Master Elias ("Louis Garrett") Nicola-Yarred

Elias (

Master Elias Nicola-Yarred, 12, from Hakoor, Lebanon was travelling with his sister Jamila to Jacksonville, Florida to meet their father. Part of the family already lived in the United States while some of the siblings remained in Lebanon.

They boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as third class passengers and were rescued in (probably) Collapsible C. Once they arrived in Florida their names were anglicized - Elias became Louis Nicholas Garrett and Jamila became Amelia Garrett.

Louis Garrett died in Atlanta, Georgia on 31 May, 1981. His last remaining sibling Isaac died in March 1985 in Jacksonville at the age of 91.
