Ngo Dinh Kha (3)

 Mr Ngo Dinh Kha was a gentle and pure Catholic follower and a 1st rank imperial guard high-ranking mandarin under Thanh Thai dynasty; he was the initial principal of National Education High School (Quoc Hoc) in the period of 1896 - 1902. He once drastically protested the event that the French Resident Superior had forced the King Thanh Thai to abdicate his throne by not signing signature under the petition that was set up by French to exile the King. Therefore, at that time in Hue, there was a sentence “Kha not exile the King” which was made by contemporary progressive feudal intellectuals to glorify his attitude. As a result, in the first year under Duy Tan dynasty (1907), he was withdrawn from his post and reduced 3 ranks by the French. Afterwards, King Duy Tan “considered his service” and restored the title of Minister to Ngo Dinh Kha. He was dead on February 18th, 1923, just at the time of 3 rd day in Tet of Pig year in lunar calendar at Phu Cam, at the age of 66.
 Mr Ngo Dinh Kha had two wives. In 1887, he married Magdalena Chiu; she was daughter of Michael Qut and Agnatia Quy at Phu Cam parish. But Mrs Chiu soon died of disease, having no children.
In March 1889, he remarried Anna Pham Thi Than (born in 1872). She was daughter of Paul Huyen and Anna Bui at Van Duong village, An Cuu commune, Huong Thuy district, Mrs Than’s ancestors had previously been in Quang Nam and Quang Ngai provinces, then they come to settle in Thua Thien province. She was also a religious Christian. She died in Saigon on January the 1st, 1964 at the age of 93.
Mr Ngo Dinh Kha and Mrs Pham Thi Than had 9 childrens (6 sons, 3 daughters), including: Ngo Dinh Khoi, Ngo Thi Giao, Ngo Dinh Thuc, Ngo Dinh Diem, Ngo Thi Hiep, Ngo Thi Hoang, Ngo Dinh Can, Ngo Dinh Nhu, and Ngo Dinh Luyen.
