In Reply to: Louie, Lei etc. from Canton to SF...anyone there? posted by Alicia Louie on April 16, 1999 at 02:07:39:
Hi !!!! My grandfather came from Canton to San Francisco also. I am trying to find more about his background. He came in the early 1900's, worked for the railroad as a doctor and settled in Mexico. Married a mexican and had 16 children there. His chinese name was Lui Kay (I am not sure of he spelling). I would like to know more about your assn. Thanks !!
: It means "thunder," and other ways of spelling it are Lui, Luey, Loui, and in Mandarin it is Lei2. If anyone reading this is from Canton, let's see if we're related.
: Family in a nutshell: My family currently resides in San Francisco, CA. My grandfather came over with a wife and two children. By the time the children were about 20, he had two more (one being my dad) Now the family has 3 boys and one girl. After his first wife died he went back to China and found another wife, when another son was born in SF. Now, two sons and the daughter live in SF, the stepson last heard of in NY or NJ, and the eldest son passed away with his family currently living in Monterey Park near Los Angeles, CA. We are a part of the Kwong/Louie/Fong assn. in San Francisco Anyone know anything or are a part of this? Thank you.
