Assad Alexander Thomas/Tannous

Master Assad Alexander Thomas/Tannous

Assad (Assed or Essed) Alexander Thomas, 5m, was born 8 November 1911 in the Lebanon. He boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as a third class passenger (ticket number 2625, 8 10s 4d). He was accompanied by his mother Thamine and uncle Charles.

Assad and his mother became separated during the sinking and Charles carried the baby to lifeboat 16. He begged for the child to be rescued and Winnie Troutt took it upon herself to take the child into the lifeboat.

Assad died on 12 June 1931.
