Mr Gerios Yousseff , 26, from Lebanon (Syria) boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as a third class passenger (ticket number 2685, £7 4s 6d) together with his cousins Shawneene George Whabee, Tannous Thomas and Tannous Doharr. The men were coming to get jobs in one of the steel mills in Youngstown, Ohio. Also accompanying them was BanouraAyoub who was coming to America to be re-united with her family in Detroit.
Shawneene and Ayoub both survived while all three men died in the sinking.
Youseff's body was later recovered (#312) and buried at Mount Olivet Cemetery, Halifax, Nova Scotia on May 10, 1912.
