Liu’s Family Grave
The grave was rebuilt by the Liu’s clan from the indigenous village of Sheung Shui Wai adjacent to Fu Tei Au. Erected on a secluded hillside, the original gravestone still stands solemnly despite its relatively poor condition. A closer examination of the inscription reveals the grave’s owners in detail – it was intended to commemorate the tenth generation ancestor of the Liu’s and his two wives. The new grave is now able to present the said epitaph with better clarity after a major revamp recently. It shows that it was reconditioned during the seventh year of the Tongzhi reign of the Qing dynasty, which is equivalent to year 1868, approximately 153 years ago. Moreover, the carved headstone of this joint burial has also shed light on the former name of Fu Tei Au as “Har Shui Ling”, leading us one step closer to piecing together the untold history of this place.
