Sunday, January 23, 1927


According to the 1927 Juror List, a Mr. Mecke and a Mr. De Kent worked for the Nederlandsch-Indische Handelsbank.However, there is no Huizer. I suspect it is Huysser as the name appears in the 1926 list. Huysser is listed as a merchant, G. E. Huygen. In 1926, Mecke and Huysser resided at 6 and 8 Mody Road respectively whilst Heintzen and Knottnerus resided at 10 Mody Road.
