LEE clan from Taishan
Posted by: Tracee Lee-Holloway (ID *****7265) Date: October 01, 2002 at 11:13:47

Hi:

I am searching for any information regarding 5 of my grandfather's brothers that came to Canada in 1903-1905.
Landed in Vancouver, then settled in Hamilton, Ontario.
My grandfather is Lee Ying Poy circa 1878-1932.
Born in Taishan at Wing Hong. I am trying to locate
pre-Republic maps to determine just where Wing Hong used to be. My Gung-gung was #2 of 6. #1 brother was Lee Chung, #4 Lee Tong and #6 Lee Gin.

I am searching for descendents of brother #3 and #5, names unknown. They operated Lee Hing Laundry (1900-1912)at 119 James Street, Hamilton, Ontario til the city changed the residence address to #149 James S. All the brothers were
members of the LEE Family Association of Toronto.

Criminality may have been a large issue for my ancestors, with links to the opium and heroin trade.

Any kernal of information would be helpful.


Thanks,
Tracee Lee-Holloway
