I an looking for information about my grandfather who was
a merchant in Chinatown, Hawaii. He owned a drygoods
store and lived in the back of the store. His name is
Tong Hong and genealogy records say he was also known as
Kong Sang. He came to Hawaii to work in the sugarcane
fields and later set up his store. He left a family
in Guangdong, China and never returned. He married and
raised a family of eight children in Hawaii. He belonged
to a Chinese Society and I think the name was Kong Shong
Doo Society. Any information would be most helpful.
