114-year-old Tunisian man living in Los Angeles in 1904

Surnames: Kamoo
I am researching the life of a woman named Abey (Abrev) KAMOO. She was born in Tunis (Tunisia or Morocco) in 1816, died in Boston, Massachusetts in 1904. Her father was living at the time of her death, in Los Angeles, California age 114 years old! She also had two brothers, both aged 88 (she and both were born triplets) living with the father.

Her father was a well known, high government official in Tunis in the early 1800s - called a "Bey." He may have been called "Abdulah Bey." He was a friend of the famous US Navy officer, Commodore Perry. Perry helped bring Abey to the US about 1838. She then married William Enrique H. KAMOO. He was a doctor in New Orleans (either from Egypt or Tunisia). He died at the start of the Civil War (1860-61?)

I would love to find the names and history of Abey's parents -- but am stuck on finding the names. Help!!
