Chia Keng Chiang, death 6 April 1908, Singapore

The many friends of Mr Chia Keng Chiang will regret to hear of his death which took place at his residence, No. 40 Ann Siang Hill, this morning. He was 39 years of age. He has been in the employ of Messrs Huttenbach Bros and Company, as the chief store-keeper for about eleven years. The deceased was the third son of the late Mr Chia Ann Siang, and leaves a large family to mourn his loss. He was well-known for his generosity and kind-heartedness to those in distress, and his untimely departure will be a serious loss to the Chinese generally. [The Straits Times, 6 April 1908, Page 7]
