Not much information in the Carl Smith cards on Robert Reed that I can find. He married Anna Maria Diaz or Dias at the Roman Catholic Cathedral on 2 May 1861. [CS card 00135693GIF]  He was Protestant, but I don't think he is buried in the Colonial Cemetery at Happy Valley. Their daughter Lucretia Maria Reed was baptised on 24 February 1867 at the RC Cathedral at 38 days old. Anna Maria married Charles Bond after Reed's death. Lucretia married Patrick Murray.

C.E. Warren's funeral

James Kynoch was Senior Inspector of Works at the time of his death and had been with the PWD for 18 years. He had worked on the construction of the Panama Canal. He was one of the original promoters of the Kowloon Golf Club, a member of the Kowloon Cricket Club and a member of the Committee of the Union Church, Kowloon. He seems to have been a long standing friend and PWD contact of my grandfather, Charles Warren and a Kowloon neighbour. He is one of the twenty or so people listed in the SCMP as attending Charles Warren's funeral at St Michael's Cemetery in June 1923.
