Death Record

Salim seems to have went by the name Samuel here in Greensboro. His marker has his name engraved as Salim R Dakash. The other family members seem to have used that spelling as well for their last name. There must have been some confusion as to the correct spelling when his death certificate was made.

His marker also indicates he was born under a different name, Harriet Harack. I could find no records using that name. It also says he was born in Beirut.

On travel records he indicated that he was born in Syria. He visited a friend in San Paola, Brazil shortly before his death in 1923. One daughter also indicated she was born in Brazil. The family must have moved there shortly after the turn of the century.


Syrian Merchant Dies at Daughters Home Here

Funeral services will be held at ST. Benedict;s Catholic church at 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon for Samuel R. Dakach, a native of Syria, who died at St. Leo's Hospital Sunday morning following an illness of six weeks duration. Interment will be made in Green Hill Cemetery.

Mr. Dakach, who was 52 years of age, had lived in Greensboro about a year, coming here from Kinston, where he also lived about a year. Prior to that he had lived in South America for a period of 30 years, he having left his native county when he was 20 years of age. The deceased was a merchant, operating a store on East Market Street.

Mr. Dakach is survived by his wife: two daughters, Mrs. Fred Diab, 829 Dillard street, with whom he made his home, and Mrs. Isabel Zaytoun, of Roxboro, and two brothers, R. R. Dakach, who lives in South America, and N. R. Dakach who lives in Syria.
