    Sdr Megat Iskandar,
    Mengenai Panjang Ogek, anaknya yang bernama Taha dikenali dengan nama Penghulu Mat Taha. Saya cicit Mat Taha atau nama sebenar Mat Taha bin Mohamad, beliau adalah Penghulu Layang-Layang Kanan, Parit sekitar tahun 1920an – 1940an (betul rumahnya diguna dalam filem anna & the king). Setelah meleliti salasilah Panjang Ogek dalam Geni, nama Mat Taha tidak terdapat dalam keturunan Panjang Ogek bin UdA Katab bin Toh Adab (Toh dewa Seri Mahajara). Jika suadara ada cacatan mengenai salasilah keluarga Mat Taha bin Mohamad, saya ingin dapatkan maklumat tersebut kerana kami sedang mencari maklumat.

    Salam just want to say hello to you here. On Facebook I am friends with some of your clan. Don’t think we are friends on Facebook yet. I came across your blog while doing some research on my maternal side of the family. Just to get some facts correct. My grandfather is the late YM Raja Musa bin Raja Mahadi. In his lifetime his best friend was the late Datuk Megat Khas. In fact I treat Tan Sri Megat Najmuddin like my uncle as my mum and him is quite close. He just attended my sister’s wedding a few months ago. I am trying to understand my lineage and if you can help me all the better.
    I understand that my grandfather have 3 other brothers.and 1 sister 1. is Raja Ngah Ali (Raja Salamah bt Raja Yahaya b Raja Daud Shahid with Raja Muhammad Iskandar b Raja Omar b Sultan Ali (SP 24) 2. Raja Yahya Raja Mahadi (Raja Mahadi with Raja Salamah) 3. Raja Musid (Raja Mahadi with not sure of name 4. Raja Musa Raja Mahadi (Raja Mahadi with Raja Salamah) married Raja Teh Maimunah Raja Chik Abdul Hamid
    As you shall realise by now I did not put Raja Mahadi bin ?. Reason is my great grand father is somewhat a mystery. We are not even sure where he is buried. (We suspect he is buried in Saymat where my grandfather was born.) Not sure what is the great mystery but there you go. In our family tree that we created currently our research indicate that he is Raja Mahadi b. Raja Ngah Bakar b. Raja Omar b. Sultan Ali (SP 24).
    Just wondering if you can assist. This matter have been boggling my mind in the last few weeks .
    If you can assist please communicate with me directly to my email address.

    Thanks. Wassalam.

    Late last year I contacted you regarding Laksamana Mohamad Amin and his descendants. I am still looking for the descendants ofHj Mohd Noh bin Laksamana Mohamad Amin and would appreciate it if you could contact me as soon as possible.

      I’m sorry Engku, I may have overlooked. Anyways, about Hj Mohd Noh…he is the father of the late Laksamana Lope Bahauddin. His wife is Wan Aishah – daughter of Orang Kaya Menteri Wan Md Isa. According to my grandfather (who was considered the most senior grandchild of Menteri Wan Md Isa), Laksamana Lope Bahauddin died childless. He had a brother named Che Mat but that’s the only info we have.

      Laksmana Lope Bahauddin died in 1947 and was laid to rest at Masjid Lama Taiping.
