Id seen the marriage between Emily Ellen Clark and Kenneth McKelvie (14 May 1909) as well. At the time  I wasnt sure about it because the article mentioned that Emily was also a second daughter of Mr and Mrs James Clark of Shanghai and because it did not mention his job like everywhere else (and Id seen a different James Clark in some of the other papers).

I hadn't seen the Gwulo ref as I was not looking at HK. I think these are all references to the same family but I just need to reconcile the dates, places, etc. Some I got from newspaper items but maybe the burial and grave inscriptions are more accurate. Will check HK sources too.

Interesting that they are all listed on the Guignard plot. I wonder if what looks to be three drawers or compartments stacked behind the inscription, contain the ashes as I believe some of them died in Shanghai? Theodore Guignard or the son George Theodore was in the auto business and had the Renault dealership for at least north China, maybe all of China. J B Taylor was involved or owned Central Garage in HK and also had branch operations in Shanghai I think. The son was also in the auto business.
Another Guignard ( Rene ) was the accounts man for General Motors for China and was later based in Switzerland.
They are all connected.
