Mohd Yusope bin Haji Mohd Sharif (Walid) 1896-1953 (2) Family


Family of Haji Mohd Yusope bin Haji Mohd Sharif

Family background

Both datuk moyang Haji Mohd Sharif bin Ismail and his wife Fatimah bt Mohamad are related. They are descendants of Nakhoda nan Intan and his people in Malacca, but re-settled in Penang in the late 1800s-early 1900s.

Haji Mohd Sharif is descended from the Malacca wife of Nakhoda nan Intan - the original village could be at Tengkerah, Kg Hulu or even Kg Pali.

Haji Mohd Sharif's mother is Inche Nyonya bte Shahabudin, imam of Masjid Tengkerah, who is actually a Chinese Muslim, possibly directly from mainland China as Masjid Tengkerah has a lot of imported colourful porcelain tiles. I don't know if he was a convert or a born Muslim.

Bapak said there is Makam Shahbudin in Tengkerah - that could be him. There is another Makam Shahbudin in Jalan Panjang near Rumah Banda Hilir. However, this Imam Shahbudin in Jalan Panjang could be an imam from Cirebon, Java in Indonesia. According to Mahadzir bin Mohamad (cicit Tok Haji Nordin), some people used to visit Makam Shahbudin in Jalan Panjang. However, they have stopped visiting that makam.

Nakhoda nan Intan was a famous imam from Pagaruyung, Sumatera Barat. He was a close friend of Habib Noh Alhabshi in Singapore. Mak is a descendant of Habib Noh Alhabshi.

Nakhoda nan Intan built Masjid Tengkerah in 1728. He then moved to Penang and built Masjid Jamek Batu Uban in 1734.

Fatimah is the sister of Ami Aziz Alyamani of Jelutong, Penang. Fatimah is written as Patma in Walid's BC. Bapak also cited her as Patma. Their father is Mohamad bin Abdullah, a descendant of Nakhoda nan Intan in Malacca or Penang. Bapak described Patma as "putih macam Cina."

Ami Aziz originated from Kg Hulu or Tengkerah, Malacca. He left Malacca to marry his relative, Sharifah Rahmah in Jelutong and settled in Jelutong. Sharifah Rahmah is descended from Syed Sheikh Al-Hadi.

Syed Sheikh Al-Hadi was born in Kg Hulu in Malacca and moved to many places to work, including Pulau Penyengat (Riau, Indonesia), Johor, Makkah and Penang. He finally settled in Penang.

Walid's parents

Father: Haji Mohd Sharif bin Ismail
Mother: Fatimah bt Mohamad

-----
Walid's birth

Bapak gave me a copy of Walid's birth certificate(BC). Walid was born at home on 11 February 1896 in Rumah Banda Hilir, Malacca. His birth was registered by Zenal (Tok Zainal) - the Walid's BC had Tok Zainal's name as registrant.

Why did Tok Zainal register Walid's birth? Where was Tok moyang Haji Mohd Sharif when Walid was born?

Tok moyang Haji Mohd Sharif was probably in Makkah - he went with 2 other men. Upon his return, he built Rumah Banda Hilir.

Bapak said Rumah Bandar Hilir was built in stages. The oldest part was the rear building which had atap roof. The more recent building was the big Rumah Banda Hilir which Tok moyang Haji Mohd Sharif built after his return from the Hajj in Makkah in 1897. This big house had atap genting (clay roof tiles).

Rumah Banda Hilir existed for 110 years, from 1897 to 2007, when it was demolished to extend Masjid Banda Hilir. I lived there after I was born in 1958 at Malacca Hospital, till I was 5 years old; the big house was 61-65 years old, and the floor planks were strong but had plenty of holes. The rear building was thin walls like wafer.

A hut was built for Walid and Nenek Inche near the toilet side when they got married. They did not sleep in the big house, but in the hut (bangsal kayu). The hut was demolished when we lived in Rumah Banda Hilir in 1950s-1960s.

Walid's sibs

From Mak Bedah (26 December 2015):
I obtained the following info on adik-beradik Tok Walid Haji Mohd Yusope from Mak Bedah at kenduri kahwin Azizah bt Ramli (anak Rabi), at Dewan Al-Falah, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Jengka Pusat, Pahang.

Adik-beradik Haji Mohd Yusope bin Haji Mohd Sharif:
  1. Haji Mohd Yusope (Walid, Tok Walid; eldest child)
  2. Mahani (Nenek Ani)
  3. Alijah (Nenek Jah)
  4. Amnah (Nenek Amnah)
  5. Asiah (Nenek Ya)
Tok Walid is the only son and the eldest of 5 sibs.

-----
Walid's union

Tentative date of marriage: February/March/April/May 1920

Walid was 24 years old when he married Nenek Inche in February/March/April/May 1920.

Walid berkahwin dengan Nenek Inche semasa Nenek Inche berusia 12 tahun (Nenek Inche kata 12 tahun tetapi Mak Bedah kata 13 tahun atau "12 going on 13").

Nenek Inche was nearly 13 years old when she married in February/March/April/May 1920.

Narrow range:
Most probable conception date: 11 May 1920 - 15 May 1920
Most probable sexual intercourse date that led to the pregnancy: 8 May - 15 May 1920

Wider range:
Possible conception date: 10 May - 20 May 1920
Possible sexual intercourse date that led to the pregnancy: 5 May - 20 May 1920

Nenek Inche was already pregnant by 20 May 1920. She gave birth to Mak Ainon on 6 February 1921 when she was 13+ and Tok Walid was almost 25 years old (5 days before his 25th birthday).

Kena cari Surat Nikah Tok Walid and Nenek Inche untuk pastikan tarikh perkahwinan mereka.

-----
Haji 1962/63

Nenek Inche pakai serban putih (kain gauze halus) sebab dia sudah mengerjakan Haji pada tahun 1962/63. Nenek Inche pergi Haji ikut datuk Dr Che Lah bin Md Joonos, bapa kepada Mak.

-----
Nenek Inche's father

Mohd Amin ialah penguasa Pasar Chow Kit sekitar 1950-an. Pasar batu Chow Kit dibina sekitar 1955. Tarikh tepat Mohd Amin meninggal dunia tidak diketahui, tetapi arwah Bapak ada beritahu Mohd Amin meninggal dunia apabila Bapak terjatuh. Bapak pun tak ingat bila tarikh sebenar Mohd Amin meninggal dunia. Pak Cik Hassan (Kajang) memberitahu Mohd Amin mungkin meninggal in 1936. Ini bermakna Bapak berusia 5 tahun semasa Mohd Amin meninggal dunia.

-----
Nenek Inche's date of birth (DOB)

Tarikh lahir Nenek Inche tidak diketahui dengan tepat sebab tiada bukti atau sijil lahirnya.

Tahun anak-anak Nenek Inche dilahirkan telah pun diketahui daripada dokumen yang ditulis oleh Mak Nya Gombak, ibu Jamaliah Abdul Aziz. Jamaliah menghantarnya melalui Facebook pada 28 Disember 2015.

Jika tarikh lahir anak pertama diketahui, kita mudah tahu tahun lahir Nenek Inche sebab dia kahwin pada usia 12 tahun (menurut Nenek Inche) atau 13 tahun (12 going on 13; menurut Mak Bedah).

Ini bermakna, anak sulungnya lahir semasa ia berusia 12/13 tahun. Mak Bedah kata jarak antara Nenek Inche dan anak sulungnya hanya 13 tahun, mereka macam adik-beradik.

Siapa anak sulung Nenek Inche? Mak Ainon adalah anak sulung Nenek Inche. Bilakah anak sulung Nenek Inche dilahirkan? Bilakah Mak Ainon dilahirkan?

1. Ainon (lahir Ahad, 10 pagi, 6/2/1921)

Since Mak Ainon lahir pada 6 Februari 1921, maka tarikh Nenek Inche mula mengandung anak pertamanya ialah approximately -9 bulan  = May 1920.

Date of conception: 16 May 1920
Last Menstrual Period (LMP); 2 May 1920
Cycle: 28 days

Most probable conception date: 11 May 1920 - 15 May 1920
Most probable sexual intercourse date that led to the pregnancy: 8 May - 15 May 1920

Possible conception date: 10 May - 20 May 1920
Possible sexual intercourse date that led to the pregnancy: 5 May - 20 May 1920

Nenek Inche berusia 12+ tahun (-1 bulan) pada April 1920 apabila ia berkahwin dengan Tok Walid, dan 13+ tahun semasa melahirkan anak pertamanya pada Februari 1921.

Jadi, tarikh lahir Nenek Inche ialah 1920-12/13 tahun = May-July 1907 (jika kahwin pada usia 13 tahun) atau May-July 1908 (jika kahwin pada usia 12 tahun).

In my notes, I wrote that she was born in 1906, based on her age at death.

However, according to Mak Bedah, Nenek Inche died in 1978 at age 71. So her DOB is 1978 - 71 = May-July 1907.

Jika dikira "reproductive age" Nenek Inche, ia melahirkan anak terakhir pada 1945. She was productive for 26 years (38 - 12) or 27 years (39 - 12). She had reached menopause at the end of the war? Pak Saleh was born in February 1945 during the war. The war ended in Sept 1945. There was no food for 7 months, and Pak Saleh was fed tea (air teh) instead of milk.

Anak terakhir 1945 - 38 = 1908 ..... Nenek Inche was 38 years old, putus haid at 38? Awal sangat?
Anak terakhir 1945 - 39 = 1907 ..... was Nenek Inche 39 years old when she putus haid?
Anak terakhir 1945 - 40 = 1906
Anak terakhir 1945 - 41 = 1904
Anak terakhir 1945 - 42 = 1903 ..... most Malay ladies putus haid at age 42.

So we still don't know when exactly Nenek Inche was born - could be May-July 1906, 1907 or 1908. She was nearly 13 years old when she married in April 1920.
