This rare handdrawn map lists the names and indicated the graves of a number of native inhabitants of Semarang who were buried at what was subsequently called 'Patjes Berg'. It also indicates the garden of the house originally owned by a Dutchman called Klein, but inhabited by A.A. Ellinghuizen in 1827, as well as the Campoong Randoe Sarie. The 'Patjes Berg' is bordered by 'Semarang's Groot Rivier' and 'De Groote Weg', which crosses the river by a bridge.
