Could this be possiby another addition for an unknown child?:

NO. 328. - FEMALE. - ESTIMATED AGE, 14. *(15) - HAIR, GOLDEN BROWN. FOUR FOOT SIX INCHES

CLOTHING - Lace trimmed red and black overdress; black underdress; green striped underskirt; black woolen shawl; black slippers.

NO MARKS - Very dark skin; refined features.

THIRD CLASS.

I wonder if anyone else realizes the fact that this could be Nourelain (Laura) Boulos. She was the only female child of the Foreigner catagory to perish. It does make sense. She was nine years old, and that makes sense that she would be about 4'6. I have a friend whose husband had family links in Syria, and their daughter is nine and about 4'7, so perhaps this is the body of little Nourelain. If so, and if she was not buried at sea, wouldn't it be proper to provide her with a gravestone or something to commemorate her memory?

ET itself identifies body 328 as probably that of Helini Zabour. Buried in Mount Olivet Cemetary, Halifax.

As far as I know, the tombstone itself is not engraved with a name.

Who exactly equated Miss Zabour to #328, or why, is not detailed here at ET. Phil H., any further info on this?

The answer to that question is one I want to know. Miss Zabour's age is never mentioned. I know that most of the women and children in the Foreiger catagory were saved, but there are many of them who were not saved. Why was Helini Zabour said to be #328? I know that three bodies were dug up to try for identification, and could this work for this poor soul? If Miss Zabour was a child, maybe this would apply, but what if she was some 49 year old woman? I suppose this is another Titanic mystery never to be solved.
