A record of the Willess family written by Martha Mihallie Bundrant Willess shows she wrote her name "Mihallie" and not "Mahalia" as most spell it.
Thanks,

The Death Notice is incorrect and she was born Lottie Victoria and used that name throughout her life.

Try these coordinates...

We drove up to the property...seems like the sign over the driveway said "OTP" or something like that for Old Trant Place. We parked outside the property and walked in. The house looked like no one lived there.

RE: Rupert Watson
I have submitted a significant edit to Rupert's father Walter's remorial, but I'm not quite ready yet to improve his or his mother Maria's - there's a few more details I want to uncover.

Believe it or not, I lived in Sunshine for 10 years but had no clue about Rupert, and I worked for about 4 years at the Newport campus of Victoria University, right next door to the railway workshops where Rupert worked...

I would love to see better wording for the memorials of the Tuckers, but I don't know whether it's appropriate for me to do that. Their stories are incredibly tragic and moving.

Many thanks again,
Sharon

Thank you for the photo of Rupert Watson
You are an absolute gem, Rebecca! Our family has not known about Rupert until very recently, and I had not seen the article and photo in the Leader.

Many, many thanks!

as of the Brewers' slab, i suppose it should be in the hands of the municipal authority.

RE: Katherine Rachel Brewer
Dear Mrs. Peterson
The year 1948, China was at the climax of its last civil war, the communists were defeating the KMT on every front. Since there is no official account on this incident, my best guess would be that Mrs Anderson, sister Nordlund and another Estonian man were either robbed and murdered by deserters, or just bandits which were quite common in the mountainous areas at that time. For your question around the demolition of foreign cemeteries around China in the early 50s, the period was characterized by several events, internally the anti-rightist movement (an anti-west movement) and most of foreigners in China were deported around this period too, and the Korean War, which made any western presence in China inappropriate.I hope my answer can be a little help.

About the Brewers
Several years ago, i came across this stone slab lay in the northwest corner the Jiefang Park, the slab read "Katherine Rachel Brewer, and Harold Brewer" a mother and her infant son , both died in the 1870s (i don't remember the exact date), what is so sad is that the slab has been moved to presumably lost, i hope that it has ended up in proper hands...

subject needs further clarification
First of all, thanks for the records of Hankow foreign cemetery, which is really a great contribution. However, there are some entries that need further clarification. In regard to the Martha J Anderson and sister Nordlund who were obviously victims of a robbery taking place in 1948, the account has that they were killed during the culture revolution, which is clearly not right, as the culture revolution took place between 1966-1976. I hope that this can be a little help.
A historian resides in Hankow....
