Rashīd Al-Hāj 'Adb al-Husayn Bazzī

Mr Rashīd Al-Hāj 'Adb al-Husayn Bazzī  (Rachid al-Hakk Abdul Hussein Razi)was born in Bint Jbayl near Tibnīn, Lebanon around 1882.

He was the son of 'Abd a-Husayn Al-Hāj Sulaymān Bazzī and had two known siblings, Mūsá and Habīb. He was married with two children, although their identities are not known.

Mr Bazzī boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as a third class passenger (ticket number 2629 which cost £7, 4s, 7d). He was travelling to Detroit, Michigan and it is evident that he already had family living in the USA.

Rashīd Bazzī died in the sinking and his body, if recovered, was never identified. His widow and two children later received financial assistance from various Titanic relief funds.
