I have a photo of a man named Mohd Amin but none of his descendants know his father's name. Mohd Amin lived in Jalan Stony, Kg Baru, Kuala Lumpur and worked as a market supervisor at Pasar Chow Kit before the war. He was popular by two call names, Mat Amin Pasar and Mat Amin Chow Kit. His house was in front of the Sultan Sulaiman club house. He probably died in 1936. His portrait showed him in baju Melayu with the Johor type of neckline, telok belanga. I suppose he was originally from Johor or belonged to a Johor family? He was a Javanese Malay man. He married 4 wives and had 21 children. Does anybody know more about him?
Another interesting name is Muhammad Amin bin Haji Mahmud. Who was Muhammad Amin bin Haji Mahmud? Does anybody know him?
British historian, J. M. Gullick wrote the name Mohd Amin bin Hassan in one of his books, A History of Kuala Lumpur 1856-1939. Who was Mohd Amin bin Hassan? Does anybody know him?
