Pierre Edmond Mathieu, Death, 12 June 1919, Penang

It is with deep regret says the Pinang Gazette that we have to announce the death of Mr. Pierre Edmond Mathieu at the age of 62, which took place on Friday after an illness lasting several months. The deceased gentleman went home to France in 1866 for education, together with his eldest brother the late Mr. Ernest Emmannuel Mathieu, who died some years later as lieutenant in the French Navy. In 1878 he came out to Penang again with his youngest brother,the late Mr.Joseph Frederic Mathieu. The deceased gentleman was the son of the late Monsieur Pierre Edmond Mathieu of Orleans, France, merchant, who was the French Consul of Penang, a grandson of the late General Mathieu of Orleans, France, and cousin of the late Monsieur Unal of France, who was Resident Consul of Tonkin, and a brother of the late Mr. Joseph Fredric Mathieu of Province Wellesley. He had several cousins who were officers in the French Army, who died two and three years ago during the great war. The deceased was married twice, first to a Miss Lock who has a son M Vincent Mathieu (engineer), at present in Cardiff,England, and second to Miss Ottzen, daughter of Captain A. Ottzen of Finsberg, Denmark, the late proprietor and manager of Nagga Timbol and Reliance Estates, Serdang, Deli, by whom he had two daughters and a surviving son who deeply regret his loss.
