Shaheen's From Beirut

  of 23

My grandfather Abraham Shaheen came to AMerica in the early 1900's with his two brothers. I have forgotten their names. But they settled in Detroit. Almost all of the Shaheens in the Detroit area are related from the three brothers. My grandfather married my grandmother and had 6 children. May, Grace, GLoria, George, Billy and Robert (who is my father). My grandfather owned a small restaurant on Jefferson avenue. He died when I was a baby, around 1963. My grandmother was from Lousiana, she was Lebanese too. Her maiden name was George. Thats all I know. I do know that this branch of the family of Shaheen are Marinites.(catholic) ANyone have more information and are they related to this branch of the family?
