This chapter discusses the old timers. These were the type of settlers who are buried in Section 23 of the Hong Kong Cemetery. The people in this section died over a twenty-five period at the beginning of the twentieth century and had all kinds of employment. Aside from featuring a wide range of employment and an imbalance between men and women, Section 23 also contains people from a number of countries. The earliest grave in this section appears to be that of Frederick Stewart.
