Daniel Pinna Nabil- I found this on the US embassy website. Was this the home of Doctor Michael Meshaka, who served as the United States vice consul?

Daniel Pinna excerpt:
"In January 1859, Doctor Michael Meshaka was appointed U.S. vice consul in Damascus. He served until April 22, 1870, and was succeeded by his son, Nasif, who served until February 10, 1914. On October 24, 1900, Nasif Meshaka reported that exports to the United States from Damascus and surrounding areas were valued at US$172,071.66. Principal exports were "oriental sundries" (copper, and brass work, textiles, and inlaid furniture), wool, rugs, "provisions" (raisins and dried apricots), and sausage casings. Ten years earlier, Syrian exports were valued at $6,935.45."
