: I am also looking for the origins of TOY family name.
: My Father, JUE HIM TOY (from Canton) entered the U.S. via San Francisco
: 15 Feb 1918. Unfortunately I have no documentation available
: at this time. Would appreciate any data, or helpful hints.
I am currently transcribing a ship for the ISTG on the Rootweb.com site. The ship is the SS Tacoma from Hong Kong which arrived on July 25, 1896 at the Port of Tacoma. On board was a Toy Yui from China 24 yrs, male. I will not have this ship done for some time for posting to the website, however you might look here in the future for this name. I have not been able to find a reference to this name anywhere yet however. Good Luck.
