A few feet from the trigonometry station at the summit of Jardine's Lookout, I found this old grave! Hard to believe, but it is true.

Hi There,

同治四年乙丑歲 was 1865.  Not that old.  But the red paint looked new......

Anyway, there are all sort of 'old' head stones in the local wilderness that claimed to be old.  I would put a very big question mark on this one.

On the other hand, this stone did not show the full name of its owner.  I cannot read the last word at the bottom.  The rest of the middle column read 清顯馬門庶室 which means the husband's Surname was 馬, but this is the grave of one of his concubines or second\third wife.   Maybe the last word was her surname.   The full name of the husband wasn't there either.  Just another 馬 engraved on the lower left.
