I am looking for information on my family - Coury/Khoury/Khouri.

My family originates from Lebanon/Syria. My Gr.Gr. Grandfather, Who's first name is unknown, had 3 known sons. He had one by his first marriage, and two by his second.

The first son, by the first marriage, was my great grandfather Abraham. He married Margaret Barkey and had 5 Children - William Paul, Adele, Genevieve, and Fred. This is where the my named changed from Khouy to Coury. There was also talk that Abraham went also by the last name "Khouri."

The second son, from the second marriage is John Khoury. John was married twice also, and had two sons - Eddie, by the first marriage and John Jr. by the second marriage.. John Sr. second wife was named Carrie.

The third son was George. He was also born of the second marriage and had "many children" as the family tale goes.

If anyone sees a possible match. Please contact me. My email is

There is talk in my family that the Khoury's originated from a town pronounced "Kaf-fa-WHO-na, which I have been unable to locate as of yet from maps of Syria or Lebanon.
