Connecting the dots to Adam and Eve... Well Almost

The descendants of Adam and Eve up to the Habeeb family were taken from the book, first published in Arabic by Isa Ma’loof of Zahle, Lebanon and translated into English and expanded by George Maloof of Texas (1992).

Hashim Abi Habeeb
Original Settler
Hashim Abi-Habeeb who was the original founder of Kousba from the Habeeb family, had seven sons. Three of the seven left the Village of Kousba. One went to Beirut, Lebanon, where his family is still known by the Habeeb name. Another went to Berj Sofita (Tower of Sofita), an area in Syria adjacent to the northern boundary with Lebanon where his family name still is carried on. The third son died leaving no child.

Habeeb Family Tree beginning in 1540, with Hashim Abi-Habeeb (base of trunk) and including his four sons who remained in Kousba (the four major branches) Farah, Faris, Obeid, and Antonius. The leaves on the tree contain the names of the 1977 generation living at the time the tree was painted. As is the custom in Lebanon, only males are listed on the tree. Females are considered as part of their husband’s family.
