Michael and Phyllis married in Australia in 1917. In 1936, Phyllis and her cousin, Graham Henry Duckett, aged 18 years, died in Montrose, Australia, from carbon monoxide poisoning in an apparent double suicide.
Grandson Doug Engmann wrote (21/10/15): My grandfather emigrated to Hong Kong from Shanghai in 1949, where he was good friends with Sir Lawrence Kadoorie and where he had resided since the early 20s. My mother was his and Phyllis’ only child, and Phyllis never lived in Hong Kong as she died in 1936. My grandfather never remarried and lived in Hong Kong at the Peninsula hotel until his death. My mother moved to Shanghai to live with her father in 1936. She left Shanghai in 1946 to marry my father, who was a US serviceman who was in Shanghai at the end of the war. I knew my grandfather, as he visited us several times before his death.
