Mary ABLONG (née LEUNG, aka Leung Wai Ting) [1891-1940]
Mary was the wife of Arthur John Ablong, and they had at least 3 children: Nora, Lucy and George. Extended family members also report other children named John, Mary and Frank.
Mary is one of my great grandmothers. I don't have much information about her, other than limited anecdote from relatives that she was an actress in the Chinese Opera team that used to play at the Alhambra Theatre on Nathan Road Kowloon.
If anyone knows anything about her, I would be grateful for any further information!
Update (2018-10-20): I have found more information from the logbooks of St Michael's Catholic Cemetery (Happy Valley, Hong Kong) - thanks to the gwulo.com website and Brian Beesley on how to do this (https://gwulo.com/node/8233) via the www.familysearch.org website.
This picture was found in my grandmother Lucy Ablong's belongings, together with her father Arthur Ablong's picture. It does not have any writings on the back to identify her name.
However, one of Arthur's grand-daughters has the exact same set of pictures, and on her copy of Arthur Ablong's picture, at the back, are writings about "Mother" (name of writer unknown), which I think refer to his wife Mary Ablong here:
Arthur Ablong's registration at St Michael's Catholic Cemetery also cross references to grave #7068, which belongs to Leung Wai Ting. Based on all of the above, I believe that Arthur Ablong's wife was Leung Wai Ting (Mary), and it is likely this lady pictured here.
