You can read about the Ouyang (same as Ow Young) family name at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouyang
Finding any remaining relatives you may have in China may prove a bit more difficult without any additional information. For your information, Guangzhou is today's name for old
Canton, and it is the capital of Guangdong Province. You need to know what is the name of your ancestral village and nearest market town. You may be able to find this information (written in Chinese most likely) on the headstones of your father and grandfather. Also, look for any old letters and official documents which may contain the names of your ancestral village and nearest market town. Also, if you had not done so already, ask some of the elders in your family clan.
Good luck in your search.......
