Update :

A descendant of Cheong Koon Seng informed that Masiyah was married to a relative of Cheong Koon Seng. When her husband died at sea, she was invited to stay with him at his house 299 River Valley Road (Valleyside)

One possibility is that Masiyah husband Mr Tan was related to Mrs Cheong Ann Bee who was Tan Huay Neo. Tan Huay Neo was also born around 1853 
Maybe Masiyah married Tan Huay Neo’s brother.

Mrs Cheong Ann Bee, Cheong Koon Seng, Mrs Cheong Koon Seng was buried in Blk 2 C plot no 120, 121, 122.  There was a big plot 123, 124 reserved for his brother Cheong Koon Hong who was buried else where as he became a Christian. Mrs Tan nee Masiyah must be a close member of Cheong Koon Seng family to be given a family plot , plot no 125
