chenango, New York, Lawrence MA, and Danbury CT. Married Alexander Deep in 1915 in Utica NY. She died in 1979 in Danbury, CT. I believe she had 3 bothers and sisters...Fadha, Rasheed and Mersheed. Father Nassif was said to be killed by the Turks in Cuba. Mother Wistenie/Oustina (Mary) may have immigrated with daughter Mary from Cuba.

Hannah Atallah was born in Syria/Lebanon around 1894 and married Ferris (Frank) Anthony Attalla (born 1887), also from Syria/Lebanon.. possibly Baalbek. Ferris (Frank) came to USA in 1909. He and his wife lived in East Orange NJ and had 9 children.
