About Betros Seman

See also Discussion

"Tannous Betros had no connection with the boy, whose name was probably spelled Betros Samaan. He was travelling with a group of 'Syrians' from Hardin in what is now the Lebanon, and was in the immediate care of his uncle Hanna Samaan and two teenaged cousins who were Hanna's sons. Other members of the Samaan family (who anglicized their name to 'Simon') were already living in the mining town of Wilkes Barre in Pennsylvania, where there was a small community of Lebanese immigrants".
