An amazing story emerged after I informed the descendant about the rediscovery of her great great grandparents - Tan Tiang Choon and Tay Seng Neo. She checked with her aunt, who informed that her ancestor married another wife who was a Boyanese and buried below her husband. So I looked around my archives and indeed find another wife tomb,which I can't decipher her name until now .... for the Boyanese lady was called Nek Minah - inscribed in the tomb as 爪棉𦛨. She borne him two sons as seen from her tomb ...

Tiang Choon passed away in 1919 while his Boyanese wife passed away in 1914. His wife Tay Seng Neo would have passed away much earlier sometime around lunar 8th month 1913 based on tomb date
