Lee Elay, our great grandfather who came from China was a duck trader

to trade in ducks.

The site at Kampung Langgar is about 5.5km from the Pekan and Kampung Lamir junction.

This is uncle Yong Guan when we first went looking for the graves in 2005.

The same place today is overgrown with bushes.

Even the palm oil tree is already as high as a coconut tree.

In 2005 i went with my dad and uncle Yong Guan,
the bushes then .

and after 2 hours of chopping with 7 parangs and grave are remarked
but it is difficult to identify whose it is
because wood was used earlier instead of granite.
