This portrait was provided by Baharin Tamby (Singapore)
Full name: Amnah bt Haji Mohd Sharif
Call name: Bapak addressed her as Mak Cik Amnah. I refer to her as Nenek Amnah. Mak Bedah referred to her as Nek Amnah.
Date of birth: circa 1915 ... she married circa 1927, possibly at age 12, after menarche.
Husband: Haji Ahmad bin Haji Abdul Latif (abbreviated as HABHAL), saudagar kicap terkenal di Singapura. He is the son of Haji Abdul Latiff bin Tambi (Ulama' Nusantara) from Tengkera in Malacca.
HABHAL married twice, first to Amnah bt Haji Mohd Sharif, and second to Mahani bt Haji Khalil. Kak Fuziah said Mahani bt Haji Khalil was HABHAL's relative.
Nenek Amnah was the first wife of HABHAL. She probably married to HABHAL circa 1927, after her brother Mohd Yusope bin Haji Mohd Sharif (Walid; Tok Walid) married Nenek Inche in 1920.
"Nenek Inche or Bik Esah is Aishah bt Mohd Amin @ Mat Amin Pasar/Mat Amin Chow Kit of Kg Baru in KL. Mat Amin Pasar was the famous Javanese market supervisor (penguasa pasar) of the old Chow Kit market before he died circa 1936. He was appointed by the British in KL. He opened Kg Baru in KL. He built the first house in Kg Baru, KL - across from the Sultan Sulaiman Club."

NENEK AMNAH'S DEMISE
Date of demise: circa late 1960s, before 1970 (HABHAL remarried in 1970). She was possibly 54 years old when she died. She was interred at Bidadari Cemetery in Singapore, but was later exhumed and relocated to another grave site, Pusara Abadi Muslim Cemetery at Lim Chu Kang, between 2002 and 2004.
