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.
