From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    the united stream, or, according to others, with beautiful
    banks, the name of a river in Assyria, and also of the district
    through which it flowed (1 Chr. 5:26). There is a river called
    Khabur which rises in the central highlands of Kurdistan, and
    flows south-west till it falls into the Tigris, about 70 miles
    above Mosul. This was not, however, the Habor of Scripture.
      There is another river of the same name (the Chaboras) which,
    after a course of about 200 miles, flows into the Euphrates at
    Karkesia, the ancient Circesium. This was, there can be little
    doubt, the ancient Habor.

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)

 Habor, a partaker; a companion
