Thank you so much for your post. I'll check more on those names and on the book as well. Though Leong is such a common name my great grandfather went by the last name of Achiu and ended up with Leong as a first name. He did however run a store as well as a blacksmith shop in Waialua, O'ahu. How interesting because no I didn't know the name changes for Kwantung. Thank you once again, I have a new place to start at....
