|Trevor Baxter||Titanic grave site.|
my name is Trevor Baxter i am a Titanic researcher and live in the UK, i am trying to locate as many Titanic grave sites and memorials that are still surviving today, i see you have a memorial to 3rd class passenger William Borek real name Halim Mubarik from Lebanon, would you or could you get photos of is grave site and a location and a cemetery layout plan please this will help with my researcher, here is som information you can but on the memorial.
Master Halīm Mubārik was born in Hardīn, Lebanon on 15 July 1907.
He was the son of Jirjis Mubārik Bū Tannūs (b. 1874) and Amīnah Iskandar Nāsīf Abī Dāghir (b. 1887). He had one sibling, an elder brother named Jirjis (b. 1904).
Halīm's father had emigrated to the USA in 1908 and settled in Clearfield, Pennsylvania where he ran a grocery store. A family friend Antūn Mūsą Yazbak, who was returning to Lebanon to marry, was asked to escort the young Halīm, his mother Amīnah and brother Jirjis across the Atlantic upon his return. Antūn's new bride was Halīm's aunt Sīlānah, his mother's sister.
Halīm set out from Hardīn with his mother, brother, aunt and uncle Yazbak and several others from their village bound for Beirut where they would travel to Marseille and then on to Cherbourg where, on 10 April 1912, they boarded the Titanic as third class passengers (joint ticket number 2661 which cost £15, 4s, 11d).
On the night of the sinking Halīm, his mother and brother met up with Antūn and Sīlānah Yazbak who accompanied them on their way to the upper decks. Whilst stories differ as to how the family escaped, it is generally believed that the women and children escaped in collapsible lifeboat C. Antūn Yazbak was lost in the sinking.
Upon their rescue by the Carpathia and eventual arrival in New York, Amīnah and her sons were treated for shock and exposure. Coupled with that Halīm and Jirjis had contracted measles. Following recuperation the party made their way to Pennsylvania to be reunited with family and friends.
Halīm became known in America as William and he and his family settled in Clearfield, Pennsylvania where his father ran a dry goods store. He later gained two further siblings, Roy (1916-1990) and Daniel (1918-1986) but his mother returned to Lebanon in the early 1920s where she died and he and his father and brothers moved to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
William was married to Pennsylvanian-born Jennie Sarkis (b. 1914), the daughter of Lebanese immigrants, and had three daughters: Evelyn (b. 1930), Lois Ann (b. 1934) and Marlene (b. 1936). The family settled in Observatory near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and William operated his own business. He reportedly disliked talking about the Titanic disaster.
William Borek died in Observatory on 29 August 1975 aged 68. His widow Jennie died in 2006.

I'm looking for the family of a Mike Weaver. Do you know if the one you listed was in the 740th tank battalion during WW2? My dad was.

John Leo Battin Ohio, Births and Christenings Index, 1774-1973 Record (Film: 1877982) her middle name is noted as Elizabeth. Polly was something noted from family so I do not believe that will be officially documented anywhere but was a common nickname for Mary.

You are the most difficult person I have ever met on Find a Grave.
I have no wish to ever communicate with you again. You do not own these gravesite and keeping them from people who cherish their memories is a travesty.

I am sorry my fat fingers clicked on the August not the September as I meant to do for her birthday. I changed it in the edit category and just submitted.
Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice note about my dealings with this other member; you reminded me that the majority of us are on here to make it a fun and useful site, and to honor the lost. I don't understand the snarkiness of her. Thanks again. Robin
|Snake||RE: Mike Braun|
Ask admin anything you want. If they merge the memorials, I'll just make another. He is my relative not yours.
