Abe Farrah and Julia (Murray) Farrah Families
Posted by: Rebecca Leeper (ID *****2974) Date: April 06, 2002 at 11:24:01
  of 45

I am doing a tree for my mother-in-law, Adele (Farrah) Leeper from New Stanton, PA. Her family tree is very difficult as neither her father (Abe) nor mother (Julia) were born in this country. The most she can remember is that they were from Syria...or Lebonen. I need help. Abe had 2 sisters a Selema Salloom (Mt Pleasant, PA) and a name that sounds like Veronica. She does think that there may have been other siblings but does not know. Her mother Julia Murray was also from Syria or Lebonen. Julia's siter Kate Shea and her brothers, Sam, Gabriel and Michael were all settled in the state of Washington.

I do need to explain that when Abe and Julia came over they did not speak English but Arabic. The names that Adele knows are what sounds like, or how they got changed when they immigrated here.

If anyone has any information please e-mail me or post here.
